Airport Apprehensions

I don't travel abroad very often but when I do every trip is unique. There is always something that causes our tempers or emotions rise.

Orlando Florida – Island of Adventures

The following day after we visited Universal Studios and Diagon Alley we went to Island of Adventures. Compared to Universal Studios, this park is a much smaller.    All of the rides and attractions were all compressed into a small space. This did have some benefits, everything was close by and easy to find. As… Continue reading Orlando Florida – Island of Adventures

Universal Studios – Diagon Alley

fter waiting and waiting, I struggled to contain my excitement as we journeyed to Diagon Ally, the brand-new Harry Potter theme park. I had heard such good things about it from friends and family that I was literally bouncing up and down in my seat with excitement.
