Beach and Futbol!!

It was our 8th yr wedding Anniversary week!!! yes I know time flies specially when you marry your true love. Enough of that lol I can go on and on writing on this awesome husband of mine lol. We decided to take a quick trip to Orlando, Florida. 1.Futbol, 2.Anniversary Week 3.In need of a Vacay.

The Houston Dynamo  @Orlando FC has always been on my bucketlist and what a way to celebrate with a beautiful away game!!! The game was delayed for about 15min due to lightning in the area. Which allowed us to get in our seats on time!! The sky was purple as to advising the visitors it was going to be a good fight for the win. It was a bit eerie but beautiful. The game ended in a 0-0.

The Camping World Stadium (previously known as Citrus Bowl) is not the permanent stadium for Orlando FC so many of the amenities other stadiums have seem pretty basic. Food is mostly regular stadium food. Maybe BBVA Compass has me spoiled with the many choices of food lol. For beer I only had Three options BBVA Compass Stadium has many options including craft beer. Now lets talk about the energy!!! It was as expected. The stadium was not at capacity as it usually is but it didn't seem to make a difference.

The staff at the stadium was very friendly. Accessibility to the players both home and away was great I was able to take pictures with some of my favorite rivals lol.  Only bummer was not seeing Kaka play or meeting him.

Since we where in Florida going to the beach was a must for us. We where excited to take our little Zoe. We told her we had a surprise for her wich she kept trying to guess all through the ride there. We ended in Cocoa Beach!! We stayed there all day Saturday.

She was so excited she didn't want our trip to end!!! Trust me we had the same feelings lol but it was an unplanned trip so we couldn't stay much longer. We headed back home on Sunday. Sunday was also the day of the Euro Final (Portugal vs France) and of course being a Futbol loving family we had to find a way!!!! Don't worry the driver (me) had their eyes on the road the whole time!!! I can visualize the play just by hearing!!

It was awesome roadtrip. I'm hopeful that we are able to Visit more stadiums in the future!! Do you have a stadium you would like to visit?

Did you know boarding a bicycle on a Houston metro bus and Metro Rail is acceptable and encouraged?!!!

I had the opportunity to join Metro on a ridescapade and visit The Bicycle Museum. We where greeted by Ms.Joy, she gave us a brief tour of the Museum and shared her knowledge of bicycles with us. The Houston Bicycle Museum has antique bicycles and memorabilia. Hours of operation for The Houston Bicycle Museum are: Tuesday-Wed 10am-5pm Thur-Fri 10am-7pm  Sat 10am-6pm Sun1pm-6pm Mondays are Closed. They also offer free entrance on Thursdays from 3-7pm.
Heres a link for more info.:Houston Bicycle Museum


We couldn't  just drive there on a beautiful day!!! Houston BCycle provided some really comfortable bicycles for our trip. It was my first time checking out one of these bikes. It was really easy all you need to do is insert your credit or debit card and follow the options from the kiosk  select your bike y listo!! Houston Bcycle is expanding through out the city they are in the works of setting up 71 station locations and you can have a say by imputing suggestions to

BCycle station next to Metrorail

I love how Houston Metro is working with other companies such as  Houston BCycle to provide Houston residents with more transportation options that help the environment, encourages a Healthier lifestyle and more routes to get to work. 

One of my goals for this year is to use Metro bus and Metro Rail and explore this beautiful City of Houston,Tx. One way that I have already started enjoying the accessibility of the Metro rail is by Using Houston Dynamo season ticket pass for FREE ride to BBVA Compass stadium on Game day. It is also free for single game day tickets.Metro rail has a stop right on the steps of BBVA.
