Duration: 3 weeks

We went to Florida for three weeks last summer. We started off in Orlando and went to Sea World and Universal Studios. I’ve never seen so many exciting things before. Then we moved on to Naples on the coast. I really liked seeing so many animals. There were dolphins right near the beach, pelicans flying overhead and even a ray near the pier. The sea was really warm and there were lots of pretty shells on the beach. One particular highlight was swimming with dolphins in the Keys.

I was allowed to hold on to its dorsal fin and the dolphin swam off with me really fast through the water. What a thrill! That amazing holiday was over far too quickly. We flew from Miami to Washington and then home with Austrian Airlines. It was really comfortable because the seat was so big and I could lean it right back. But I didn’t sleep for long because there were so many films and video games. It was really cool!
