I confess I did skip past the gun range part as even scrolling through it made me anxious. But I loved all the places you visited. Oh I miss it so much!
Thanks for reading Helen. I miss it too 😢. The villa was great and we loved High Grove - we would definitely go back there and to the same villa if it was available. I remember that you loved sitting out by the pool looking over the conservation area in the early mornings - we did too, it was so peaceful.

We went to Teak because of you! Iíve read so many good reports of it from you that I insisted we try it this time. We would definitely go back - the burgers were amazing.

I totally get that the gun range part isnít for everyone. Iím glad you enjoyed reading about the other places we visited though 😁.

Your sat nav mishap reminds me of the time ours was accidentally set to "Hawaii" instead of "mainland US" and it said there were no theme parks nearby in Orlando.

I am pretty sure the birds were Sandhill Cranes not Whooping, they are much more common here and darker. We used to have a pair visiting us every morning.

What a great trip and so many amazing pictures too
Love the dining links in each day

I keep trying to tell people that Miami Airport has got better with time, but we usually grab our bags and drive to avoid the shuffle up to MCO.

Your villa looks amazing and the very thought of that view with a glass of wine in the spa pool is something else

A rocket launch and to see the gingerbread house must have made memories beyond imaginable!

Loved reading all about your trip

Haha, that could have been an interesting detour via Hawaii! We felt a bit silly when we remembered that we had changed the settings, but we got there in the end.

I'm no crane expert, so open to all suggestions. They were more a light grey colour rather than white and it sounds like you know what you're talking about. Regardless of what they were, we loved watching these birds every day. Thank you for reading

You know, it was an amazing trip - not to everyone's taste perhaps, but we loved it all. Ah, thank you - I thought the links to the dining report would save me from typing it all out again... a cunning plan to encourage my own laziness

Hmm, it would take some amount of convincing for us to travel through Miami again... I mean, if it's better now then how much worse was it before I think you have the right idea with driving up to Orlando from there.

The villa was great for us, we really enjoyed the views each day. Evenings in the spa were fab! The rocket launch was a huge highlight for us both - a wonderful experience - and seeing the GF Gingerbread House was definitely one for me. It really is all about the memories .

Thank you so much for reading

Iíve really enjoyed this report.
We have missed not going this year so much

We are unlucky like you that our local airport BHX is useless only flights to MCO are TUI . We used to use United but they pulled out a couple of years ago , we tend to use Manchester now only bonus being I do enjoy a pre travel hotel stay

Resort hopping is something Iíd love to do ,sadly Iíd be on my own thereís no way any of my gang would entertain it.

A great read , thanks and now Iím off to read the food report

Thank you so much for reading. I'm sorry you missed your holiday this year - it's rubbish isn't it?

I do wish sometimes that we lived near a big airport, but you're right - a pre-travel hotel stay helps a bit.

Aw, that's a shame that your people wouldn't resort hop with you. My DH did think it was a bit pointless when I first mentioned it, but seeing as we didn't have plans to do much else he didn't have a reason not to come along! I think he enjoyed it (a bit) in the end.
