Place 81 – Day 6: Orlando,FL – Easter Sunday Swim

Swim

Kim and Abbie really wanted to surf today, so they headed down the beach with Tom & Maggie to see if they could rent some surfboards.

They Got A Nice Family Photo

Unfortunately, there were no waves for surfing, so instead they just swam and the weather was perfect.

Whilst this happened, Curtis was back at the house relaxing and watching an important Leafs playoff game.

After a few hours of swimming and relaxing, a coffee was purchased and they went back to the house.

Panda Express

After Curtis finished watching hockey, we went for some dinner at Panda Express as it is quick, easy & tasty.

We all ate up and then went looking for some dessert in Waffle House, but it turns out they aren’t really a dessert waffle place so we gave up and went home.

Dramatic Card Games

We played some card games together today.

Abbie had a game which she wanted to share with us which was like spies and agents. It took us a bit to get our heads around it but really enjoyed it once we got it.

We played a few games of that and then some games of UNO before it was bed time.

Place 71 – Day 3: Portland, OR – Chinatown, Downtown & Food Trucks

Admin Morning

We were up early and were ready to go!

We went down for our breakfast and were reunited with some of our crew from yesterday.

We then went upstairs, got showered and planned to start the day.

We did a bit of admin and before we knew it, it was 14:00!

We decided we should go out for a bit, so we walked down to Chinatown for something to eat.

Very Stylish Looking Buildings Near Our Hostel

Chinatown

We had thought that Chinatown would be awesome, as it is in most places, but it was very disappointing.

There was very little to eat and it was very run down.

A Bit Of Wall Art In Chinatown

Downtown

We left Chinatown and went to the downtown area, which was very built up and actually looked really nice.

We walked around a bit and around some malls, but before that we stopped at a Vietnamese street food place called ‘cuòn‘.

This place had really good (but not perfect) Banh Mi & incredible Vietnamese iced coffee.

Beer Tasting & Uno

We got back and chilled out for a bit before we did the free hostel beer tasting.

The hostel has beer on tap and we were able to get 6 to try and then a pint for $2 discount after, so we got the group from yesterday all back together and had some drinks.

2 girls, one from France and another from Denmark were playing Uno next to us and so we all joined in and had a few games of Uno, which was great fun!

Food Trucks

We planned to got to a comedy show at 22:30, so we all headed to town to get food first.

We were informed of some food trucks, so we went to find those and see what there was.

There was a lot of greek/turkish, so we decided on kebabs!

Kim had a chicken kebab and Curtis had a pork one. They were just what we needed. We all stood around and ate our food before going towards the comedy show.

The Gang!

The Comedy Show

We got to the venue and were unable to get a seat at the comedy show, so we sat up in the bar area instead.

We had a drink and chatted between us, as well as speaking with some other people in the bar.

It got pretty late so everyone headed out, but we had another awesome day!

We have fun planned for tomorrow so should be an interesting one.
