Living the Key West Life

Key West, where you’ll learn exactly why the chickens cross the road….to get away from the iguanas!!!

We decided that Key West should be the end of our south Florida travels. Neither of us have ever been and we figured we are about as close to Key West as we may ever be, so now or never as they say! Most of the planning that took place for our south Florida trip was for our Key West portion of our travels. There is so much to do, see, and learn, so I definitely had to plan ahead. Key West is an island at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys. It is about ninety miles from Cuba with the island itself being four miles long and one mile wide, although by all the walking we did while there we may have to disagree! ๐Ÿ˜‰

There’s so much history in Key West, as well as just relaxing and taking in the beaches and Key West vibe! We scheduled 4-5 attractions for each day of our trip with an empty final day. I highly recommend this concept if you can and have extra time. We refer to it as our “final fave”. It is the last day of any trip where you don’t schedule anything. We can’t do this on most trips, but we definitely set aside a day on our longer/bigger trips. This leaves an extra day if you need some catching up to do, you can see whatever attractions you may have missed the other days of your trip. You’re bound to over-plan, have rain or weather delays, or learn about new attractions that you’d like to add to your “final fave” day.

What did we do for our final fave day, you ask? We had a relaxing day at the beach! That’s another thing you can do if you’ve seen and done everything you want, relax! Now you have a relaxing final day before heading out to your next location or back home to work. We took in the gorgeous Key West beaches, watched the cruise ships sail by while we played the day away in the water!

Do you use the concept of a “final fave” day? Do you do something else that you recommend we try?

First RV Crash and Savannah Trip

We decided to be spontaneous and changed our destination the morning of our travels. That may have proven to have caused some bumps in the road, watch the video to see more! Regardless, we enjoyed seeing Savannah and to no surprise at all, needed lots more time to see it all! We will definitely be back, maybe even for several weeks! We enjoyed the history, the homes, and the food! Since we plan to return, we would love to hear your Savannah stories and recommendations for our next trip!

Kennedy Space Center was a BLAST!

The Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida has been on our must-see list for a while now, and we were finally able to get over to the space coast! If you’re even remotely interested in anything NASA and space related, we highly encourage you to plan a trip over there! We had such a blast and didn’t even have time to see it all. If you plan a trip, I suggest you follow their itinerary because we didn’t arrive until around 11am and didn’t have enough time before closing to see everything. There are also several tours that we would’ve signed up for had we been there a second day! Check back with our blog over the next several weeks for full write ups on this trip!

It’s not YOU, it’s ME

We celebrated our 6 month nomad-iversary recently by heading off to a beachfront hotel that was bigger than our RV. We haven’t had a staycation since living in Florida, so there’s no better time than when you live in a tiny space! As beautiful as the hotel and extra space were, we missed our RV and couldn’t wait to get back! We hope you enjoy this video and would love to hear from our fellow tiny house friends about any staycations they have enjoyed! Sometimes you don’t have to get away to be away! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Enjoy!

RV Accidents, Flat Tires, and Chasing Santa

We had some hiccups on our Christmas trip from Florida to Georgia, but we made it safely and that’s all that matters! We hope you enjoy this little teaser video and make sure to comment, like, and subscribe on our YouTube Channelย for more of our videos! We hope you had an uneventful and relaxing holiday!
