Orlando, Miami & The Keys
So, if you read my last post about Florida, you will know that the trip wasn’t quite as successful as was hoped for. Not only was the flying an absolute disaster but I didn’t get to see many of the theme parks that I wanted to and I spent much of the week suffering with man flu.
To overcome both of these disappointments, I am going back again – but this time there will be no flying and lots of theme parks – and not to mention hundreds of miles on the road, seeing Miami for the first time and returning to the Keys. As always, a slightly better standard of hire care has been booked to make the journey more comfortable!
The departure date is set for Friday 29 April and I will be visiting for eight days. I will be travelling on my own but catching up with friends whilst over there, and of course joining some of them for countless rides on Rip Ride Rock It at Universal Studios (still, in my opinion, the best rollercoaster ever).
Virgin Atlantic will be taking me to Florida this time around – direct out of Gatwick to Orlando and then returning to Heathrow via Atlanta on the return journey. At around £438 return, it was considerably less than the fare being offered by the preferred British Airways. Car Hire was purchased through Auto Europe, with Alamo to provide the vehicle.
