I am lucky enough to work in an office just a stone’s throw from Hyde Park, which is currently being taken over by Christmas. Winter Wonderland descends on the park every year, trampling down the otherwise pristine grass with helter-skelters, rollercoasters, Bavarian bars and food stalls. It’s a completely different experience in the day compared to the evening, so I decided to do both and tell you all about it.
Most emails don’t have the power to make you jump up and down, scream, and cry. Only one made me do all three of those things and I received it two years ago. It told me that I had a summer job in Walt Disney World in Florida, which is a widely regarded as being a bit better than down at the local supermarket. I was exstatic. The recruitment process was fierce, so there was no guarantee I was going to get a place despite my passion for everything Disney. But, over seventeen years after I first waddled down Main Street as a three-year-old, my journey had come full circle and I had become a Cast Member.
I could write endless essays about my experience working for my favourite company, but I’ll restrain myself for your benefit. Instead, here are some of the highlights of my experience.
Thousands of tourists descend on Prague in the high season and they all need a place to lay their heads after a busy day of strolling through the picturesque streets. It make sense, then, that there are so many accommodation options, from friendly hostels to luxury boutique hotels. Here are the highlights.
I absolutely adore this city. Possibly one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited, though it’s completely overrun with other tourists that think the same. It’s cheap, fun, visually stunning and rich in heritage. It would also be a romantic destination for a couple’s weekend away, but as I visited with two other twenty-something females, we made the most of the cheap wine and a fun hostel. A direct flight can cost under £200 return, and with a flight time of around two hours it’s a fantastic weekend break destination.
So, you’re intrigued. You’ve heard people like me waxing lyrical about the magic of Walt Disney World in Florida, and now you think it might be somewhere that you want to go on your next holiday. Rather than just a lot of hype, I’m going to give you a run down of all the main theme parks that are most popular with Brits going across the pond for their holiday.
