Hima Guest Post

Well guys, I am off to Montana with Russ to meet up with Cory and Lindsay on their around the country RV adventure.  My mom lives in Montana so we are going to meet at her place for some outdoorsy fun.  We get home late Monday and back to work Tuesday so someday late next week I'll give you guys the scoop! 

In the meantime, Hima is gonna fill in for me and tell you guys about her favorite vacay!  She is from the Bay as well and yes she is 14 and already blogging and taking way better pictures than I do!  She makes me feel very old (which I kind of am now).  Enjoy!

Hey there, wonderful adventurers! I'm so excited to be guest posting today, talking about my favorite vacation! First, just a little tiny bit about myself.  I'm Hima, a 14 year-old optimist in the Silicon Valley (CA), and I blog over at My Musings I'm absolutely addicted to strawberries and sea salt chocolate covered almonds. I'm a first degree black belt in taekwondo, and I will always love San Francisco, no matter how many times I go. I see life as my adventure and I intend to live it in the best way possible! Enough about me, let's talk about vacations. 
So this past December, my family flew cross country to the other Disney central of America, Florida and had the best ten day, fun-filled vacation ever. First on the agenda was a three-day Christmas cruise to the Bahamas. The most fun, food, and sun you could pack in to three days. We even go to go snorkeling, and friends, you would not believe how clear the water is! 

Even if I live in CA, an hour is little far to see the sun set over the water, so this was just the best thing ever. Ths sun lit up the sky, like it was feeding off of our energy and projecting it out into the sky. 

I'm sure this is more than a little creepy, but come on, how could I resist?

After the cruise, well, it was off to every Disney Park imaginable: the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and. Hollywood Studios. Although I enjoyed all of them, I think that the Magic Kingdom truly captures the essence of Disney. It's all about imagination and creativity, and the freedom to be who you want to be. Throw in all the rides and the fun shows and it really is the happiest place on earth! Except for the food. Theme park food is not my favorite. By any means.

I know this picture is rather unflattering, but let's focus on the background, shall we? 
That little monster behind me? That's my brother, Yashu! He's 8, I'm 14, and we both think the other one is pretty annoying. 

I mean, we fight. 

but we still love each other!

Watch out, guys! We're coming to get you! We've even got the blessing of Ra-Tiki-Ta, the monkey god. 

Last, but definitely not least, we went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This was one of my favorite parts of the whole trip. I mean, what's not to love!? It's Harry Potter! 

Hogwarts. enough said. 

Sleeping Beauty's Castle, in all it's glory. The best possible end to an amazing vacation. 

Thanks so much for reading everybody! I had vacationfuls of fun (see what I did there?) recounting and remembering this vacation, so thanks for having me guest post Chantal! Don't forget to stop by my blog  and stay a while if you like. 

That's all for now!
