We had such fun playing at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts this week! They have a small collection of art from all periods, and currently have a Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. BUT! the best part was the ARTworks interactive gallery! This is "A special place for young visitors! "Paint" with virtual paint on a giant computer screen. Change the colors in a work of art with a computer. Enjoy books, blocks, drawing and more!" The KIA is located in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan.

When many travelers think of Germany, they think of Berlin and Munich or the Rhine wine country, but there are other wonderful cities and states to visit, and Stuttgart and the state of Baden-Württemberg should be on the list. It is on the border of the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) region and is a business center for the auto industry and the U.S. military. There is plenty to see in the Stuttgart area and it’s an easy city to travel in and out of to see other parts of Baden-Württemberg. Here are some notes from my recent trip to the area.

We were lucky enough to find three great restaurants - and a coffee shop! - that espouse fresh, organic ingredients, great service, local suppliers, and more.

This month, we're focusing on ways to explore nature in Florida, specifically through dolphin and manatee encounters. One cool manatee exploration is called Captain Mike's Swimming with the Manatees. A very reasonably-priced experience, Captain Mike's offers three different tours to experience manatees first-hand. We were lucky enough to sit down and talk with Captain Mike - here's what he had to say...
