I started looking at plane tickets, hotels, and rental cars. We found an awesome deal, and we booked it. I went to go talk to my friend Chris, on Facebook to tell him I was going, as a joke he said, Take me too! I told my mom what he said, she laughed and said Why not? I told him to convince his parents because we were leaving in 2 days. It took him a full day, but Wednesday night Chris and his mom showed up to my house with his bags packed ready to go to Florida.
We woke up bright and early Thursday morning, ready to drive to Boston for our trip. The drive was long, and painful, mostly because of the lack of air conditioning in my mothers car, and even though it was 5:30 in the morning. It was late July so the heat was unbearable. When we finally got to the airport it was about 6:30am and we had almost an hour to get to through security, and onto our flight, but luckily we got a non-stop flight and we didnt have to worry about layovers. When we got to our gate it was just about time to start boarding. We got on the plan and sadly got stuck in the back of the plane. Once we took off, I fell asleep and didnt wake up until I heard the captain announce We will be landing in Orlando in 30 minutes I turned off my iPod and got ready for the coolest vacation I had ever had.
Florida was extremely humid, and you could feel it the second you got off the plane. It was already almost noon when we got to the hotel, we decided to go swimming in the hotels pool and then go to Downtown Disney for dinner. We had planned out our whole trip. Going to Universal the first few days, then going to Disney World for the rest of our trip. Universal was amazing and I got to experience so many things I had never gotten to do before. Disney world made me feel like I was six¦ but it was still fun.
That was the first trip I had gone on without my father leading the way, it was the first trip I ever got to bring a friend on, and it was the best trip I had ever been on. 2011 was the worst year of my life; it was a year that had changed me for the worse. That trip to Florida taught me what fun was, it made me the happiest person alive, and if I never went on that trip, I dont know where I would be today, but I have a feeling I wouldnt be writing this paper.
