As promised in my previous post, this one will be about my first spring break in the U.S.
I went to Florida with my friend Christie and her family. We took the T out to Braintree where she’s from right after our last class on Friday to meet up with her family, packed the car and started our 22h trip down south. I basically slept through the entire trip except for when we stopped for food. We came down to her great aunt in Port st. Lucy on Saturday night and spend two nights there before we took the car alone down to Fort Lauderdale on Monday. Christie and I had a great time there and spend most of our time at the beach. We came back to Port st. Lucy on Wednesday night, and on Thursday morning they surprised me with a cake with candles since it was my 21st birthday. After we ate we started to pack the car to go home again. The trip back was a little different from the last one though. We stopped at a place who had speed boats and alligator safari. We took a guided trip and the guide told us about the different animals that lived in the wetland. Other than alligators we saw turtles, swimming birds and snakes. It was so much fun! Christie and I actually tried to go on our own alligator safari by her Aunt’s house, but we got scared by the huge eagles that circulated above us the entire time so we aborted that mission, haha.
At the end of the tour we got to hold a baby alligator. We became great friends him and I as you can see on the pictures below.
