With things opening up again, people are starting to travel. I am vaccinated so I am ready to get back to living and traveling to places. I’ve already had my first two events of the year in Texas. It was fantastic! I felt like I was doing something again and making an impact.
Learning to SCUBA Dive
I have a few more trips planned this year. I am learning how to SCUBA dive so I am traveling to Virginia for a SCUBA closed water dive. A closed water dive is designed to help you practice SCUBA skills to prepare you for open water dives. Later on, I’m traveling to Los Angeles in California to do open water SCUBA dives. I also have a few other fun events lined up while I’m in LA.
Visiting Nashville, Tennessee
While I’ve traveled to a lot of different cities, my favorite place to visit is Nashville, Tennessee. There are a lot of fun things to do that are also wheelchair accessible. You can visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, tour the Tennessee State Capitol Building, visit the Nashville Zoo or cheer on the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium.
Fun Things to Do in Naples, Florida
If Tennessee isn’t your thing, you should try Naples, Florida. I have friends there that I can’t wait to visit and spend time with. One place to check out is the Naples Pier. It’s definitely a top sightseeing location. You get a great view of the Gulf of Mexico. There’s also the Naples Zoo and the Botanical Gardens. If you’re into water sports like me, there’s a lot of places where you rent boats, kayaks and jet skis.
I know it’s going to be a great summer. Let’s get back to “somewhat normal.” If you’re vaccinated like me, I feel you should get back to life and travel if you can. Life is too short and who knows if this will happen again with some other virus or something. Enjoy it while we can! Live, love, thrive!
