Lots of things! I started my own personal blog. I went to my very first football game-front row seats- Florida state. Went to see Snoop dogg, Unknown Hinson, Sublime & a few others live at a music fest in Orlando, got paid to spend time living on a yacht in miami as stewardess, i was a crewmember in the Miami boatshow. Had my wedding ceremony in South africa, cape town.  Went on a safari- it was awesome! Touched a leopard, went wine tasting for first time ever @ Spier,took my husband up Table Mountain, explored history on Robben island, took the longest flight of my life - 16hrs straight home to SA & back to US. Tubing on the Ichetucknee river, explored the florida caves, 2010 was the first year i tried a Big Mac and fell inlove with it (sadly). I experienced Panama city & beach as well as Shell island. Started volunteering at the Humane Society & Animal shelter.I tried oysters for the very first time-and they were delicious with jalapeno, cheese & cajun spice.
so much more, i can't recall at the moment..
