About the Post

Author Information

My name is Scott and I like to travel. There I said it, wow that does feel better. There is probably a program for my affliction somewhere. I am what I would consider a Normal Guy. I am a native Arizonan, sometimes we are called “Zonies”. I am in my mid 40′s and enjoy a great life. I am self employed and have a wonderful daughter and Partner. Although I would say my life is a fairly normal one, I am also quite lucky in that I have the ability to travel and enjoy the world, I enjoy learning about other cultures and experiencing the world around us. I want to be right upfront about the type of travel I enjoy and the type I don’t. You will probably not ever read a story of about me backpacking my way through the serengeti during the height of summer, nor will you probably read any stories of me sleeping in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton in Paris. I am not a budget traveler, nor am I an uber luxury traveler, I fall somewhere in the middle, where most people fall I believe. I started this blog for the sole purpose of sharing my stories, my views and my excitement for traveling around this world with my friends, family. However it doesn’t stop there for me, I also wanted to make friends with others around the world, those who travel and those who dream of travel. Blogs and Websites evolve over time, mine will no doubt expand over time as well please come back and see what has taken place. However if you have come to my blog to schedule a flight or a hotel, this is not the place.

Phoenix Zoolights

I don’t know about you, but I get so busy during the hustle and bustle of the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Holiday’s that I sometimes feel like I’ve missed about 60 days of my life.  So what do you do to slow down during this time?  

This year I attended the Phoenix Zoo Lights event that is held every year at the Phoenix Zoo.  The Phoenix Zoo Lights event is considered to be one of the top 5 Zoo Lights in the United States.  Don’t know what Zoo Lights are?  Well your in for a treat, especially if you live in Phoenix or it’s surrounding cities.  Every year the Wildlife of the Zoo gives way to Wild Lights of the Zoo.  Essentially the Zoo is completely decked out with bright, festive christmas lights, music, animatronic animals, lighted animals that move, food, drink and a tremendous crowd.  More than 3.5 million lights and 600 light sculptures of animals.  But it is something that shouldn’t be missed, it’s a wonderful event for children.  And you still have time, The Phoenix Zoo Lights will conclude this year’s run on January 8th, 2012.  Nightly from 6 p.m to 10 p.m.

Enjoy the 24 foot diameter lighted sphere floating on the lake, visit Stingray Bay and pet a stingray.  I love to walk through the Music in Motion dancing tree show, absolutely beautiful and fun to walk through.  Oh yeah, and if your into it how about a Camel Ride, yeah you can do that too.  Or maybe the Polar Side is more to your liking.

It’s a great way to slow down and really appreciate the beauty of the holiday season.  Now if you miss it this year, don’t fear it will be back next year, but definitely make your way there to experience The Phoenix Zoo Lights.


Happy Travels
