Did you know...?

... that Atlanta claims to have the longest escalator in the Southeast US? Not that it really matters, but it's still quite impressive to take it every time I get out of the Peachtree MARTA station!

Well, it's not the Alps for sure... But it was fun!

Wake up at 3.30 in the morning to leave with the taxi at 4, to get at the meeting point at 4.30... And then all the way up to North Carolina! Not that long of a trip though, about 3 hours with a short coffee break in between, just what we needed to wake up a little!

Time of arrival at destination: 9.30 am :) quickly to the rental office and then... On the snow! Yeeeeaaaaaah :D all man made, but it was nice, especially in the morning... I bet it was super fun especially for those who tried for their first time ;)

Buuuuut.... Now I really wish I could go back to *my* mountains for a day of real skiing! Next year, for sure!

Awww you know those kind of things from when you were a child and you keep with you all your life long?? Well, one of those things for me was to go to Walt Disney World!! And I accomplished it, I'm soooo happy :D and not only that, I even managed to visit a Real Life Harry Potter world, another things I have always wished for!

A super full immersion of theme parks, shopping, and entertainment in only one week of travel! I couldn't ask for anything better :D I am seriuosly thinking of applying for an internship in Disneyland now, I loved it! 7 hours of overnight bus were totally worth it :D

An amazing week visiting the Santo Domingo the capital, the interiors of the Island and the beautiful and wild landscapes of Las Terrenas... Not only to mention the warmth of the people, the food, and the weather itself! Sooo far from the November climate I am used to! I really hope I can come back again!
