Florida






 I am suffering a bit from the holiday blues especially as January and February can be rather dull. So I thought I'd write something on here for some nostalgia. We went to Florida for just under seven days at the end of January for my partner's (as seen above ^) birthday and I have got to say it was one of the best holidays I have ever had. I was a wide eyed excitable child the entire time and even the fact I had a pretty bad case of tonsillitis it did not get me down. Universal was unbelievable it was like nothing I had ever seen before. If I was to pick a highlight from that day it had to be the mini 'Springfield' they had created, having food in 'The Krusty Burger' was awesome. Aswell as the 'Transformers' ride as I completely geeked out when a giant 'Megatron' gave me a little wave. (I know your all probably thinking how old is this girl? I am sorry but I am afraid it gets worse.) Disney world was fantastic seeing the castle made my dreams come true although I can not say I wasn't disappointed that you could not go inside it. Dragging my boyfriend onto 'The Little Mermaid ride was also something to remember and by the end of the day he was probably shouting "You don't need anymore Minnie Mouse Merchandise!" Inside his head. We attempted to drive to Miami on the final day which was a little silly as we did not realise it was four hours there and four hours back. We gave it a good go and the weather was gorgeous but we didn't really get to see much due to awful traffic. I am proud of him for taking driving on the other side of the road with just a 'John Cleese' voice on the Sat Nav to help in his stride, I just think we was pretty happy with the car he got to choose. I found people in Florida a lot more happy to see us than in New York that might just be the magic of Disney though?  We did enjoy the freedom and security of a car apart from the day we lost if for around an hour and a half! The food was delicious although the day we got back I was over the moon to have broccoli! I would recommend going in January/early Febuary as ques were minimal but the weather could be unpredictable. I would happily go again and again!

Have you been? If so I'd love to know your highlights? Ox
