Photos from week five: Orlando and Miami Beach

Orlando and Miami Beach, USA
July, 2011

The Magic Kingdom

Week five saw us heading south to Florida. We started in Orlando which was actually kind of a horrible place. We were staying downtown and it turned out that our hotel was right on the border between the okay part of town and the very very bad part of town where scary people shouted at us and followed us down the street. We escaped to the Magic Kingdom for a day getting thoroughly disneyed. The next day my contiki buddy Jeff was kind enough to drive us out to the Kennedy Space Center, which was wonderful (Disney world for nerds). After bidding Orlando goodbye we trained it down to Miami Beach for a bit of relaxation on the beach.

    Beautiful photos. I was just at Disney World like 2 weeks ago to celebrate my little sister’s birthday. It was so tired but we all had a blast. Hows your trip so far? Did you miss me? haha
