A Day in LA

Posted on: Wednesday, July 15th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Our flight to Auckland was not until 10:30pm, so we had some time to spare in the money.  We started off by taking a taxi to Venice Beach, where we first headed South along the walkway before the shops got further apart and the area got more dodgy (if that’s possible – there were regular “medicinal […]

Sea World to Finish

Posted on: Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

On our last day in Orlando we visited Sea World.  We arrived before it opened, which gave us a chance to exchange our voucher for the tickets – just as well, because there was a bit of a hiccup and it took them a while to verify the voucher.  We decided against the Quick Queue […]

Venturing into Orlando

Posted on: Monday, July 13th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

On day two of our Universal Studios pass we were going to go to the park in the morning and at night, but explore further during the day.  We woke a little later than planned, so we skipped the parks and went straight to Florida Mall.  Our main goal was to visit Michael’s (a big […]

Universal Studios and Harry Potter World

Posted on: Sunday, July 12th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

With two days booked in Universal Studios we planned to spend the first day at Harry Potter World and then visit any other attractions that catch our interest the rest of the time.  Since we had woken early on July 12 (around 3:30am, probably due to being on European time still), we got ready and […]

Another Long Day

Posted on: Saturday, July 11th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

With our early flight on July 11, we were to be picked up at 2:55am from our apartment. I didn’t bother going to sleep, but DW and DD had a few winks. Getting prepared around 2am, I headed downstairs at 2:30am to put some rubbish out and found our driver waiting (he hadn’t been there […]

Flowers to finish in Rome

Posted on: Friday, July 10th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

July 10 was supposed to be the hop on/off bus in the morning, followed by our Imperial Rome tour in the afternoon. The plan was to walk to Campo di Fiori  (about 15 minutes), do some shopping, return to the apartment to drop off items, then take the bus around Rome until our tour. With […]

A Night Off

Posted on: Thursday, July 9th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

This morning (9 July) we left early (8am) in order to have time to get to the Vatican Museums entrance (about 20 minutes walk) and have breakfast on the way. We grabbed some rolls and drinks from a shop across the road from the Vatican and sat on the steps (our meeting point) to eat […]

Dem bones

Posted on: Wednesday, July 8th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Today started with a short walk to Castel Saint Angelo, where we made our way through the museum/castle to the top and then stopped in the cafe (4th floor, out of five) on the way down for breakfast. There were more great views of Rome from the top and I think it was worth the […]

A different world

Posted on: Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

On 7th July we had breakfast where we were staying (since it was included) and lazed a bit before checking out at 9:30am. The train station was a short walk away, where we then had to wait an hour or so for our train. It was a little confusing because we were on Italo rather […]

A disconcerting climb

Posted on: Monday, July 6th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Today was our trip to Pisa – when we arrived yesterday we had been given a fax sent by the tour company advising us to be at the meeting point at 8:10am instead of 9am. Fortunately this was only a few minutes up the road (on the way to the train station). We had breakfast […]
