Carole.....your face in a couple of those pictures :rotfl: :lmao: :laughing: Tom does such a fabulous job taking the pictures. It sure does look like it would be a great time. Everything about HHN amazes me. I'm not a scary movie fan...so this is NOT up my alley...but it looks like it would be fun! Your count down is getting closer :hyper: So Exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lol......he has captured some whoppers over the years of me being terrified or just plain spooked!

It really is so much fun........although I guess if you don’t like scary movies, you’re never going to love the event........it is fabulous though!

Yes, countdown is getting close........:jumping1:

    Cannot believe we are just a week away till we leave for our overnight at the airport hotel.....

    The weather looks to be good for the Monday, so we may take up original idea and once we have checked in, walk the short walk down to the station and get on a tram into the City and have a wander round there. It only takes around 15 minutes or so to get there from the airport station.


    Manchester is quite a city. We wouldn't be able to do much in a few hours, maybe some lunch and a little shopping....but they have some lovely touristy things to do there. I have a lot of relatives live there but being a regular work day, we wouldn't be able to see any of them I`d imagine. But, it is a fun city and we do enjoy spending time there, although it`s been a long time since we did.

    If the weather isn't good, then we`ll just chill out in the bar for a few hours, watch some tv and then go for dinner. We haven't booked the Executive Lounge this time so I`m hoping we do get into the city.


    With just a week to go we have everything in place...….all the usual must do checks of Passports, ESTA`s and we have driving licences with us.....I did only remember to do our Advanced Passenger information for our flight a few days ago, but you can do that up to 72 hours before flying. But, I like to have these things in place.....

    This week will usually go past very slow......we don't have many plans this week to do much of anything...….but we`ll do our usual and have a chat about things we might want to do out of our usual plans...…..we chat about what restaurants we want to visit for definite, and several we may or may not go to...…..so we do pass the time......


    One place that has appealed to us is Madeira Beach...….

    Set between Clearwater which we do love, and St Pete`s it looks like the type of place we`d enjoy......and not too long a journey either.

    We have gone to Dunedin many times over the last few years, and just thought this might be somewhere a little different to visit, although we are usually creatures of habit, we may still end up there after all!!!


    We`ve had a couple of restaurant recommendations already and everything looks gorgeous!!!

    The only thing that may put us off going is it would be another beach day......we have a visit to New Smyrna Beach planned, and we aren't the biggest beach fans...….especially after we saw a little girl had been bitten by a shark in the water few weeks ago.....she was in shallow water......so there ends my paddling!!!! Kyle has told me I`m not allowed to do that any more at NSB!!!

    We also plan to do St Augustine...….so although we have plenty of days, I`m not sure I want to do 3 beach type visits. Decisions.


    You think a month is a long time, but I spent the day last week with one of my best friends and her and the family were in Orland for three weeks in May, and she still felt they didn't do all the things they planned after not visiting for 10 years...…..it`s kind of the same...…..we always say, oh we have plenty of time …….then it`s your last day and you realise you didn't do half the things you thought you might.

    We love our park time...…we love HHN.....we love resort time...….we love wandering around in the car to new places...…..we like a little shopping......and hopefully will get to meet a few folks while we`re there. It`s a shame we won`t manage to meet everyone that's going to be there when we are.....I wish we could...….but I`m sure we`ll manage some...….


    Packing will be next Sunday...…...probably last thing at night......then we are picked up by the car service at 9ish I believe...…..so should be there around 12.30...…it is SO close...….7 more sleeps!!!!

    Aren't these the best type of decisions though? :cool1:

    Super excited for you that the trip is so close!!
    lol....yes, it is fabulous having so many choices......I do have friends that are meticulous planners.....not quite spread sheet types, but need to have a rough idea of what they`re doing every day.....they are always horrified by our fly by night ways.....with little planning if any!!! Love it...... ::yes::

    Thanks, we are pretty excited ourselves...…..:wave2:

    1 week is so exciting we are at 25 days now and made another modification to our trip!!! I’ve never made an entire resort and itinerary change this close but we do really like Sapphire Falls!!! A category I’d been hoping for finally opened up with AP rate and it just amplified our excitement even more!!!

    :wave2:

    One more week!! It will be here before you know it!

    We made it home Friday night from a great week in Orlando. Thanks to your recommendations, we tried a few new things. We went to KSC last Wednesday and had a great time. A truly amazing place. We did not get to see everything so we are going to spend a bit more time on the east coast next trip so we can visit family in Port Orange and go back to KSC.

    We did finally make it to Teak on Friday. Our flight wasn't until 5pm so we did some shopping and had lunch there. It was AMAZING! My DH said it was one of the best meals of the trip!! One of the best burgers we've ever had and the mozzarella rounds with marinara were delicious. We also stayed at SF for 2 of the 7 nights we were there. It is a beautiful resort and I am so glad we finally were able to stay there but it felt like going home when we moved over to RPR.

    I hope this week flies by for you!

    Oh I am so pleased your trip was so wonderful!!!!

    KSC just blew us away, I think I have bored everyone to tears about how good it is.....cannot wait to get back in December as Kyle has banned us from going without him....lol.....

    Teak is fabulous, I`m so pleased you all enjoyed it......another place we bore everyone about. Those burgers and anything we have enjoyed from there has always been amazing......and Sapphire is so lovely, and yes, we still feel RP is home, it`s a very close second though......

    Thanks, we hope it passes quickly too...…. :wave2:

    Yes we have changed it to Sapphire for the entire trip! We couldn’t book PB CL for the entirety of the trip and we had thought a Deluxe room for a couple of nights at Aventura would be a brave and nice try but I had been watching AP rates and availability at SF and when I saw something we like I told my wife it’s available and how much the whole week she said that’s a no brainer change it!!!!!

    Sounds good!

    Being honest, Sapphire is miles better than Aventura....and nice you don't have to move resorts for your trip...... :thumbsup2

    :welcome: Along to another ramble JaxDad.......I’m glad you made it!

    Hope work slows down a little for you, yes it is a busy time getting kids back to school.

    It looks like we plan to visit St Augustine the first Saturday of our trip which is the 7th I believe.........will confirm with you nearer the time for certain......but glad to have you along again.......:wave2:
    Hi @schumigirl! I can't believe this is just a little more than a week away now! I still hope to meet you guys in St. Augustine. Do you need me to PM my cell phone number? I think last time we just used PMs/emails, but never got to the point of needing quicker communication.

    I'm excited for your trip--it sounds like another awesome one! (Especially if you get to meet me...)

    Lol........yes that will be awesome!!!

    I know!!! A week from now we’ll be there!! Barring flight delays of course....

    I hope we can meet up, I’ll send you a pm with our brand new American phone (took us long enough to get one) and then I’ll get yours......I have to seek it out though I send it.......lol.....we just packed it away and I have no clue what the number is offhand......but soon as I find it, I’ll send it off to you in a pm :thumbsup2

    Yep.....in town yesterday......Christmas cards and some gifts are in stores!!!!

    Can`t believe how early it all starts...…..nope no Christmas for me this early.....and I love Christmas ::yes:: ...…..but maybe middle of November will think about gifts and such.....although, have to admit our trees and decorations will be up before we leave for our December trip so everything is done for us coming home.....but wouldn't usually put things up around Nov 24th/25th.....but don't fancy coming home with jetlag to start doing everything then....

    So excited for HHN!!!!!
