HI Guys, Sorry I have not updated this for a while but here goes.
After taking a flight from Miami of which lasted all of 53 mins I landed in Orlando, my hotel was situated in Universal Drive and just a short walk from Universal Studios and Wet 'n' Wilde. All tickets for the Theme Parks are around $80 which is quite expensive when your travelling so I found out that if I pretend that im interested in buying an Orlando Time Share apt I can get a two day ticket for $20 and also free transport. Anyway two hours later I arrived at Universal Studios and like a big kid I enjoyed every minute of it. I put full use to the second day pass by visiting the NASCAR sports bar in Universal City Walk to watch the World Cup match. I watched the match with a guy from Birmingham and a couple from the US. They where all really nice people and the couple from the US bought me a few drinks.
Anyway after two days in Orlando I decided to travel on the Amtrak train to Daytona Beach only to be told that the train does not go all the way to Daytona but to a place called DeLand, I would then have to get the Amtrak shuttle to Daytona which will take a good hour. I arrived at DeLand station which looked like something from a film and was greeted by Sea Sick Steve my taxi driver. Sea Sick Steve, aka (Jim) proceeded to tell me a whole hours worth of stories related to Armadillos, not sure why.
So im now in Daytona Beach which is Ok, the beach is beautiful and goes on for miles and miles so I have been bathing for two days to try and get a bit of a Florida tan. I have seen some Jelly Fish on the beach and also a Frog of which took up residence in my Bathroom this morning. Don’t worry big strapping maintenance man removed it for me.
Anyway I leave Daytona tomorrow morning and fly to Dallas, Texas to start making my way over to the West Coast. I might even sign myself up for a Rodeo. YeeHaw!!!
