My First Visit To America – Theme Parks

As a kid you grow up in a world of animated cartoons, movies and television so it seemed fitting to end my visit to America surrounded by theme parks dedicated to just that. Back in the day I’d love watching the Flintstones on a saturday morning, now its all about Minions and Harry Potter with just a splash of the old remixed for the new generation of youngsters. Orlando is […]


My First Visit To America – Space Coast

My visit to America so far has seen me sample the high life in Miami, air boat my way around the Everglades, soak up the sun in some very Beachy destinations and now it was going to Space.

The […]

There is a lot to say about my visit to America but it’s always best to start at the beginning. So here I am having arrived in Miami flying first class with Virgin Atlantic and heading to South Beach in Miami riding on the wheels of a sweet sweet Mustang. Passing street signs, roads and shops all with that typical American look to them was a weird feeling, as if […]
