Well I dont know what all this 'backpacking' lark is about!
We are currently in Ybor city (Pronounced E bore), in tampa florida. The hotel is very plush, free internet huzzah.
Yesterday we went to wet n wild (which is a water park), and had a great time. I was s***ting it all the time but luckily eddie n scotty were on hand for moral support. There were some super scary slides we went down. Some of the drops were nearly vertical I swear! I was screaming and swearing everytime (Usually consisting of s***, s***, s***, s*** s*** s*** SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT, excuse the french ha ha) I got quite fed up of people pointing and ughing at my deformed heatstroke back, I caught quite a few people doing it! One mum said I should go round to all the others to scare the children into putting on suncream! In the evening we found out we werent near any bars or owt so we went to a local arcade and spent some money to win some tat. For $10 worth of tokens I won a mouse mat, key ring, and best of all, a scarface sticker.
We were planning on going to daytona beach but first news report when we turned the tele on (literally) was somebody saying "dont go to daytona beach" due to the HURRICANE. As a result we have had to head west to dodge it, but it is pretty bad by all accounts. We are in tampa, which is a bit of a hell hole to be honest. We have had to stay in this fancy hotel as there was nowhere else! Tomorrow we are going to Busch gardens (A theme park), then heading off to fort myers I think, but we shall see.
I will post as soon as I can, but I imagine my ticker will give up on one of those rollercoasters tomorrow.
