I have been looking forward to going to Florida all year long! My mom planned this trip for my family and I to go on after my twin brother and I were done with our first year of college. I was in serious need to some relaxation, tanning, and hot weather. I spent most of my year in Boulder, Co at University of Colorado and it was an awful winter. I am not a fan of cold or snow at all. I actually think I get a little seasonal depression in the winter time. I am a summer girl at heart. Anyways, I will share with you a few of the fun things I did while in Florida!
Universal Studios in Orlando!
Harry Potter world: You must put this place on your bucket list guys! It was so cool! The main ride inside the castle blew my mind!
Seuss Landing: I love little kid rides they make me feel happy inside!
We also went on the Hulk (a huge amazing roller coaster), the roller coaster in Harry Potter world ( I got stuck on it for 10 minutes…yikes!), The Despicable me ride, the Mummy ride, a water ride, and I also got a Henna tattoo. I wanted to ride the new transformers ride but it does not open till June 20th…but I was able to get a picture with Bumblebee! Word to the wise: Do not wear flip flops! My feet were killing me. Sandals would be the best! Also I was able to bring my own food into the park! I packed a nice healthy lunch and brought fresh veggies, fruits, and of course a quest bar. It surprised me that they sold fresh fruit at there snack stands! I was one tired but happy girl after this day!
I live for the beach. I absolutely love the beach. I was able to run on the beach almost every morning. I would run then go eat breakfast then go tan the rest of the day! Beach running was harder than I though it would be! We also went to the beach for almost every sunset!
The Tampa Zoo
I love animals so I was so excited to go to the Zoo. Unfortunately, it was a very hot day so a lot of the animals were hiding under shaded ares so I could not see them very well. But it was still a good time!
Tarpon Springs is a little greek town on the water. It is like a China town but Greek. They are famous for having have old fashioned sponge divers and boat tours. There were tons of little shops to explore. We also went to a Greek restaurant and I got a yummy chicken dinner (a challenge for me)!
Well thats about all the excitement I have to share with you guys. It was a much needed trip ,but I was also eager to get home and spend time with my friends! I also really missed my mountains and kitties! Being in other places I realize how blessed I am to live in the place I do. I need to not take that for granted! I went on a beautiful hike the day after I got back!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of fun and relaxation. I am trying to worry less and just enjoy the moment. You guys should to!
