Florida… the state full of attractions. The vacation my family and I took to this wonderful state was an absolutely delightful one. Driving the reliable and comfortable car, living in some of the best places in the state and thoroughly enjoying ourselves, my family and I are going to be back home soon. We are not going back empty handed, but with a whole lot of healthy ideas and memories to hold on to.
In the earlier days of the trip we visited the Ever Glade natural park, where we got the chance to be one with nature. The swampy lands, wildlife and the kind people, all made it a perfect experience. We also spent a day at Miami Beach where the kids had their share of fun and games. We then went up north to Orlando, to visit the well-known theme park – LEGOLAND!
There was a wave of enthusiasm in the kids as we headed towards the theme park. It was a day very well spent. The rides will literally make you feel like you are flying, leaving you with butterflies in your stomach.
One of my favourite parts of the trip was the Whole Foods store. Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, what a delightful sight! They had wheat grass shots, and even a massage chair that could be used by anyone present in the store. This concept appealed to me, making me think about the wider picture, if it could be possible to have a massage centre and fresh fruit juice at every nook and corner of every city to help people keep fit and healthy.
As the trip progressed, we kept treating ourselves to great foods like raw chocolate, raw ice cream, fresh fruits and veggies, salads and what not. The most surprising part of the trip for me was our visit to 118 degrees, the raw food restaurant that is located in Orlando. This place was a delight to the palette and the heart alike. They serve some of the healthiest and the most delicious raw food on the planet. Right from raw lasagne, to raw smoothies and desserts, it was a pleasure to eat at the place.
I am a world traveller, and I recommend this place to everyone who wants to eat out. It is a raw food restaurant, but beats all the common notions about raw food and serves the most mouth-watering food that there is in the country.
Our brief holiday in Florida was coming to an end. With a heavy heart, we were returning to our paradise home in Costa Rica. But in our hearts and minds we were in Florida as yet, refusing to return home. With a refreshed state of mind, we resume our daily life, in our very own city.
