As this is the month of love a time for couples to spend time together and reconnect with each other. It is less about flowers and chocolates for me. Our wedding anniversary is coming up and I have been thinking about a quick anniversary escape destination. That won’t break the bank since I am on a journey to financial freedom. My husband is a workaholic and having children does not make it any easier to get away.…

    My experience flying Emirates

    In march when we decided to take a family vacation to the US Orlando Florida, we browsed through airlines’ websites and we initially decided to fly Emirates. The prices were too high at that time and because the Rand was really weak, too, going to Orlando, Florida the ticket prices would give anyone a heart attack New York was cheap but accommodation was expensive and accommodation in Florida was cheaper. My experience flying Emirates well hubby always uses them so it was my daughter and my first time. The staff was very welcoming all smiles, poised and well mannered. I love their uniforms really beautiful and clean. My daughter was…

    Universal Studio Resort in Florida

    This was the first USA attraction we visited upon our arrival, wow Studio Universal Resort in Florida is huge. So I decided that we must buy the park hopper in order to see the two parks in day boy did I regret that decision because by the time we have seen enough of Universal Studious we were so tired to see Universal’s Islands of Adventure. We used the complimentary shuttle from the hotel so we arrived nearly in the afternoon and the shuttle was coming back to pick us up at 18:15 so we were time pressed. We did a lot of sightseeing and less riding because the lines were…

Legoland was kind of a last minute suggestion. I really enjoyed myself, it was not as big a Disney World but we got to see a lot of the place and rode on most rides it was amazing. Legoland Florida Resort opened in 2011 and has a spectacular water park which unfortunately when we crossed over they were taking people out of the water because the was a lightening warning in the area.
