My Travel Story

by: Michael Templeton Start Date: Jun 11, 2017 - End Date: Oct 8, 2017
In 2011, I lived in Florida undertaking an internship with The Walt Disney Company based in Walt Disney World. I spent 6 months living, learning, and earning; just like the adverts say! Ultimately, I came to view Orlando as my second home, and make very strong connections with friends who ultimately became my second family. Sadly, my student exchange visa expired and I had to leave in July 2011.

It has now been almost 5 years since my last visit (Dec-Jan 2012/2013), and I am itching to see everyone I care about again, as well as experience the changes that have happened not only to my former work location in Tomorrowland, but to the WDW Resort as a whole. Not to mention, I'm very overdue for some Steak 'n Shake, and all-you-can-eat at Cici's!

I know that this is personal travel, and I don't know what I expect to get from this: hopefully, you can understand my desire to return to my second home, and hopefully you're willing to help me achieve this! I'm hoping to return no later than October 2018; my ideal is to return in December 2017, but who knows what'll happen! Obviously, I'll be saving money towards this, but I don't have a lot of disposable income at the moment, and flights halfway around the world are expensive.

Once I do go, I'll keep the tumblog linked to this updated with my progress. It's currently empty - don't judge me!

If you've made it this far, thank you. If you've decided to contribute, THANK YOU!
