There’s been a break in blogging while we trooped off to Florida to see (amongst others) Harry Potter in Orlando and watch beautiful people in Miami.
I’ll blog more about the Orlando experience when I am fully over the jetlag – 2012, then – but two immediate thoughts:
1. Butterbeer tastes delicious. For one sip. By the second sip you are thinking, “it’s a tad sweet”, and by the third sip your taste buds are shrieking “stop! STOP! Unbearable sweetness!”. Do not, under any circumstances, buy one for each member of your family. Get one to share, and you’ll still throw most of it away.
2. Overhead at Harry Potter: the best customer service response ever. Punter: is the ride exit through the gift shop? Ride attendant: Sir, this is a theme park. Have you ever known the exit NOT to be through the gift shop?
Off to sleep…….
