    Universal studios

    July 27, 2017 in the United States

    Today was the Amazing Universal Studios. I rode Simpsons, Minion Mayhem, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter 4D, and Harry Potter rides and took photos with characters. Daddy was REALLY nice and let us have the front of the line pass! I was so happy! I thought that I would like Simpsons the most, but I didn't. It was about SideShow Bob trying to get revenge on Bart. The cart was moving very vigorously and Mammy felt sick!! It was scary dark and involved violence... But the only thing that was scary was the moves. Then, we took photos with Bart and Homer and Bart tried to take Conor's hat ! Daddy took a photo with Homer because they have 1 thing in common... beer 🍻
    'Springfield'was a cute area and had the exact same shops as they do on tv. They had Kwik-E-Mart, Krusty's burger, they were selling Duff Beer (daddy didn't drink one ) and you got to meet characters. Then, we went inside Kiwk-E-Mart because I wanted to buy Daddy a present because he brought us here and got us the front of the line pass. We were going to get Daddy a duff shirt, but we asked Daddy what he wanted, and he said he wanted a homer Mug, so Mammy bought it. Then we went to see the studio tour. There was a sign in the studio tour, it said that the tour would take app. 60 mins🙀🙀🙀🙀🙀
    We got on the trams and we saw the real Universal Studios! They shoot TV shows and movies. The tour was my favourite ride because we got to see the real sets and also 360 3D King Kong/Fast and Furious I liked the King Kong because King Kong saved us from the dinosaurs that were going to eat us. And also, Jimmy Fallon was recorded on the tour!
    Then, Conor felt sick, so we rested and gave Conor a fizzy drink. Conor had no energy but he wanted to go on 1 of the Harry Potter ride, so he rode it. Conor said it was fun and we asked him if he wanted to go to Harry Potter 4D, but he said he's still not feeling well, so me and daddy went on it. From the moment we walked in, it was dark and we saw photos from the wall talking to each other, the sorting hat talking to itself and lots more Harry Potter stuff. When we got on, the chair moved sideways and I was going to tip over! Then a scary ghost appeared and I was closing my ears and eyes. I wanted to buy a Harry Potter wand that interacts and actually works. (Also has different types because of people. For example: you could buy hermoine's wand, Harry's wand or Voldemorts wand. I bought a Simpsons Tshirt that says Best Vacation Ever! And it really was, all thanks to daddy.

    History Museum

    July 29, 2017 in the United States

    We are in National history Museum San Diego and I learned a lot of stuff today. The first thing I learned was that when the humans came, the grizzly bears left because the Spanish took the place they used to live and they didn't have any homes, so they went to live somewhere else. Grizzlies are tall and I compared their height to my height and I was at their legs! I also compared my hands to the grizzlies paw and my hand was so little!!!
    Then we went to the dinosours place. I saw a cast of a dinosaur leg and it was huge!!!! And it was only the leg of the dinosour , so I was very surprised! Dinosours died because an asteroid hit land and the land caught on fire and the sun was covered, so plants didn't grow and plant eating dinosours couldn't live, so they died and meat eating dinosours couldn't eat the plant eating donosours and they all died. This was a fun experience and I hope I can go again. Tomorrow I am going to be in the plane for 10hrs and reaching Ireland tomorrow!

    Universal studios 2

    July 27, 2017 in the United States

    今日は大好きなユニバーサルスタジオです。私はシンプソン、ミニオン、ハリーポッター、ジュラシックパークの乗り物と, スタジオツアーに行きました。又、スポンジボブやカンフーパンダなどのキャラクターと写真も撮りました。ダデイは私達に 並ばずに乗り物に乗れるパスを買ってくれました。私はすごく嬉しかったです!私はシンプソンの乗り物を一番楽しみにしていたのですが、思ったより良くありませんでした。シンプソンはすごくガタガタして気持ちが悪くなりました。スプリングフィールドは シンプソンがテーマのかわいいエリアでした。ゲマンガと同じお店があったり キャラクターと写真も撮れて 本当にシンプソンの世界にいるような気持ちになりました。
    たくさん 乗り物を乗りましたが わたしが一番好きだったのは スタジオツアーでした。 スタジオツアーは トラムに乗って ユニバーサルスタジオの中を見学して面白かったです。スパイダーマンなど、映画をここで撮影をしていると聞いてすごいと思いました。キングコングなどを3Dで360度で見れて、迫力があって面白かったです。全部で1時間かかりましたが、楽しかったので、あっという間でした。その後、ママとジュラシックパークの乗り物に乗りました。 ジュラシックパークの乗り物は恐竜を見えて、最後に落ちる乗り物です。ママと私は落ちた時、すごく濡れました!ビッショビッショでした。シンガポールにもジュラシックパークの乗り物はあるけど、ここの落ちる時が早かったです!!
    私はハリーポッターも乗りました。ハリーポッターはダデイと私だけ乗りました。ハリーポッターも4Dで、すごく動きました。私はちょっと
    気持ちが悪くなりました。私の足が上がりました!!私がハリーポッターのワンドが欲しかったんですけど、高すぎて 、私は可愛いお洋服を買いました!!ユニバーサルスタジオは楽しかったです!

