Visit from our family

We were so happy, that Dominik’s godson (“Göttibueb”) and his mum, Dominik’s sister, could make it to come visiting us in Florida. We of course wanted it to be the trip of a lifetime for the almost 10 year old boy, so we planned long ahead an exquisite trip through central Florida with visits to Tampa (and the nearby Bush Gardens) and of course Orlando with all its fun things for children by the Disney company as well as two Florida State Parks, where he could hike, see manatees and alligators and drive with an airboat. In Orlando, we’ve chosen to go to Disney Discovery Cove, where you can swim with dolphins, which was such a great experience for kids and adults alike and enjoyed an evening at Disney Springs.

After a long flight inmidst the night a tired but happy mother and son came from Zurich to Tampa:Noah Visit
The day after they already started their trip through Florida:

Then we enjoyed a more relaxing day at Blue Springs State Park with watching manatees in their winter quarter and grilling burgers and marshmallows:

Next again a more thrilling event.. an airboat tour in Kissimmee State Park to see alligators.. and we saw tons of them and huge ones. As well as lots of vultures, other huge birds and a beautiful bald eagle:

Of course they also couldn’t miss an Outlet before going home and some sightseeing of Orlando (and Disney Springs), Tampa and Fort Myers combined with good food.

And with such a packed plan, the days flew by very quickly and we took them to Miami to fly back to Switzerland.

We thank our godson and his mum for having visited us. We enjoyed the time with them a lot and hope that they keep some good memories of a beautiful country and took home some Florida sun to wintery Switzerland.

  1. Dominik’s sister and the nephew, both look like they are enjoying the sun and sea of Florida. And the nephew looks like he’s in 7th heaven.
