Well I'm finally here writing my blog about Orlando...we have been so busy since arriving here it's been impossible to try and blog. So I'll make a start now while I'm sitting waiting for my laundry to finish. We arrived in Orlando 23 January - staying in the Disney Fort Wilderness campgrounds. As you can imagine this was no small campground - in fact the campground is larger than Central Park NYC. We were originally booked in to stay until the 2 February but ended up extending that by 1 day - checking out on 3 February. It was a great choice to stay here in the RV ($75 per night). Our campsite Had power, water and was sewered. The comfort station (showers and toilets) were just one minutes walk away from our site. The bathrooms ... read more

Loved warm glow from Florida visit January 19 -27. First vacation for 4 years so made the most, especially as lost job last autumn. Favourite: Discovery Cove with beautiful dolphins Hutch & Capricorn. Also, loved Manatees and Beluga Whales at SeaWorld. Sunset glow pic from Epcot , my favourite Disney park. Weather 70 deg f - much warmer than London (UK) despite bit of chill from Juno storm. ... read more

We joined in celebrating the Year of the Horse with the annual Dragon Parade in Orlando, Florida. Last year it took place on Sunday, February 9th. Actually, it was a full week after the Lunar New Year, (commonly called Chinese New Year) I think, due to commercial interests. The parade was scheduled to start at 11 am with the various contingents and dancers in colorful costumes walking along the length of Hillcrest Street near downtown Orlando. We arrived there early to get good vantage points to watch the parade and take photos. As the most popular festival in Asian/Oriental culture, Lunar New Year is celebrated internationally in Asian countries, and also in Asian communities around the world. I was told that in Florida, the Dragon Parade is the only large-scale celebration for Lunar New Year, so ... read more

This list was made up recently and it is my own personal opinion. I am certain many of the Travel Blog members on here have perhaps, seen more breathtaking views than I have. If so, please post them here. I would be very interested to know what other spectacular sights other people have seen, and would like to share with all of us. I should mention too that this list is shown in alphabetical order according to the name of the city (in capital letters) where the sight is located. For example, number 1 is not necessarily my favorite place. ALL of them are my favorites! 1. Saint Nazaire cathedral, from the Orb River in BEZIERS, France. 2. Mont Blanc and the Alps, from a street in COURMAYEUR, Italy. 3. The Arabian Sea with coconut trees ... read more

The one about quality time with (part of) the family The reason I left NC so early this year was due in part to being able to join up with some of the family for a few days at Disney World. Kristine and Lou along with Maggie and Hudson left Park City, UT for a month long whirlwind tour of the east coast for the holidays. They spent time in NJ, then Christmas with me and Tim and his family in NC, and travelled to Charleston to see Maggie’s grandparents then on to Lou’s family in Fort Lauderdale for New Years. The final leg of their trip was 3 nights at WDW. The main campground I spend time at is in Orlando, so it was a no brainer for me to meet up with them. Remember ... read more

#15 - Memorable moment We will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary on November 4th 2015. An early Christmas gift from my husband; he decided that because we never had a honeymoon, this would be the honeymoon trip. I am extremely excited to spend a few days with my husband exploring these two beautiful cities. Although 2015 has not hit, we've started our travel blog that will capture all of our family adventures to share with our families and friends. Please enjoy as we explore this beautiful world.

After all the crazy travelling, the constant moving from place to place and dragging our suitcases behind us we have had 2 weeks of permanent down-time in sunny Orlando. It's 1123 miles from Austin to Orlando and we had a fairly peaceful and uneventful flight. Graham was still smiling from his brief meeting with Lewis Hamilton and we arrived late and sleepy at our hotel. We have really enjoyed it here in Florida and have had a lot of fun. It's been nice not to have had to consider updating the blog for a while as we knew we were going to summarise our time here and talk about the places we've been as opposed to create a daily log of our adventures so as a change to our normal programming we are going to finish ... read more

The next morning we were able to sleep in and decided to drive to the studios rather than take the buses again. Our first fast pass was at Star Tours. I wondered if the boys would like this as each of them had found things that surprised me to scare them (Pirate makeover, disney characters, tiki birds). With Emry's head barely scraping the height restriction, we all enjoyed the ride! Then we came out and decided to take them to Muppets 3D, something our whole family used to love. G really does not like shows until about halfway through, then he either loves them or hates them. Fortunately, he loved this one. When we came out, it was pouring, pouring rain. The whole exit ramp was packed with people and when it seemed like we would ... read more