    History Museum 2

    July 29, 2017 in the United States

    私は今ナショナルヒストリーミュジアムサンディエゴにいます。私は恐竜と灰色熊(グリズリーベア)のことをたくさん知る事が出来ました。人間が このエリアに住み始めた時、灰色熊は逃げて行きました。どうしてかというと、灰色熊のすみかがなくなって、違うところに住みに行ったからです。灰色熊は背がとても高いです!私の背h灰色熊の脚までしか 届きません。あと、灰色熊の手と私の手のお大きさを比べたら、全然違かったです。その後、恐竜のゾーンに移動しました。私は大きい恐竜の足を見て びっくりしました!どうして恐竜はぜつめつしたのでしょうか?答えは隕石が地球に当たって、太陽が見えなくなって、葉っぱや花がかれて、葉っぱや花を食べる恐竜が死んで、お肉を食べる恐竜は死んだ恐竜しか食べられなくて、死んでる恐竜は美味しくなくて、最後はみんな死んじゃいました??。明日はアイルランドです。楽しみです!

    San Diego II

    August 8, 2017 in the United States

    Day 37: San Diego - after Chicago you conquered another place in my heart! 🌴🌴🌴
    After a lazy start I decided to see the Coronado Beach. I had to pass the downtown for it. I saw tons of palms all along the streets and military US ship which was very impressive. This one was a museum so I was allowed to take photos.
    Okay, but I wanted to see the Coronado Beach.
    So I took the bus to Coronado Island and saw the richness itself. All you saw were mansions and a huge golden good looking Coronado Beach. This one must be the most beautiful beach of San Diego. My opinion. Additionally there aren't this tons of people like at the Mission Beach for example.
    The next step was the Ocean Beach. It was not so gorgeous like the Coronado Beach but there were waves and where you find waves you find surfers! Not that much but I saw a few. Honestly I wasn't able to take photos of them because they were to far away.
    At the end of day I went to the Sunset Cliffs and yes there were pure sunset cliffs! I saw the most amazing and wonderful sunset I've ever seen! 🌅

    San Diego I

    August 7, 2017 in the United States

    Day 36: Pacific coast you got me back. Today I reached San Diego the most famous surfer city of the US.
    Well today I didn't saw any surfer 'cause I've been at the wrong beach but tomorrow I will.
    This day I just got to know the city and well it showed me its beauty!
    The longest walk today I had while I was looking for cash. At Mission Beach I saw two ATMs and both were out of order. So I went to Sea World to use the machine there but it was in a payable area. Okay let's go all the way back to another ATM where I got my money. After I returned to Mission Beach I saw an ATM in every fucking store! 🙈

    Whale Watching San Diego, USA

    January 12 in the United States

    Seelöwen und viele Vögel wie Pelikane und Kormorane haben wir gesehen, Wale leider nicht. Der Nebel wurde auch immer stärker und bei der Ankunft am Hafen war auch San Diego in Nebel getaucht... Aber wir dürfen eine Tour machen, bis wir Wale gesehen haben;-)

    Day 17

    August 21, 2017 in the United States

    Woke up 7ish. Good sleep again. Tea and final pack.

    Checked out 8.15am - we paid for P & V. Total cost about $900. A lot of money but they were so hospitable with us and saved us lots of $.

    Airport 9ish. Higher security than expected - gave Andy thorough check. Sniffer dog in queue.

    Flight 11ish.

    Flight to Vegas only an hour. Airport very near strip. Checked in fine and went to room. The hotel is enormous.....went through casino - garish carpets and bright lights. On 11th floor of famous Luxor pyramid. Room pretty big but a bit tired. No kettle or fridge!! Bad news for me! It's cheap and the lack of facilities explains why.

    Unpacked then out to strip. Hot but not unbearable. Looked for Bank because ATM in hotel charges $8 to withdraw cash. Didn't find so went for beer in Fatbar. Had bacon/sausage/egg butty and a beer. Very nice and quite cheap.

    Bought mini immersion heater for $16 and milk for €3.75 - much cheaper than buying coffee from Starbucks or similar!

    Went into Tropicana for beer - similar garish carpet.

    Then walked/monorail to famous Las Vegas sign. Queues for photos then Elvis arrived with music pack on his belt. Amusing.

    Home for tea and bit of hand washing 5.30pm.

    As expected, will take a while to adjust to this town!

    Out 7.30ish. Dusk and getting very busy. Went to German bar - quite nice then walked to Belaggio to watch the fountains. A bit disappointed really - they didn't do much and we've seen better. Think we must have missed something or they weren't working properly. Tried Double Barrel bar - closed for private function. Tried Beer Garden - closed for private function. Walked miles again and aimed for steak bar we'd seen this afternoon. On 4th floor and no menu visible so didn't bother. Went back to Irish bar in New York - bought beer and tried to sit away from music but they said diners only. We said we might be dining but they weren't interested so we drank beer and left. Went for pizza slices in New York cafe - about $25 and very nice.

    Bought bottle of wine for $30 and back to room 11ish. Tired legs!
