This weekend Emily and I made a trip to Orlando for a house party celebrating a friend’s 30th birthday. I took the scenic route as an alternative to 95 for most of the way up. In doing so I found twisty and hilly roads that I did not think existed in Florida and so I was able to better enjoy my car, which now has 1000 miles on it. According to Emily, I also got lost a couple of times due to dead ends on A1A that I did not anticipate. My goal was to avoid the touristy things in Orlando which proved to be a challenge. I did somehow manage to avoid all chain restaurants… we ate at a greek restaurant and a thai restaurant, though the thai restaurant was our breakfast because I refused IHOP and Dennys. The picture is from the party, we are sitting with the wife of my coworker from Schenectady. The party was fun, and the next day we took 95 all the way home, because I wasn't allowed to take the scenic route again.

I remember when you only wanted to eat at "famous places".

Yeah well we don't stay 5 forever, I was actually thinking of that comment while in Orlando.
