Universal Orlando for the Day

 

Welcome back to Life with Larissa! In the second part of the two-part series of our Florida trip, we focus on our trip to Universal! You can read about our trip to Disney the previous day here. So the day after Disney, my sister, Brit, and I headed to Universal Orlando with our cousin, JoJo, and her co-worker, Ashton. We had the park-to-park admission tickets, so we decided to tackle Islands of Adventure first. As you know, I’m not a roller coaster fan, so I hung out by my lonesome a couple of times while they all decided to ride the more thrilling rides. The first ride they rode was the Hulk. JoJo and Ashton tried to convince me to go on it, but after Ashton described it as ‘shooting us out’, I immediately declined. Continue reading “Universal Orlando for the Day”

Disney World for the Day

A few weekends ago, my sister, Brit, and I were able to travel to Orlando, Florida. We were meeting up with one of our long-time friends for one day, and staying with our cousin for the rest of the days. We also had the opportunity to visit both Disney World and Universal Studios while down there. It was my sister’s first time in both parks, so it was exciting to see her reactions while experiencing the parks. In this two part series of our adventures, you’ll read about our experiences at the parks! This post is dedicated to our time at Disney World! Continue reading “Disney World for the Day”

What Do You Like Taking Pictures Of?

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about what I’d like my first destination in South America to be due to the fact that I am a swimmer. Well, I think swimming continues to infiltrate in other areas of my life – more than I thought – because when I look at most of my pictures, they are dominated by one common factor; water.

I haven’t been to a desert yet, but when I go, I won’t be too surprised if I find an oasis. I honestly didn’t even realize most of my pictures were water based, or contained some kind of water in them until I was answering some travel questions some time ago. I was thinking to myself, ‘Larissa, you don’t really seek out anything specific in every location to photograph’. Then as I began to browse through my pictures, it became apparent that I subconsciously seek out water! Whether that means I’m in it, on it, or around it, I guess I found out that water isn’t usually that far away from me.

What’s your favorite thing to photograph? Or if you’re like me, when you look back at your pictures, what you find yourself gravitating towards? Let me know in the comments!
