I have a treasure chest of memories from family vacations that go from horrific to the magnificent. I have a rather rambunctious family of two brothers and two somewhat normal parents, but when we are all together for an inordinate amount of time trouble always stirs.
Last weekend, I went with my family to the State Park that is directly across from our house. Jonathan Dickinson State park is 11,500 acres of wildlife sanctuary, Loxahatchee River and space to roam. It was only the second time I visited the park that I have lived across from for four years now. When I realized this I found it rather absurd. How could I have ignored the wilderness that lay in front of me all these years?
We all have been on a trip once in a our lives and have forgotten something that you thought was so important there is no way you could forget it. It is a total bummer to arrive at your destination and be missing a necessary part of your daily life because you absentmindedly left it in the kitchen, or you were in a rush and weren’t going to pack it until the last minute because you knew you’d use it before leaving. It’s funny how these things work out in life.
There have been times when I have been the starving, traveling Gator. Though I create a budget prior to my travels I always seem to overspend in one area or another.

I can offer you that "new world" in Miami by taking you through the looking glass of the Miami hipster culture.
Like many college students you are probably ending school and headed straight to the beach. Tanning it up with a margarita in hand is definitely something that I could get into. Sadly, I will be interning five days a week. On my weekends off I will be attempting to break away from the cliché beach summer and create some new adventures.
