When we heard Universal Orlando had created a Wizarding World of Harry Potter that basically let us muggles walk in Harry’s footsteps and truly step out of our mundane world into his – we had to see it! This was our main motivation for heading down to Orlando. Then since we would be down there how can we not pop over to Disney World and complete our regressive journey from adult to child in the space of a week by visiting these two world famous theme parks.
The happiest place on earth – Walt Disney World! Let’s face it this vast utopia was designed with children in mind. But that didn’t stop us, two 30-something-year-old, childless adults taking ourselves off to Disney World, Orlando for four jam-packed days of unsupervised shenanigans.
We spent the week hunting down characters, drinking from sippy cups, dancing down Main Street, taking loads of selfies, eating Mickey Mouse shaped waffles for breakfast, skipping lunch, reliving childhood memories, going on roller coasters, dodging millions of strollers and countless stray toddlers, getting sunburnt, waking up at sunrise, only to go to bed well after midnight yet still not quite getting around to seeing everything, watching fireworks, parades and children and adults alike fall in love with the magic of Disney.

Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, is recognised as having some of the best beaches in the world. With that kind of accolade, you quickly conjure up images of paradise. Images of powder soft sand greeting your toes as you walk along the endless stretches of pristine beach, lined with palm trees and the crystal clear Caribbean ocean lapping the shore. In reality, it did not disappoint, here are a few snaps from our week in paradise – Punta Cana.
