This might be a posh shosh of 2 days not 100% sure, the Jet lag is real. We stayed at a hotel right next to the Tower of London, my first real castle and it was awesome! If your in London, be sure to check out the tower of London! Lot of photos incoming!
Heres a photo video slideshow of my latest trip to Las Vegas. Checked out the new Luxor E-Sports Arena, had a full lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s newest spot Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace. Also flew United First class and experienced a gluten free dinner meal. Also tried a new spot at Paris “The Eiffel Restaurant”, was so good. Paris Casino is in fact the best gluten free casino in Las Vegas period.
Video update post below: I check out the IAH Airport and some other spots around town. Different format for catch up posts, a little more entertaining to make. Also hit up our favorite sushi spot. Nom.
Couple things, why the fuck did they change the recipe of the butterbeer, it tasted like garbage the day we went. That is my main complaint for the entire day at Universal, it had me so mind boggled. The foam on top was shitty as well and not that candy flavor. Bullshit. Anyways, let’s begin!
If you have ever wanted to go on a guided fishing excursion at Walt Disney World I will present you with some knowledge. It can be a fun in the sun adventure if you love to fish and the outdoors. You typically wake up at 9AM and meet up with your guide at the resort around 10AM and off you go, the resorts vary.
They go over a few basic rules then you launch out. I’ve been three times on this excursion. The first two times were awesome, the feeling of being VIP cruising through Seven Seas Lagoon and around the resorts is amazing and refreshing while in Florida.
Our last adventure our guide Sean was a total asshole, don’t know how he even has this job. If you get a good guide everything is awesome and fun, usually they bait your hook, help you cast, teach you the good spots, etc. This guy was like a lazy piece of shit who didn’t say or help worth a shit, and then when we asked he was just was so apathetic it was useless to even bother. However we still had a great time. It costs around $300 for 2-5 people for 2 hours and then your suppose to tip your captain as well. Check out the photos below for the fishing adventure.
What I was super stoked on was finding a flight back to Texas that operated on the new Dreamliner. These planes have lie flat seats for domestic routes occasionally. After hours of research you can find these airliners using Skyscanner and looking at what model plane is used.
I had to spend the extra dough to snag these seats for the family. Needless to say it was the best flying experience of my life. Also we snag some Russian caviar and eggs at LAX. I mean a Russian caviar bar at LAX? Seems like a normal thing to have right??
Finally get to visit the big cheese, the one, the only, San Diego Zoo! From what I’ve read this is supposedly one of if not the best Zoo in the world. Finally on this journey we get to explore the Zoo and see what it’s all about. Come along for the journey as I go chill at the San Diego Zoo. Turn’s out it really wasn’t all that hyped up as one thought it would be, for one the Memphis Zoo is way better in my opinion to name one.
The San Diego Zoo is also not for older people, or people with bad fitness skills as there are many hills and bridges to cross. Mostly upwards motion going on in this place, so be prepared to walk! Overall it’s a 3 on a 1-5 Zoo’s. Price per adult ticket= $54. Also the most expensive Zoo I’ve been too, minus Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
After hitting up Universal Studios we checked out of our hotel in Anaheim and decided to hit up the San Diego Zoo the next day. So then we decided to stay in Laguna Beach which is sort of the half way point between LA and San Diego. I used the hotel tonight APP and found a badass hotel with 2 floors for under $600 a night, which is perfect for the family to crash in.
The check-in parking was a nightmare since they had an event going on and party just got over so there was literally no where to park, walk up to so many people. Not a good first impression, maybe have events off to a different side than guest check in.
Checked in at night so had no idea what to expect however we came back for dinner at the hotels restaurant and it was decent. The Surfer OG Laguna Boy was pretty much lazy and pretty bad at service, he could have used a training course in the service department. However the food was decent.
The hotel room itself was nice/spacious freezing cold upon arrival. The beds were comfortable, tvs adequate and the views the next morning were beautiful. If I could get a good deal to stay here again I would. Also the golf kart kids to bring you to and from the restaurant were fun.
So I’ve been dreaming of going to Disneyland since I went when I was like 11 and after going to Disney World so many times, it has became a reality! (wishes). We flew first class on United which was fucking amazing and worth it for the 4 hour journey.
First thing we did? Grab in and out burger. I’ll try to make this a 3 blog post series but we did a lot that week including the San Diego Zoo, so hopefully I can fit it all. Tag along.
