Where I stayed
What I did
After a nice lie in today – 9am – we headed down to the restaurant for what was meant to be a Continental Breakfast. Well I was impressed! Bread, all sorts of bagels, scones, scrambled eggs, sausages, porridge, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts – you name it, it was there. Hats off to Hampton Inn South of Universal Studios! There is even free coffee and tea on tap 24 hours.
Chores had to be done then and we used the guest laundry to get some washing done. This thankfully has all dryed during the day in the room – darks load tomorrow. The little bits of the trip, not normally included on the blog, but as we have had a fairly lazy day today you get to hear about the mundane stuff as well.
We then went off to buy a Sat Nav, or GPS as they call it over here
This afternoon after a bit of a familiarisation tour we went to a hairdressers next to the hotel and had our hair's cut – feels so much better. Had to giggle when Steve was telling me about having his done – the guy did all in his ears and his eyebrows etc. I can just imagine Steve’s face when he was doing it........I’m his usual hairdresser!
This evening we headed out to Universal’s City Walk and had a look around. In my opinion this wasn’t as nice as the one in Hollywood – but it was still good to walk around until it started to pour with rain! We went to a Bob Marley restaurant and club for a meal – it was lovely. I had beef patties with Yucca fries and Steve had a chicken curry with rice and beans. So yesterday it was Brasilian today Jamaican. Great live band playing Bob Marley tracks and other reggae songs, I was in my element. Loved it.
Had to run back to the car park as it was still pouring down, let’s hope it is better tomorrow as venturing out to Kennedy Space Centre.
