Boat Tour Around the Lakes of Winter Park

For some odd reason, there seems to be quite a few cities in the state of Florida that has ‘Winter’ included in the name. This somewhat boggles my mind, as Florida is well known for its hot weather and high humidity. One of the cities that I visited during my time in Florida was Winter Park, which is where many locals would go to shop (the tourists would probably shop at the amazing outlet malls in Orlando). At this time,…

Visiting Kennedy Space Center

During my first week and a half in Florida, Joseph and I stayed at his mom’s house in Merritt Island. It takes about forty minutes to drive to Orlando, Florida and about twenty minutes to get to Kennedy Space Center. It only made sense to also visit KSC on a casual day! Did you know that Kennedy Space Center has a visitor’s area? It’s more of a theme park, too, and it’s actually pretty big! The nice about visiting during…

The Nature of Florida

Being from the West Coast of the United States, I am used to the views of deserts, oceans, and mountains. The weather in the West Coast is also known to be warm and dry. Florida only has one of those three landscapes features and the weather is totally different, haha. Read on the see what to expect in regards to the nature of Florida. The Weather: The first thing that’s prominent about Florida is the weather. It is humid and…

The Perks of Solo-ing a Theme Park

ORLANDO, FLORIDA I am an introvert. As an introvert, I enjoy spending time by myself as much as I like spending time with others. I have no problem dining at a restaurant at a table for one, walking around the mall by myself, and traveling by myself. You get the idea. But going to a theme park by yourself.. is that really a fun thing? In the case of Harry Potter World, I would have to say no. It was…

Where Are the Gators?

My boyfriend Joseph is from Merritt Island, Florida. When he tells me tales of his homeland, he would tell me that alligators are virtually everywhere. And yet, when I visited, I hardly ever saw any. They tell me it was because we came in the wintertime when the gators are underwater because there is no sun, but I was determined to see some! So his mom and I ventured off and took a 30 minute airboat tour by Twister Airboat Rides located in…

Harry Potter World Haul

When a fangirl goes into the world of their favorite book series (Harry Potter), it’s no surprise that she comes out with a few goodies. I wanted to honestly buy everything in the whole park of The World of Harry Potter. However, since I was going to be in Florida for a whole two weeks and with the holidays just around the corner, buying everything just couldn’t be done. I do try to travel light, and I am trying not…

9 Degrees in Florida?!?

In Florida, one thing that is super fickle is the weather. For the whole day, the weather would be gray and overcast, and you’d think it’ll be a cold and rainy day. In fact, the temperature is warm and the rain pours for fifteen minutes, and over the next. When we went to Epcot, it was predicted that there would be rain. When we went to Harry Potter World, it was also predicted it would rain. Neither really happened. But…

A Fangirl in Harry Potter World

ORLANDO, FLORIDA For years, I have been dreaming of going to the Harry Potter World in Orlando, Florida. Harry Potter, the series of books that were such an integral part of my growing childhood, that ultimately got me interested in reading, that had me captivated for years as J.K. Rowling released each book. I grew up with the characters and I loved them as if they were real. Dammit, they are real! You can imagine my sadness when the Harry Potter World in Orlando,…

GLOBETROTTING VIA EPCOT

ORLANDO, FLORIDA I’ve always heard about Disney’s theme park Epcot to be fun, but I’ve never actually looked into what exactly is in Epcot (just like no one has ever told me that Disney’s Animal Kingdom is actually a zoo!). All I’ve known about this particular park is that there is a ginormous golf ball that everyone takes a picture with. That’s all. What I’ve learned is that Epcot is divided into two parts: the entrance part is dedicated towards…

FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF FLORIDA

 MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been in Florida, more specifically in Merritt Island and Orlando, this past week or so. (If not, well… there was a shameless plug!). My boyfriend and I came here to spend Thanksgiving with his family, and he left after one week, abandoning me with his sweet family while I stay another week. We have had such a blast this past week though, which I shall write in…
