Trip Report 4?

Well, firstly the weather. It was cooler a couple of days ago and we were warned to have our jackets with us. There are two reasons why we respectfully ignored this advice.

One..It had dropped from 73 to 69*. This is still very warm for someone who has come from snow. Two you have to remember that the temps are always done in the shade. Out in the sunshine it was like 77* which was very warm.

Today it is 75*+ which is very warm.

We have been shopping at various locations and prices vary. Macys at Mall of Millenia were cheaper for hubby than the one in Florida Mall (strange!).

In general the shops are dearer (but still cheaper than the UK) than last year and the ranges are smaller. JCP have less selling area than in the past and where there were once racks of offers there are now open areas with a small display.

A word of warning..Macys 10% off card for foreigners is now not available on certain items. In the mens dept today through to Sunday there is 25% off anything which totals $100 or more but you cannot use your 10% on top of this. Never mind, he spent $190!!!!!.

I believe Florida Mall is better than Millenia, mainly because it seems busier and many items at Millenia I cannot afford lol

Everywhere is quieter. Went into Earls at DTD and outside (it was 72*) there was no-one sat and inside it was half empty. I still cannot understand how they can operate in England under H&S rules!

On the roads we have seen several lots of police with speed cameras out and about. Twice they have been near the Olive Gardens on Palm Parkway pulling people.

The drivers still have no idea what an indicator is for but suprisingly there have been few accidents. We have had several murders around but not near us. All for now.

Hi. Not been on the cruise yet. May go next week sometime but wil report on it after.

I just said 'no more' because it did not appear anyone was reading them! Until some comment is made it looks as though no-one is.

I know that some points appear negative but it is how we see things (hubby and I) as not all that happens here is sweetness and light.

We too are feeling like Ollie and Suzie in that we are coming here too much (6-8 weeks a year) and that there are other places to visit (our fav being Malta).

As neither of us likes too much heat (75 is great) then we only come Jan-March or Nov-Dec and that is also the time for Malta and Europe. The USA interferes with other breaks such as cruises so we may concentrate on them

After doing it so many times we will not come for four weeks again but may do for a fortnight in the future. There is also the increased cost. For what we pay in maintenance on our property we could have an all in 10 days in Malta!

Posts do tend to slip down the page I think it depends on what time of day you write them

If you do decide to go on the casino cruise please let us know as its on my list of things to do for our last trip

Do I need a jacket?
