Fin’s Coeliac Diagnosis

It was a normal day in May 2014 and for some reason, I had grabbed the mail as I had left for work that morning, stuffed it into my bag and forgotten about it until lunchtime.

Orlando 2017 – Day 12

Day 12 - Busch Gardens Everyone had a lie in today and no one woke before 8.30 am. We left about 9.45 and arrived at Busch Gardens just before 11am.


Orlando 2017 – Day 11

Day 11 - Volcano Bay We packed up as soon as we woke at 7.30 and put all the luggage in the car and headed to the diner again for breakfast.


Orlando 2017 – Day 7

Day 7 - A mad day of park hopping! So, today was scheduled as a rest day but for various reasons, instead we decided to do a park hop to fit in some extras.


Orlando 2017 – Day 5

Day 5 - Aquatica None of us woke up until 8:45am and so didn't get to Aquatica until 10:15am but it was empty and so we parked right by the entrance.


Orlando 2017 – Day 3

Day 3 - Sea World As Sea World didn't open until 10am, we had a later start and arrived as the park opened.
