Oh Holi Day!

Holi Day!

Over a year ago now I stumbled upon some pictures of people absolutely covered in colour and their faces drenched in smiles. After some general research, I soon found out, that was none other than a Hindu festival called Holi. As soon as I found out about it, and came to realize that a major participant in the world was India, I HAD to go! Here we are, just a year and a bit later and I finally went (and came back) and was sooo excited I was able to participate in what I really think is…

I have noticed though, many people think they can just go to Disney World on a whim and that’s all there is to it! In some ways you can, especially if you can go frequently. If you can’t though, you have to know what you’re doing and be ready for what to expect. So as a first timer,…

Disney World Lesson #1

It's a small world

it is a small world!

On my recent trip to Disney World, I was lucky enough to be able to go on tons of rides- mostly kiddie rides, but they were so much fun!

My favourite ride, and although many won’t agree, was “It’s a small world”.

Probably the most classic ride in the theme park, and one that is found around Disney Parks globally. I suppose the reason I love this ride so much is because it encompasses what I believe about the world. Not to mention as a traveller, it is…
