Travel Memories #36 – Orlando, 2006

Welcome to Travel Memories Week 36! We hope to post every week a photo from our past travels (before children included) that makes us smile and remember the moment. We love taking photos of our travels (especially me – Sam) so we thought we would start this little series and see where it takes us. Memories are so special and when we forget we can look back at all our photo albums and know that there were happy moments which we can cherish.

Our Travel Memories

This picture was taken back in 2006. This was one of the many stops on my 3 month backpacking trip with my older brother. We were staying in Kissimmee which is the best place to stay if you are visiting Disney World! The one and only condition that my brother wanted for coming with me backpacking was that he wanted 2 weeks at Disney.

This meant valuable time was spent going to theme parks and a big chunk of our budget was taken to pay for theme park tickets. However, I wouldn’t have changed it as we had a fun 2 weeks going into Disney and taking trips to places  like Gatorland.

The picture above was taken at Gatorland, unfortunately while going round the park I got really unwell so we had to leave early to catch the bus. I think it was heat stroke so I spent the rest of the day on the hostel bed trying to recover.

It can be horrible being ill on holiday however from experience its ten times worse when your kids are ill too! Have you ever been ill on holiday?
