Diary of a homeowners vacation - 1
I promise not to bore you with every detail when it comes to vacationing as an owner as it can be dull hearing about trips to home Depot etc.
Although life is never dull for an owner on vacation and here is the beginning of one such trip over 16 sunny days.
As normal we had an uneventful journey to the airport(Manchester) Wednesday morning, didn’t rush as travelling with a PE ticket and there is never much of a queue around 8. 30 am or so when we arrive. Even better when I arrived this particular morning as they checked me in at UC, so was away in minutes few. “Charmed” my way through the fast track “by invitation only” door so beat all the queues for security too! Boarded more or less first and settled in for the flight.
I was sitting next to a lady who lived in Winter Park ex owner and we had a really good laugh so hardly watched any TV or read as we just chatted and laughed our way through the flight. However as I say life is never dull.
Only the other day I was talking to friends going to Canada that I needed to make the effort and visit Canada and lo and behold 1 day later I got my wish. We ended up diverting to St Johns in New Foundland Canada due to someone falling ill! Only on the ground for about 90 minutes and could not get off but that’s Canada added to the list of countries on my travel map!
Arrived into Orlando and picked up the car no hassles as I had booked with Alamo (through usacarhire. . . . great site) as you can choose your own car and I wanted a particular model which I got, nowt fancy but not bad to drive and kinda sporty: Pontiac G6 GT. Dead fussy about car colour too can’t be red if I can help it, so got a nice metallic silver one so content on that score as well.
Ok next I am off to the villa, no hassles there but decided on a miniscule detour to Champions Gate to the Salon where I had a lovely deluxe pedicure with hot towels and all sorts of foot and leg massages, plus the massage chair it was also just what I needed after the flight. Had a bit of a French polish and design on the tootsies. Then I had my nails done so feeling a bit more human!
After the Salon I just grabbed a bit of fruit, some bread and iced tea from Publix and homeward bound I was as it was late by now and everything was shutting.
It was great to be back and I just padded around the place enjoying it then headed for an early night as a bit whacked by the end of the day as I had been up since 5.
Not a lot of folks were expecting me so I shall surprise them tomorrow.
