My Favorite Vacation to Universal Studios and the Bahamas!

Hello, Friends!

How have you been? Honestly, I am super reminiscing on summer time right now and have been consumed by wanderlust!  So, today I am going to share with you one of my favorite Vacations! I hope you enjoy!

Four years ago my family and I were headed on a Cruise to the Bahamas for my great grandmas 90th Birthday! Because our ship ported from Florida we took a detour to Orlando for Universal Studios where we enriched ourselves in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I was extremely impressed by the magical beings, sights, and hidden treasures! I cannot even imagine what it is like now that they have added on to this magical and whimsical heaven! Can’t wait to board the Hogwarts Express once more!

Once aboard the ship, we sailed the seas and relaxed on deck! With a plethora of gorgeous sights and rich culture, there wasn’t much to not love about the Bahamas! Although I will admit I am not a huge fan of cruises, as I tried to keep my food down the majority of the time, being on land was quite the adventure with the soft, warm sand under my feet. I could spend all day on the beach with my mind lost searching for seashells as the cool water danced beneath my toes. Next time I will not forget to re-apply my sunscreen for my sister and me were so sunburnt that even wearing clothes was a burden and we were so red lobsters called us by name. But, it is a favorite story to tell because we laugh at ourselves now for it!

A vacation filled with family, amazing adventure, and continuous memories! Comment down below your favorite vacation. And don’t forget sharing is caring! For some of my other favorite vacations here in my home state check out this blog post Adventures in Colorful Colorado!

You are such an amazing human being and I hope you are finding your fulfilling purpose in this world!

    My favorite vacation was Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, Flagstaff in July 2003 with GG 👵🏻👴🏻Hart’s RV🚐. It broke down and left us stranded in Flagstaff and we never made it to the Lowell Observatorty🌌🌠, two days later, but for three days its was bliss, my dream the open road 🛣with the sunset 🌞behind us and the national park🏜 in front of us and my family 👨‍👧‍👧 beside me in a RV perfect for a small family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 . Sam was 2 and you were 7 so you probably don’t remember it much, but I wore Pop-Pops faded blue hat and pipped that broke-down RV at 40 mph downhill. That’s where Bitchagater came from because daddy was the navigator🗺, lunch maker🍔, baby tamer 👶🏻👼🏻while I drove. We sang 🎤and danced our heart off 🕺🏼💃🏼👯🕺🏼💃🏼👯to “Hot in Herre” & “Drop it ” & “Get Low” “Can’t Wake Up” “Right Thurr” “How You Remind Me” and I’m sure a droozen more. We saw the most beautiful sunsets 🌅and ate s’mores by the tiny camp fire🏕. And Daddy tried to kill himself on the ledge of the Canyon⛰. I think all the pics are on the fried PC downstairs. Sam and you loved to play kitty&dog 🐱🐶looking out the giant back window. I remember Sam had a blue outfit you wore pink for one day how fitting now looking back. We got fresh fruit in Mesa Verde and corn I think and had it our first night at Canyon. I can’t wait to do it again. I’m afraid there won’t be enough time ⏳all parks 🏞🏜🚵🏻, gardens🦋🌻🐞🌸🐝🌼🐛🌺🦋, castles🏰🏯🏟⛲️🗿, museums 🏛⛩🏤and trails🚵🏻‍♀️🌍. Oh no who will watch the donkey🐴. May we have many trips together. 😘 ❤️💜💚🖤💛💙💖💛💜

    Sorry you got sea sick. I love cruises but than again I love to get up and go by boat, plane, train or car. I have been to the Bahamas twice and will go again given the chance. Enjoy travel.
