Our original plans for visiting South America did not include a trip to Argentina.  Our plan was to head down South America’s west coast until we arrived in Chile and then fly to Australia.   But the more I studied the maps, I realised that we could easily travel overland between Santiago and Mendoza.  Giving

Our Experience of Hospitals in Lima Peru

I’ll be honest, we weren’t sure whether to visit the Universal parks at all.  It seemed like a lot of money for me to visit the Harry Potter bit.   But we booked our tickets at the last minute because there was no way that I was not going to do the Harry Potter bit.

Exploring Walt Disney World

During our stay in Orlando, we bought ourselves two weeks of Disney tickets.  I mean who wouldn’t.  It is literally the best thing to do in Florida.   Therefore, we spent 14 days visiting the variety of parks and other entertainment that was included with our park tickets.   Disney Springs Disney Springs is free
