Swimming with Sharks, a Road Trip — Keith’s Fun Summer Recap

By Keith Kocinski 08.22.2016 blog

The summer of 2016 has to go down as one of the best summers of my entire life. It was an awesome adventure that took me around the world and to some crazy celebrations. I can’t wait to share with everyone. I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer and please comment with some of your favorite summer memories.

What is summer without a crazy road trip? My sister and I drove thousands of miles across the country together. That was just the beginning of summer! I can’t forget to mention one of the greatest highlights of the summer and quite possibly my entire life –the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Championship coming back from down 3 games to 1 to beat the former champs The Golden State Warriors.

After all the excitement in Cleveland, Demetrius Pipkin and I flew to Belize to swim with the sharks. It was paradise. Then I traveled down south to Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee to work on a few stories. Before working, I got to hang out with my Mama Michelle and go lazy river tubing in Georgia.  I also checked out Graceland and had the opportunity to spend a few days at St. Jude Medical Research Center and Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. It was a special experience spending time with some of the patients and the Volunteens. If you don’t know about St. Jude, you have to check it out. They do great things for young people fighting cancer.

Last but not least, I finished the summer spending a couple weeks in the Land Down Under (Australia). Oh yeah….they had these huge spiders in Australia! Enough said. Check out the photos in the slideshow below. It’s looking at me.

Well, that’s a wrap on one of the greatest summers in Keith’s history. We all have to grow up sometime but for me it won’t be today!
