So as I may have mentioned we have had an EPIC adventure to Florida planned....
It has felt like a long time coming but for us our trip couldn't have come any quicker....
And today was the day.... The day we set off on our EPIC Florida adventure.
So today came after the day after the night before, in which we may have been slightly drunk whilst wishing a very new, but dear, friend and soon to be wife all the best in their new Aussie Life. We had actually put off our flights to be there and I am so pleased we did. What a night but that's a different story so... Anyway....
Today was an early start but not as early as it could've been as we travelled up to Gatwick last night in order to miss the disastrously timed hurricane that was hitting the UK. You know the one that was hitting the exact same day we had planned to fly of on our big adventure.... How rude of it to mess us about like that.... Stupid hurricane. We decided we'd avoid the stress of messing around in traffic and missing our flight and be prepared.... And around the corner.... For any eventuality.
Waking up was hard, we had a wriggly baby in our bed and both were sleep deprived from drinking the night before, but we made it up and dressed and ready.
We drove the tiny distance to the long stay parking that we had booked and shuttled it across to our terminal. Simples
Storms have caused Delays to flights and public transport....
We'd expected a delay, of epic proportions I might add, so we'd prepared and packed for such events but actually considering we had been hit by a storm of similar proportions, we had only a 15 minute delay and we hardly noticed it.
I'm really looking forward to a long flight with an 11yr old flying enthusiast and a 16mth old tornado of terror... Said nobody EVER
9 1/2 hours later...
A longer than usual flight from London to orlando, due to avoiding said
so so so easy and stress free. Angels I tell thee.
6pm Orlando time, 10pm UK time.
Kyd has been awake since 7am UK time, it is now 11pm orlando time.... 3am UK time.... He has just crashed.
We had to get the bags, then the hire car, get to the office where the keys to the villa were, drive to the villa, drop the bags off, go to Walmart to get Rocky some milk and bits, eat a much needed Subway whilst paying (because they have subways in Walmart... As you do) annnnd then drive back to the villa and collapse... Which we have successfully done.
Tomorrow we start the adventure properly... Seaworld here we come!!!!!!
