Last magical post 

Hey! 

So yesterday was our last full day in Florida, and we obvs had to spend it in Disney.


We redid some of our fav rides; splash mountain, space mountain, the dwarves and soarin’. 


And we also did some that we didn’t get a chance to last time; like finding Nemo! 

We also strolled round  Tom Sawyer’s island via boat, because Disney love a good boat! Weird seeing the “places” from a story I used to read all the time when I was a kid. 


Of course I also spent some more money in the gift shop, finally got my ears that I am currently wearing for 24 hours as per my hit list challenge. (Speaking of there’s an updated version at the end of this post.) 

I also got my shot glass for this part of the trip and a cute frame for my Ariel photo so I can remember it even when I’m old and wrinkly! 

We finished or time at Disney by watching the fireworks at Epcot. ✨ 🎉Which was the perfect ending to a perfect week! 

So the rollercoaster pigtails have left me and I’m wearing jeans because there’s like a twenty degree temperature drop between Florida and Washington. 

Anyways we’re on the bus to Washington now! Just a nice 18 hour journey to read and not be able to sleep on. 
Here’s the updated hit list:

* Talk to an American in an American accent – see Houston hitlist update. I’m pretty fluent in the valley girl accent. 

* Walk down the Vegas stripe – tick ✔️✔️

* Buy a Disney snow globe -not done yet as the one I wanted was huge and difficult to get home in a rucksack, but Disney ship so will be buying once I hit English soil! 

* Wear Minnie Mouse ears for 24 hours 🐭 – currently a few hours into this now 

* The Statue of Liberty 🗽

* Eat American smores (we made our own on list year’s camping adventure) – we have had pop tarts in smores flavour but are keeping our eyes open for the real deal

* Eat the state food in each state we stay – so far we’ve managed this! 

* Ride a horse 🐎 – done! (Sort of we rode a carousel horse, so it was a horse but I won’t tick it on my year’s hit list.) 

* Line dancing 👯 – danced round a courtyard in a Texan way so this is totally done. 

* Eat cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory

* Have pie and coffee in a dinner (full disclosure I do not drink coffee so this will be pie, a sip of coffee then a gallon of tea) ☕️ – apparently if you add salt to coffee it takes the bitter taste away so might try this with actual coffee

* Roller skate around Somewhere – still on the lookout for a place to skate  

* Bet in Vegas – I’ve officially placed a bet

* Mardi Gras in New Orleans – SO COOL!!!! (See the Nola post for all the deets.)

* Supersize a macdonalds 🍟🍔 (me and V will be sharing this) 

* Spend an afternoon in Barnes and a noble

* Watch a show – we went and saw Cirque Du Soleil while in Florida so this one can officially be crossed off. 

* Photo at the Vegas sign – we didn’t make it out to the one on the strip because it was roasting hot. But we did do it at the downtown sign in Fremont.

* Empire state building 

* People watch in Grand Central
