Without a doubt, it’s good to have friends and a network. I’m tickled to be part of the newly formed Central Florida Chapter of Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) and hope to learn and kick this blog up a few notches.

Kudos to Ben Reed (Adventures with Ben) for forming the chapter and taking the lead not only for travel blogging in Central Florida but the whole Sunshine State.

I couldn’t attend the inaugural meeting (I was actually hosting members of the media that weekend) but Ben included me (and anyone else who couldn’t attend) in some format. Can’t wait for the first Central Florida TBEX meeting I can attend and meet these folks in person.

Go ahead and meet these Florida-based travel bloggers listed below. I’ve also added them to the right-hand column of this blog under “Friends of Solo Travel Girl.” Seriously, you’ll wanna hit the road and travel after reading just one.

Getting Social With NASA Changed My Life

I’ll never forget my first time. The ground shook beneath my feet. A roar rumbled in my gut. Goosebumps tingled over my skin. I stood in awe watching rockets push away from the launchpad and skyrocket into the sky. The year was 2011 and I witnessed the final launch of space shuttle Endeavour and the second-to-last space shuttle launch before the National Aeronautics and Space Administration ended the program.
