A holiday at last… Florida!
One of my biggest passions is travel and I like to get away as much as possible, but some time has passed since my last trip out of the country. It was back in February that I spent a weekend in Madeira and last November that I spent two weeks in sunny Thailand. Working and studying hard recently has meant that there has been little time for any fun in the sun.
I have been looking into returning to Florida for some time now, just to enjoy some sunshine and warm weather plus a few hours of flying, and when the opportunity came along to attend a wedding out there at the end of August, it made sense to kill all three birds with the one stone.
I am setting off on the morning of Friday 26 August, flying from Heathrow to Boston and then onwards to Orlando after a quick plane change. On the way back (Saturday 3 September), it’s direct to Paris and then onwards to Heathrow with Air France. Booking the flight was not quite as easy as expected, however. Travelling at one of the busiest times of the year, a lot of the US airlines could only offer standby seats on their domestic services on the return journey, which was definitely not an option! The ticket – at £506 return – wasn’t the best value for money but booking for the summer holiday period only 6 weeks before travelling, I wasn’t disappointed.
