the holiday plans of the unorganised!!
me and my family are going on our first trip to florida!!
dad - anthony 25
well after over 2 year of pestering anthony about going to florida he finally agreed. he has had many reservations about this holiday
- he wasnt 25 so didnt want to pay the young driver surcharge on a hire car
- cant go untill we have paid our credit card debts off ( 5 year ago we owed over 20k)
- kids too young
ok so i admit( not to his face) some of those were sensible reasons not to go anyway now he is 25 and the kids are older and even better tall for there ages and i have been saving /and reducing the debt at a considerable rate
i cancelled expensive phones ,sky tv, sold my car so now not only am i almost debt free ( amazing what a disney holiday can motivate you in to doing) i had a nice little stash for our deposit saved up !!
i spent ages pricing up various options and packages and finally got a price he was happy with at just £5200 but then something funny happened and when i went to book the flights an extra week just added itself on by accident
so now we have 3 weeks 22nd aug 2013 til 12th sept 2013!!
i have also booked 7nights at port orleans riverside with dining an and 14 days tickets
and 1 night in miami
my problem now is i want to do everything !! literally sea world , gatorland, miami, key west , universal , busch gardens, dinner shows, cruises, airboats... and so the list goes on
i got some guide books thinking these would be helpful but no i just found more things i want to do horseback safaris, national parks, kennedy space centre, daytona speedway
so now im faced with the task of eliminating things from this list
