About a couple months back in the year I was sitting on the couch and talking with my mother and telling her about where I wanted to go for spring break and this year I really wanted to go to Orlando. A day after that while I was sitting on the chair at school I saw this message from my mom and it was a picture of a travel itinerary for our flight. I couldn’t believe it I didn’t think that it would really happen I was filled with happiness and joy, I just couldn’t wait for the trip. I just love to go out and explore the world and you get such a great feeling when you go to a new country that you have never been in before, and you just want to go out explore and have fun and don’t forget to make new memories. As the months passed by slowly I was just counting down the days till I would leave and explore a new country. Once April was around the corner I had to start packing my suitcases for my trip and of course my sisters and father kept on telling me to pack light so that I would have space to buy stuff from Orlando and put them in my luggage and bring them back with me.
April 1,2015 5:15 am, I woke up from my beauty sleep and I rushed towards the bathroom to get dressed and brush my teeth to get ready for my flight. Once I was ready I closed up my suitcases and my Father loaded them up on to the car. Mother and I were then heading to the airport with my Father at 6 am. On the way to the airport Mother and I were chatting with Father and telling him what we will do once we get there in New York. Oops did I forget to mention that in order to get to Orlando I would have to fly out to New York and stay their a night, and then take a flight out of New York to Orlando the next afternoon. After a long 30 minute ride to the airport, we finally arrived there and checked in our bags to the plane at the check in counter. As always we have to go to Starbucks because well who doesn’t love it, so after we checked in our bags Mother, Father, and I went down to Starbucks to have a couple of drinks. I had a hot chocolate and Father had a cappuccino while Mother didn’t want to drink anything so she just had water.
We headed into the gate at around 8:30 am as we waited it was finally time to board the plane at 11 am. I was beginning to get tired of waiting and I just couldn’t wait to take off and leave. Mother and I got on the plane and put our carry ons on the over head bin on top of our seats and sat down with our seat belts fastened waiting to take off. 12 pm we finally took off, throughout the flight I slept for a couple of hours watched tv on my ipad thanks to my sis Jumana (Jacqui) I was watching the Goldbergs and has anyone seen it if you haven’t then I recommend you to it’s super funny was laughing throughout the whole flight, and listened to some music on my iphone and my ipod. Of course I was very eager to get to New York to see my sister who lives there but unfortunately she was busy so we weren’t able to see her but that’s okay. As the hours went by slowly it finally was time to land and once we landed it was about 5 pm and chilly like 41 degrees Fahrenheit. We got off the plane got our passports stamped and collected our luggage from the baggage belt and hailed a taxi to head to our hotel. Our hotel was very close to La Guardia Airport because the next day we would take a flight from New York to Orlando.
After a 30 minute drive from the airport to our hotel we finally arrived and we checked in our beautiful room and relaxed. It was about 7:30 pm when I was starting to get hungry and I asked Mother if I could order room service so I ordered a shrimp cocktail which by the way was very delicious but was a small portion wish that we got 2 of it but oh well, I also ordered a Caesar salad it was also yummy. While I was waiting for the food to arrive my Mother had fallen asleep and I started to feel very tired so I fell asleep. Of course I forgot all about the food and my Mom woke me up at 9pm telling me the food was here and I was so hungry so I got up and started to eat the shrimp cocktail and my caesar salad. While I was eating I was checking my messages and Instagram and decided to brush my teeth and go back to bed.Mother decided to do the same thing since we were both exhausted from our 14 hour flight from Kuwait to New York ( 14 hours I know what you are thinking and it was super exhausting).
We got up around 9 am and freshened up and got dressed and headed down to the lobby, Mother and I went into the hotels restaurant and decided to order some breakfast.I had some pancakes while Mom had eggs and toast we both had some orange juice and we sat in the restaurant for about half an hour. We talked to our family back home and sent them pictures since Dad was demanding we send them so he could see what we were doing and feel like he is apart of the vacation. At around 11 am Mother and I zipped up our bags made sure nothing was missing and checked out of the hotel. Luckily for us there was a bus outside the hotel that would take you directly to your gate at the airport, So Mom and I got on the bus and the bus driver loaded up our luggage to the place where they put them. Finally, after a long and bumpy ride we reached our gate and got off the bus and the bus driver handed us our bags and we left to go and get our boarding tickets. We got our tickets and checked in our suitcases, then we headed for the TSA security check where while we were in line we saw a police dog who was sniffing our suitcases.After that we were asked to put our backpacks and carry-ons in buckets and take off our coats,laptops,shoes,and any liquids from our bags to the buckets. This process took us about 5 minutes tops, once we were done we headed to a restaurant and ate before our flight. We got on the plane at 2 pm and took off and Mother and I were on our way to Orlando. Stay tuned for the next post where I will include details about Orlando and what we did their.
