Bongos, Buffalo and Bobs! #offsitebudget **COMPLETE**

Hello!

Welcome to our very first food trip report. We are eagerly planning our summer trip. We love Florida and food so after reading lots of trip reports over the years we thought we would give it a go.

So we are Pumba75 and Mrs Pumba and have 2 younger Pumba's!

Our first trip was our honeymoon and then as a family we went for our "once in a lifetime holiday" which has resulted in this year being our 5th/6th trip!

Over the years we have eaten off site, on site, had free DDP, eaten cheaply and at signature restaurants. We love variety. This year however we are doing it on a complete budget and not doing the parks. Our budget is $100 a day.

Hope you enjoy.

Just so people have a glimpse of what NOT to expect this year, as no Disney or Universal this time. We took these photos on our previous holidays. No fancy cameras but just our good old iPhones.
So none of these.










But hopefully plenty more like these.









Anyone for breakfast?!




And maybe a couple of these for Mrs P!

Looking forward to reading. We're thinking about an off site budget trip next year so would be useful to see how much you spend on food
