Orlando – day eight

Saturday, travel day.  Leaving this behind. Our trip from Orlando to Vancouver was anything but direct. Nope, we were leaving MCO and heading north to Ottawa, from Ottawa to Toronto and only then from Toronto back home to Vancouver.  I love traveling. I mean that in the sense of exploring …

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

Finally, a little freedom! Day six was our first without any obligations or expectations and we were excited to get it and explore! We woke up early (for a vacation day) and we skipped a morning swim because our cab driving friend from yesterday (I’ll tell you his name. It’s …

Orlando – day five

Approaching 1am on Wednesday morning, I was sipping rehydrated clear noodle soup because I hadn’t eaten dinner at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Approaching 7am, my wake-up call for the final day of the conference, I was a new level of tired. I thought I was exhausted on Tuesday …

Orlando – day three

Orlando Рday two 

Who comes to THE SUNSHINE STATE and doesn’t pack SUNGLASSES?  In asking, I don’t think I really need to answer, right? Yeah, it was me.  So, we spent our first Orlando daylight hour hunting down a new pair. Fortunately, it wasn’t so challenging and we’d slept so late that at …

Orlando – day one
