I love to travel.  It ranks alongside tennis as my favorite hobby.  I will jump, drive, fly and cruise at any opportunity I have to get out of the country to explore, relax and have fun.  I have been to a lot of places- from Rio de Janeiro to Nairobi, Kenya to Santorini, Greece to Aruba, Jamaica, and a bunch more places I want to take ya!

Back in 2015 here at WBKR, we loaded 200 listeners onto a cruise ship and headed off to Mexico on Cruise with a DJ!  Well, guess what?  I am ready to cruise again and am about to set sail on a fun, exciting and unique new cruise line- Virgin Voyages.  And, I want YOU to go with me.

I have teamed up with my friends at Haynie Travel and Virgin Voyages and we’ve put together an incredible ADULTS ONLY Fall Break getaway.  Yes, people!  Let me repeat that for you.  It’s ADULTS ONLY!

On Sunday, October 9th, we’re going to Miami, Florida and boarding Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady. Then, we’re heading off to Mexico and The Beach Club at Bimini.  It’s going to be an amazing 5-night getaway.

Here’s a look at Virgin’s Riviera Maya itinerary.

I absolutely adore Mexico and the eastern coast of it is absolutely gorgeous.  This particular cruise ports in Cozumel and offers access to that island and Playa del Carmen.  There is literally something for everyone. There’s incredible shopping, some phenomenal beaches and all-inclusive beach clubs you can spend the day at.  Or, if adventure is your thing, you can go ziplining in the tree tops (been there, done that, got the photo), go horseback riding on the beach, enjoy the incredible snorkeling and scuba opportunities, drive around the island in a Jeep, or be inspired by the awe of Mayan ruins sites. There’s so much to see and do and we’ll be spending 16 amazing hours in port to give you the chance to check some boxes on that bucket list.

Then, we’re headed off to The Beach Club at Bimini.

25 Stunning Wildlife Photos from Amboseli National Park in Kenya

For our summer vacation, Kevin and I traveled to Africa for a safari in Kenya. Our first stop was Amboseli National Park, which is world renowned for its impressive population of elephants. And the park delivered. Not only did we see an incredible amount of elephant families, we saw giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, monkeys and, yes, a lion! Here are some of our favorite photos from our visit.

21 Heart-Stopping Photos of Beautiful Lions in Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya

I just returned from Kenya, which is home to the Masai Mara. The reserve has the densest population of lions in the world. Not only did I see a lot of lions, I saw them up close and personal in hair-raising proximity. They were majestic and amazing.
