As you might have already gathered, I'm back in Old Blighty. I arrived home yesterday morning and the time difference made for some immense tiredness. I'm scraping together a journal about my trip before I lose the will to do it. We all know how terrible I am with journals.
Before that though, unfortunately I received some bad news at the end of my holiday. A good friend of mine, one of the people I work with - James Whirledge (or Whirlers as he was affectionately nick-named by us) sadly passed away. He was brilliant, he had a heart of gold and was wondefully funny. He was just 18, the baby of our group at work and he will be sorely missed. We all love you Whirlers.
As I said, I'll tell you guys a little about Florida! I did have a great time, even through that abnormally hot october weather. You get a jumble of pictures due to my laziness. I got up to quite a lot while I was there so I won't go through everything, just some highlights. I went to the parks of course, they were fun but oh so tiring!
Tiny pictures because I'm mean, obviously. First is dolphins! once again, obviously. We went on a two day trip, starting the Florida Keys. This was Dolphin Cove in Key Largo, and even though I find the idea of swimming with dolphins a little overdone, it really was amazing. It was a memorable experience, as you can tell by how completely retarded I look in that second picture! I swam with the two biggest dolphins in the facility, LB & Ding, who were massive ._. The only downside to that day was a woman with a full set of gold teeth, she scared the crap out of me.
Next up is the Everglades! We went there the following day and went on an Airboat, very noisey and very fun. Driver managed to soak just about everyone on the boat. How nice she was. The last stop on the trip was an afternoon in Miami. Back onto a boat for a tour, which was fun but stiflingly hot.
Another favorite from my holiday, was hand feeding Giraffes in Busch Gardens. They were so cute and really, I never knew lettuce was so appealing.
I got some great souvenirs whilst I was there. My favorite being a completely awesome, framed print of the original Back To The Future movie poster. It's my favorite film ever and I swear I would have dribbled if it wasn't so disgusting. It has pride of place on my one wall not plastered with Muse stuff! I got an epic Spongebob cushion, although my slight thing for spongebob isn't something I talk about often 8D. I have a couple of other things too, but I think that's enough talking for now.
