Thanks so much for taking time out to update us on your holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed "travelling" with you. Have a safe flight home.

You'll be on the plane now and we are still here in Orlando about to head to Discovery Cove for the day.

I hope that you had a great and safe flight(s) home. You will be absolutely exhausted I am sure, hopefully you will all have had some sleep on the plane.

It's a shame that Boma was so busy, we have been 4 times now this trip for breakfast and it hasn't even been half full every time. We did have one not so great server though but the food made up for that. It's a long weekend here too so maybe that made it more crazy than usual. We have avoided the parks this weekend, the traffic last night as we were driving back from shopping was crazy, just so busy, we were late for Spirit of Aloha!

Anyway I have really enjoyed reading along and following your trip report, particularly being here at the same time. Really looking forward to your awesome photos!

We want to say thanks as well! We have been back from our trip for 3 weeks now & I am just in awe that you find time & energy to do all this detail for us. We have had our photos developed & I can't even motivate myself to sort those out at the moment!

Welcome home,

Once again thank you for taking the time out of your holidays to let us all travel with you in spirit. Rest up, hope any jetlag is not too bad.

Before you know it you will be planning your next trip

We're home!!!!

Whew, we are home. The trip was uneventful and smooth, very long of course but that is just the price you have to pay to hang out with the "main mouse" right . We are so tired but happy to be home. I hate unpacking but it's all done and we are now trying to get through the afternoon and early evening so we can crash into our own heavenly beds and sleep until we have our fill. You just know I'll be up at 3am wide awake, but at least I can jump on the DIS

I need to narrow down the photos that are good, then edit them, then I can share. Hmmm, when will I have time to do this I ask

Thank you for reading along. And the good news is the trip was fine, not too bad at all.

You know, I think you have something there with the "long weekend" thing. We just assumed it was because it was a Saturday. We still enjoyed it, don't get me wrong. It was more just an observation.

How many more days do you have to go? My husband and I were discussing it and we felt our 11 days was just right but you put us to shame with your 22 days

It's a shame I didn't see you wandering around Epcot or one of the other parks.

I'm glad I could help you get over the post holiday blues by reading along. You should totally get started on organising your photos over the weekend.

Thank you, I'm hoping the jetlag isn't too bad this time around.

Welcome Home

Oh Ms Shuttergirl, you are home!! Welcome back and it must be so lovely to be back in your own bed after all that plane travel back to Canberra. We will have a similar length of journey back next year I think: Orlando - L.A. - Auckland - Wellington. I have so enjoyed reading your live trip report and will look forward to seeing the photos when you get around to the massive job of sorting them out - I'm sure you have more pressing things to do than that at the moment! Good luck settling back into real life again - that's a great start to have all your unpacking done already !

4500 photos to wade through

Well there are 4500 to go through to find the gems so I don't know when I will be able to share them but will try to do it sooner rather than later. This is my BUSIEST time of year with my business plus the kids have lots of big things coming up, along with us having several interstate visitors so I am certainly hitting the ground running. No rest for the wicked they say.

I've really enjoyed writing about our trip, it was great getting it all down and sharing.
