Hello! Grace here.
I hope you all had a good weekend. For those of you in England, I heard that there was quite the storm in the UK! Storm Ciara? I hope that none of you were badly affected, and she was nothing more than excuse to stay indoors and craft more!
I am seeing on the news how serious it is though, so I pray that you are all alright. This too shall pass. We get hit by quite the storms in New York. Hurricane Sandy happened within my first year there, and blimey was this little Brit shocked. Nothing to do but hunker down and wait it out. And be grateful you don’t live somewhere like Puerto Rico I suppose.
I’m REALLY trying not to rub it in. I swear! But I can’t lie to you, can I? I’m currently in Orlando, Florida. Which is a glorious change in temperature compared to New York City at the moment. Brrrr!
My lovely other half has a work conference here every February for a few days (PERKS) and guess who quickly decided that she would become a stow away every time. ME.
We came last year, same time, same place. And he took me GUESS WHERE?!
Obviously, if you don’t like Harry Potter, it’s likely not the place for you. But it is magical!! And an experience that’s worth every penny! It was honestly one of the most fun days of my life! And I highly recommend it. I turned into a 12 year old kid again, as did Mark. I was like a kid in a candy store. Except I was an adult… in a wand store.
This bloke/the Hogwarts Express train conductor was British and a personal highlight. He chatted away to us and really made me feel like I was at home. Look at his face. Bit happy 🙂
Mark has a little less time off this year. But it’s okay, because unlike last year, one of his colleagues wives has also decided to be a suitcase stow away. And we just happen to be great friends.
We are going to check out a place called Epcot today, I’m sure some of you know of it, or have even been there! There’s an attraction called “Drinking Around The World” and is the process of making your way around the World Showcase while stopping for drinks and snacks in each country.
Can you guess where I’m excited to go? YEP. Dear ol’ Blighty! Apparently there’s an English pub and a fish & chip shop!
I’ve been told NOT to start in England though, because I will apparently never want to leave and won’t get to visit France, Canada, Germany, Mexico etc.
Funny isn’t it? I’m all the way in sunny Florida, where I’m sure plenty of people would love to be. And I’m mostly interested in going to a British pub.
I’ll take lots of pictures!
Stay warm, stay safe, stay happy <3
Lotsa Love, Grace xoxo
