I had so much fun during my Florida trip, especially the cruise to the Caribbean! The first day was really tiring, as we only slept for about one hour plus. That's the least I had ever slept. My husband, Edwin, worked until about 2am in the morning, and we need to leave our house at six in the morning to catch the plane. I was thinking we do not need to sleep at all already, as I am afraid that I will not wake up if I fall asleep. Haha. At four plus in the morning, we just could not stand it anymore, and decided to went to sleep. Surprisingly on the way to the airport, with only so little sleep, I did not feel as tired as I thought I would be. I was excited to see the Caribbean island. I was really more excited to go on the cruise than Disney World.
When we arrived at Florida, visually it was so different from Arizona, as we saw from the top, on the plane. Florida is full of greenery. Huge area of land are covered with trees, it was so refreshing to see so many greenery. Arizona being a desert, is mostly brown visually. Florida kinda reminded me of Singapore, with trees along the highways, and complicated roads. The weather is also pretty similar to Singapore. It was hot and humid! But I think that Florida is more humid. Being the monsoon season, it rained almost everyday. We went to get an umbrella to prepare for the rain, we do not own an umbrella in Arizona, as it rarely rain here, even so it only last for a while, so an Umbrella is not really necessary in Arizona.
On the day we arrived at Florida, it was National Cheesecake Day, and Cheesecake Factory is having 50% off all their cheesecake. We just could not resist desserts. Cheesecake!!! Thus, we went Cheesecake Factory for dinner, and guess what? We had to wait for one hour before we could get a seat! With the special deal, I guess it really attracted a lot of people. Having come all the way here, we just waited to get a seat. I find the food at Arizona's Cheesecake Factory taste better. After dinner we were just too full, and we had our cheesecake to go (take away). Yummy!!! Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake!!! The thought of it makes me drool. Being such a long trip, and fun experience. Please wait for the next installment of my vacation. Hehe.
