A brit in america

Not quite an englishman in new york - more - an english girl in Orlando

Well I loved it! Pleeease can I come back! It's sooo lovely and WARM!!! Around 16 - 20 degrees C most days, which was gorgeous considering in England right now it is around 2 degrees and sleeting. And the sunshine - almost every day - that was sooo lovely.

The shopping was fantastic, the prices weren't hugely cheaper than the UK, but you have great stuff. I got a beautiful patent oversized handbag, it's black with a pink lining, and people have been commenting on it and asking where it's from already.

I went to Macy's and Saks, they are lovely but pricey!

The outlet malls were brilliant.

And the food - where do I start!
I came back with my suitcase stuffed with candy for my family, and I'm really struggling not to eat it before I give it to them Whoppers - like huge malteasers, sooo yummy! Milk duds, mmmmmmm The cookies in the mall were so good. I put on 6 pounds in a week!
I did try a pretzel, which is not for me, too salty. I didn't get to try any key lime pie though, I'll save that for next time. What does it taste of? I never knew m & m's were so big over there - you have whole stores dedicated to them!

We went to a breakfast buffet and I was just overwhelmed! They offer ice cream for breakfast!!!! Carrott cake?! mmmm, I liked the tater babies though

We did the parks too, they were so cool.

Sounds like you had an amazing time! I want to go too!

key lime pie is similar in flavor to lemon meringue - but i prefer the texture of key lime [more like cheesecake] & the whipped cream topping to meringue.

Hehe! I just had to laugh when you put the parks in the last sentence! Most people go to Orlando for the parks!

It was refreshing to hear about Orlando from the perspective of a UK visitor.

I'm glad that you like Milk Duds!

Did you have any oranges or grapefruit??? Any tropical drinks??

It funny that the shopping was high on your list I like the tourist stuff when vacationing but shopping has to be on the agenda.

Tater babies!

Do you have very large drink cups over there? I've heard many European tourists to Yosemite comment on how big our drink cups are!
