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…

One Night in Nevada

 HENDERSON, NEVADA Something that is a bit of a hobby for my boyfriend Joseph is collecting hotel points and airline miles. I love that he does this because it means going on various ‘staycation’ around the area, and it insentivizes him to take us places locally that we wouldn’t otherwise go. For example, the Lake Tahoe trip was planned because he needed to complete a Hyatt promotion. More recently, we made several trips back-to-back out to Indio for another Hyatt challenge.…

The Death of Salton Sea

 SALTON SEA, CALIFORNIA During the summer, Joseph and I stayed at Indian Wells (near Palm Springs) for a few days. At that time, we made our way out of the hotel territory (where air conditioning and a cool pool was readily available) out to the Salton Sea that’s located near the Coachella valley. Going there, I knew nothing about the sea. But as we drove to it, there was just an eerie feeling of abandonment. It started with run-down /…

Road Trip to Lake Tahoe, Day 3 – Soda Lake

 SODA LAKE, CALIFORNIA With the start of the weekday looming just around the corner, we had to sadly depart from Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains and head back down to Southern California… with just a quick stop at Carrizo Plains and, within it, Soda Lake. You see, our trip to Lake Tahoe was supposed to be our trip to San Louis Obispo. I had already written a list of things I wanted us to do there, one of them…
