Sunday is fast approaching. What is the significance of Sunday I hear you cry?
Well, that is the day that me and my family board a jet plane bound for sunnier climes to the state of Florida. 2 weeks of running around like idiots chasing fictional characters for their signatures, riding thrill rides and eating more food than is conceiveably possible - CANNOT WAIT!
This will be my third time to Orlando, the first when I was a mere bairn at the tender age of 22; it was the culmination of a 4 month working vacation after I finished my degree. Back then I visited the place on my own and did as much as I could in the 4 days I had there. The last time I went was 2 years ago with my then 6 year old son. It was wonderful watching his face as he ran around everywhere. Say what you will about Disney and other parks in Orlando, either love 'em or hate 'em, there is no denying it is a magical place for kids. This year my son is 8, and a little taller than he was two years ago so I am hoping that he will be big enough to come with me on some of the bigger thrill rides, the only one he could do last time was the Everest Expedition ride in Animal Kingdom - he loved it so much we went on it 3 times in total in one day! I hope to be able to introduce him to Manta at Sea World, The Hulk in Islands of Adventure and a few others that I can't actually recall at the moment.
So, in short... see you soon suckers!
