Yoga class… outdoors… with baby goats? YES PLEASE!
Zebras and lemurs and llamas, oh my!
In one of the eerier sections of the museum, there are life-sized outlines of behind-the-scene circus folk performing their everyday duties. The shadows cast by the cleverly placed spotlights created an ambience that left me feeling as if I had wandered into a two-dimensional circus of ghosts.
There was something so enchanting about walking through these beautiful gardens which were decorated with giant depictions of the (extreme) past. They put a lot of attention into every detail and the entire park was incredibly clean and well-maintained, which is exactly what you would expect from a botanical dinosaur garden.
The gist is this: You and your teammates are all locked in a room. You have to search through the room to find all the clues that will lead to your escape – but you only have 60 minutes to do so.
Today I want to share with you two of my most recent videos, both done at the Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg.
Last June I went skydiving. Here is the video.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience skydiving without actually having to go skydiving. Scaredy cats, this one is for you! This is probably the closest you can get to the experience without having to jump out of a plane, and you are completely safe the entire time – especially when compared to free falling from 10,000 feet.
“This next place you have about a 25% chance of seeing a manatee, but the snorkeling is really beautiful. To get to the good spot, all you have to do is swim past those two white signs. There are all kinds of beautiful fish, turtles, and underwater plants.” Mr. Funk was the one who spoke what we were all thinking. “Ummm… The signs that say ‘danger’? Are you serious?” “Yes! It’s really pretty in there!”
“Well, get on!” said my horse guide. It was then that I noticed that we would be riding bareback. Wow, I had been horseback riding a few times before, but never have I been given the opportunity to ride bareback! How exhilarating, how thrilling… how… TERRIFYING!
