Florida challenge (nearly) complete

What an exciting, exhausting and utterly exhilarating few weeks it has been for the Baby Globetrotter clan, crossing the Atlantic from Abu Dhabi to Orlando, via Doha and Miami.  We have battled ultra long-haul travel, US security, jet lag, hotel plumbing leaks, car journeys, theme park queues, car […]

The multi-generation challenge

Our Florida Challenge #7 I am absolutely thrilled that my parents in-laws will be joining us for the Orlando leg of our trip to Florida.  Having a multi-generation group really can bring out the best that family travel has to offer, if you handle it right! We have […]

The Keri is a big wimp challenge

The ultra long-haul challenge

Our Florida Challenge #2 Sure there’s long-haul flying, then there is a whole separate league for those most ardent of travellers – the ultra long-haul. Non-stop flights over 12 hours are considered in the aviation industry to be ultra long-haul with only the largest of long-range wide-bodied aircraft […]

The stopover challenge

Our Florida Challenge #1  Ok, making a stopover seemed like a good idea at the time.  We spent hours researching the best and cheapest flight options to get us from Abu Dhabi to Orlando. It is not a direct and straight forward route and with a 7,700 mile journey […]
