    Fort Lauderdale

    May 28, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Fort Lauderdale bietet jetzt nicht unbedingt unendlich viele Attraktionen, aber ganz nett war die Woche hier auf jeden Fall!

    Nach 4 Monaten Südamerika wirkte alles so...sauber...aufgeräumt...organisiert...und selbst die amerikanische (aufgesetzte?) Freundlichkeit war irgendwie erfrischend :-)

    Am spannendsten war auf jeden Fall die Fahrt mit dem "Water Taxi".
    Fort Lauderdale besteht aus unendlich vielen Wasserstraßen, an denen riesige Villen liegen, jede mit dem eigenen Bootsanleger und dicker Yacht davor.

    The American Way...

    June 2, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Kaum zu glauben, was man alles erledigen kann, OHNE das Auto zu verlassen!

    Wir wollten das mal testen und haben bei Starbucks angefangen, dann mit McDonald's weitergemacht, sind dann aber doch bei der Apotheke und zum Geld holen ausgestiegen. Wäre aber auch alles "drive thru" möglich gewesen!

    Verrückt! ;-)

    Zur Kategorie "ungesundes Essen" passte dann auch der Besuch eines typischen "American Diner" an unserem letzten Morgen.
    Wir haben uns dann doch gegen das Steak entschieden...morgens um 08.00 Uhr...aber die Portion war so oder so eine Ansage!

    Nashville to Fort Lauderdale

    October 23, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    We started early today thanks to a 4am wake-up. Ted unfortunately didn't have a good sleep as he was sick the whole night. Getting to the airport wasn't as easy as we'd hoped as the original Uber we requested was over half an hour away. We finally found one closer and were on our way.

    After checking in, we had a pretty decent breakfast of coffee and waffles before heading to our flight. Our flight on Southwest was far from memorable, so it was something of a relief when we reached Fort Lauderdale. Well, at least it was until we tried to find our airport shuttle. Continuing our tradition of always having dodgy airport shuttles, our over-worked, stressed out, elderly Hispanic driver finally turned up in a plain white van to collect us. First however, we had to wait for other passengers who similarly couldn't recognise that the plain white van was their shuttle service. After all this confusion, we were finally departed.

    Our check-in for the cruise was actually quite smooth and simple until we reached the counter. When the agent couldn't find the USA entry stamp in Ted's passport, they were not going to check us in. It was exactly the kind of stress and confusion we didn't need, so we quickly retrieved the passport and managed to find the stamp in a few minutes. Once the initial panic had waned, we headed towards our cruise ship!

    We have previously sailed with Celebrity, and this cruise company is Royal Caribbean. Whilst the boat is quite fine, it still looks like the Walmart variety in comparison! We previously had a balcony room on Celebrity but the window room we have on this ship is fine. We tried to have a snooze on the boat but unfortunately all the passengers were called to the deck prior to departure for the emergency drill. It wouldn't have been so bad if we didn't have to stand in the blazing sun to do it!

    Since a buffet lunch was available, we wasted no time in going to the zoo, um dining room, to get something to eat. With Ted being diabetic and myself being vegetarian, fortunately there were still plenty of food options for both of us. We had a walk around the ship to orientate ourselves, and could see how it is definitely different to the Celebrity cruise. It isn't necessarily a bad thing though, as some of the things on Celebrity seemed a bit too high end.

    We considered going to bingo but at $33 a game, changed our mind. After our buffet lunch, we decided a buffet dinner was the perfect way to finish the evening. After this big day, it looks like an early night is the best option!

    Overnight in Ft Lauderdale

    September 1, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 88 °F

    We were booked in to the Gallery One Doubletree hotel for one night, till we board the Oasis it's for the transatlantic crossing.
    I'm very impressed with the hotel the rooms are huge and brilliant.
    If we where staying longer they'd be ideal, having everything you'd need for an extended stay. Two huge flat screen TVs, dining table, microwave crockery etc, even down to a cooker and dishwasher.
    Also the location is good if you like to shop in big malls as the hotel is right next door to the Galleria Mall, and right over the road from Publix supermarket and a nice Starbucks.
    But of I had to choose between this hotel and the one we stayed in last week, the Hilton Marina, I'd choose the Hilton for its location very close to the port entrance.

    Good flight but, soooo long!

    April 27, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 84 °F

    Well the taxi came on time as usual.
    I can highly recommend Martin and his airport service.
    The airport check in was brill, it took all of 2 minutes to drop our bags and check in.
    The flight to Heathrow was uneventful as was the flight to Miami, the latter being good but long and tiring.
    Sheila and I have agreed that after the cruise next January, we'll probably not be doing anymore long haul flights.
    Anyway we arrive at the wonderful Miami airport, where the lovely immigration officer refuses to accept sheilas disabled card, saying it's not an official US document. I know you knob it's an official UK document.
    Anyway Shelia calms me down and we join the other queue.
    Maz and Sue are already at the front and convinced one of the staff that we were travelling together and she let us join them.
    We were very grateful as Sheila could not have stood for much longer she was knackered. Anyway we get through "homeland security"
    Then we have to queue again for customs where a completely disinterested customs guy takes a Perfunctory glance at our passports and waves us through.
    A completely pointless exercise as we had already had our passports checked properly at immigration.
    I'm certain they don't really want visitors in this bloody country.
    No wonder they are disliked all over the world.
    Anyway got to the hotel with the excellent transfer service, good, quick service.
    The hotel is nice and the room is excellent.
    So it's now 5.30am and I'm on the lobby having a coffee and writing this blog.
    I'm looking forward to watching the Liverpool v Chelsea game which is on the TV at 9.05am local time.
    Just a bit disappointed with the Everton result yesterday, think they've thrown away the 4th place in the league, as I can't see Arsenal slipping up now, as they've just started hitting some good form.
    But hey ho, it's only football, and for once Mr Shankly was wrong it's not more important than life and death, as Hillsborough proved.
    Speak later.
