To ‘swipe’, or not to ‘swipe’!

Sorry, you’ll have to use Google translate for this one! I translated it already and WordPress lost it while saving (Are you certain you want to do this? And then STILL not do it! GRMBL!). Not feeling like doing it again! 🙁 (more…)

Going to Epcot!

August 17th, 2014 · Comments Off on Going to Epcot!

Miriam didn’t sleep to well this night (itch itch itch, moquitos got her  Sad smile), but we left for EPCOT with a sunny disposition.
Judging by the parking lot, it wasn’t extremely busy (yet) today. The sun was already stinging, it’ll be a warm day. But we’ve got plenty water and soda, as drinking is the main thing in this climate!

Raindrops are falling on my head!

August 16th, 2014 · Comments Off on Raindrops are falling on my head!

This morning Miriam woke up to a lot of rumbling outside. A serious thunderstorm passed over. And judging by the skies, it would last a while.
Luckily we hadn’t planned any parks, so that helps.
We’ve planned a day in Tampa, to visit the Westhore Citrus Mall, and – time permitting – the Ellenton Premium Outlet mall.
But for now: no hurry.

Houston, we have a problem!

August 15th, 2014 · Comments Off on Houston, we have a problem!

Today the calendar stated Kennedy Space Center! That is, according to the GPS, about 90 minutes drive. Al little later than planned we left home.
On our way there we got stuck in congestion on the I4, and the ETA kept creeping upward, on towards noon… Let’s summarize that as “s h i t”…! We changed the GPS settings to allow, and they are plentiful in FL, toll-roads. Suddenly we were going a lot faster towards our intended destination.

Around noon we rolled in to the KSC parking lot. The sun was burning hot, but we were ready for fun. Especially Geordi was chomping at the bit. Earlier this year he did a school project about space flight, so he’s learned a lot about it already.
First some pictures at the NASA logo. It seems a lot has changed since our last visit!

Splash!

August 14th, 2014 · 2 Comments

We were so tired yesterday, I think Miriam was asleep before her head hit the pillow! This morning we took our time as well, no hurry at all.

And since we’ve visited one of the Disney parks, we can now also use the fun-options that come with the tickets. There are several things to chose form, including the Disney waterparks.
The weather looked good, so why not go to Typhoon Lagoon! Grabbed our swimming stuff, packed the cooler and off we went. (more…)

To the Magic!

August 13th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Today it was overdue to add some magic to our vacation. In other words: time to head for Disney!
Disney World has 4 themeparks (and then 2 waterparks) and somehow we’re of the opinion that if you go to WDW, you “have” to start in the Magic Kingdom. Last night I selected a few fastpasses. The new FastPass+ system allows you to do so even before you’ve entered the park!

No title today…!

August 12th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Het verschil in tijd met Nederland begint steeds meer te wennen. Toen ik vanmorgen rond half zeven wakker werd kon ik 2 dingen doen: nog even omdraaien (wat echt heel verleidelijk was), of toch maar opstaan. We hadden om 9 uur een afspraak staan bij de Vacation Club, dus toch maar opstaan.
Omdat het er gisterenavond niet helemaal meer van was gekomen, heb ik eerst ons weblog bij gewerkt.
