Guess who’s back! Yep, me! :D I had a blast and a half in the States. SUCH an amazing vacation; I feel so blessed to have been able to get that time off and away and afford what we did. It started in DC as we sat at the national mall watching the fireworks, moved to Charlottesville for two days and then back to DC for a couple of days of walking around, visiting the Smithsonian museums and chilling in Georgetown. Was great to catch up with mine and talk and romance and steal little kisses here and there. PDA is so lost in a third-world country like my own! We then went to NYC for one night only to go clubbing at Cielo in the meat-packing district. I’d forgotten how much fun that could be – and also how expensive!! With aching feet and a woozy head we drove to Jim Thorpe and spent a day at Pocono Whitewater where we indulged in a “Big Adventure Day” – some 25 miles of biking, 2 miles of hiking and 8 miles of rafting. Amazing! I felt so alive and so impressed with my stamina!! Having checked that off our list of things to do, adventure, we went back to the Big Apple to absorb some more of the sights and sounds. DC & NYC are things I’ve done many times before but wanted to share them with M. He’d lived in DC and wanted to revisit with me. It was nice and somewhat intimate as I took him around NYC and saw his eyes fill with wonder at the big flashing lights in Times Square, a stone’s throw from our hotel. Two days in the city and we were ready to make our way to Orlando, again M had visited as a child, but Disney has been on my bucket list since I was 5. I’m so glad he was there when I finally did it! In six days we swam with dolphins, snorkelled, went to Seaworld and their water park, Aquatica, went to Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure and of course visited all the four Disney World parks x) BEST TIME OF MY LIFE! We ended by heading back up to the Poconos to attend my cousin’s wedding where I was a bridesmaid (also something I always wanted to be!)
I’m so grateful to M for taking me and showing me such a good time! I’ve never been happier!
