Orlando – day seven

Friday. Our last full day in Florida and we had one thing on our minds: space. Well, that and the space coast. Kevin had made arrangements to rent a car and we were taking a drive out to Kennedy Space Centre, estimated to be about one hour outside of Orlando. …

Orlando – day six
