Where I’ve been, What I Did and What I’ve Read! Danny’s Vacation Update

Posted 16 December, 2014 by Danny in Blog, Danny / 16 Comments

I’m back!!

Some of you might have realized that’s been some slow 3 weeks, right? Well, I was on my annual vacation trip and decided to also go a little offline to relax and recharge and .. READ!

Where I’ve been & What I Did

It’s been an amazing 3 weeks trip and I’ve seen quite a few places, we started in

  • Munich (home) with my car to Prague
  • Prague – London, where we’ve stayed a night and we had some amazing Fish & Chips!

  • London via Miami to Orlando – there we stayed 2 days and went to the Universal Studios and more importantly in Hogwarts, Hogsmead and Diagon Alley!
  • Orlando with a car to Bonita Springs – Here we meet up with my parents and did a trip in the Everglades which was awesome and also visited the World Championship in Sand Sculpting!

  • Bonita Springs with a Car to Tampa and fly via Miami to St. Thomas (Virgin Islands). Here we spend a whole week on one of the most beautiful beaches and it’s been insanely relaxing and awesome, with lots of sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and reading!!

  • St. Thomas via Puerto Rico to St. Kitts. Here we spend 5 days and some more sunbathing and reading!

And… sadly I have no pictures from St.Kitts but.. it’s also not been as amazing as St. Thomas and not has such beautiful beaches, but then again – I could get some time to relax and some more reading done! 

Then our trip home was quite insane – but Hubs and me wanted to keep our Frequent Flyer Status with OneWorld so we added a few legs – and yes, it was quite the trip!

  • St .Kitts  via Nevis (5 minutes flight!! that was awesome) to St. Marteen (here we needed to spend the night) – then from St. Marteen via Miami to Tampa (here we spend another night and some outlet christmas shopping woot). Next Day we went from Tampa via Miami via New York via London (yes that is insane!) to Prague where we left our car and drop home to Munich!

 What I’ve Read

and… then of course with all the sunbathing, relaxing and flying I also managed to read a lot which was quite amazing! Thankfully, all the books I picked for my vacation reading were absolutely amazing!

In total I read 9 Books, it’s been more on previous trips but that’s still pretty Ok I’d say!

Maybe Someday I'll Meet You There Wicked Polaris Ignite
Finding Mr. Brightside Burying Water Boomerang Inherit Midnight

  1. Wow, sounds like you guys did take an amazing vacation, but oh my goodness so many flights and layovers! I’d be massively worried all the time about my luggage getting missplaced at some point! 😉

    I soooo want to go to Universal studios ONLY to visit Wizarding World!!

    Seriously, Harry Potter was freaking amazing! It really feels like you are in the movie or in the book and it’s so worth going there.

    and haha, yes – I was also worried – but everything was working nicely and we had no delays either!

  3. Gotta love Flo’s brilliant airline-deal finding ways.

    Sounds like you had a fabulous trip and it’s very sad we weren’t able to meet up in London!

    My parents are in Orlando right now and planning to go to Harry Potter on Thursday. I’m jealous. I haven’t seen it since they expanded.

    I still can’t believe we were in London at the same time and then couldn’t meet up! You really need to revisit the park to see Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts Express, the outdid themselves with this ! I think they are planing to also build the Ministry of Magic and I can’t wait for it to come!

    Next time we should meet up there – would be fun to visit with another HP Lover:)

  4. Look how cute you are!

    Don’t you just love London? I’ve been several times, and loved it, loved it! It’s a blast there. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Now I want to go to St. Thomas and drool around a bit!

    St. Thomas was beautiful and sadly I didn’t have enough time in London to completely explore it – but I really need to get back, it feels like a city I could deeply love:)
