When we travel again, a term that I would not think to ever use, yet never say never. Throwbacks are the new it thing, and here I am, finally getting some work done on my posts, videos and more.

Back to the Orange state to witness it during a different season. I always wanted to be in USA for thanksgiving, and more specifically for black Friday!

However, the weather was a bummer for most of the days, imagine that I packed for spring yet was faced by winter weather, yet hey, I wouldn’t let this ruin me. So here is your travel guide to Tampa and Orlando.

What to do

Shopping destinations

What else, I mean USA is the country where your shopping dreams come to life, there is always sale going and always a reason to indulge! My main shopping was done between Orlando premium outlet and International Plaza in Tampa; I recommend both.

Tampa Botanical garden

Which is a great activity with kids when you are in Tampa; they get to explore plantations from around the world, there is a butterfly reserve hat we couldn’t check as it was too cold for them to be out! The staff are very helpful and you can explore on your own too.

Disney springs

The address to be after you visit Disneyland Orlando, any of the studios or just like us, to hangout. Full of shopping addresses, movie theaters and restaurants to please you.

Armature work

A small park which is the perfect address for families too as kids can enjoy feeding the fish and roaming freely. Besides the dining experience, the place has a restored factory that have been repurposed into huge food court, coffee shops and cooking studio. Bonus it even has a fire place!

Clearwater

It cannot be any more beautiful, the endless sandy beaches and the best place to be to feel relaxed and on vacation. Even if I couldn’t profit of the beach, just walking by was relieving so make sure you treat yourself there.

Where to drink and eat

Kahwa

Get your cup of Joe fix, I tried the one in Intl Plaza, and it is definitely a must have

Wholefoods

Whether you are looking to fill your cart with healthy items or even quick dining stop, wholefoods is actually the best destination to be.

Bern’s steakhouse

How about you transport yourself to a dining experience in the fifties? tempting no? bern’s is the right address to be! Different rooms and different vibes. Finish your meal and take the kitchen and wine cellar tour where they tell you the story of the place. And finally head to the dessert room for a jazzy and decadent experience!
