Dubai

Dubai

We all started our year in Iceland but my mom and I quickly left the semi cold winter there and went to Providence were is was really cold. We took a short weekend trip to New York with all the kids who really seemed to like Toys”R”us. After that my mom went to Europe to meet my dad and I went to England to stay with my cousin, Alexandra. After a few days we all met again to take a flight to Dubai, which was our one day stopover trip on the way to Africa.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam

For Christmas itself we were going to stay in Amsterdam. Again we found an odd place to sleep in because now we were staying on man-made islands. The house we were in is half in the water, but others around us stood completely in the middle of it. This house was on three floors and the stairs were a bit better than in the cube houses in Rotterdam, but it was still a hassle walking up and down.

Las Vegas and Grand Canyon

Las Vegas and Grand Canyon

I was very exited when we were going to Vegas, I mean, who wouldn't be? I've seen a lot of movies that take place in Vegas and it's almost all the same. The only difference that I noticed is that they make it look more fancy in the movies. When your watching the Oceans 11, 12 and 13 movies everyone in the casino looks so happy and cheer when someone wins but in reality it's a very sad place to be in.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles

 

My dream is to become a filmmaker and direct both regular and animated movies so Los Angeles was a very good place to be. I loved everything about it, all the people were nice and friendly and it was just the kind of atmosphere I like to be in. We stayed right by West Hollywood just above Universal Studios and next to Warner Bros Studios so it was like heaven for me.

Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu

 

Machu Picchu is one of the main reasons we came to Peru, and now it was finally time to go see it. We had spent the whole day before exploring the Sacred Valley so we were pretty tired but we still had the strength to wake up at 4:30 to take a short bus ride. It took about 20 minutes to drive and on the way we saw beautiful mountains that reminded me a lot of the Napali Coast in Kauai.

Florida

Florida

I had been looking forward to go to Florida because I had never been there and it's a popular vacation spot for Icelanders. Many of my friends had been there so I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. They had mostly been to Orlando and I was in Miami and I don't know if theres a big difference between the two places but based on what I've seen I'm pretty sure that Florida won't be one of my favourite places.

Canada and Niagara Falls

Canada and Niagara Falls

When we were at my Aunt's house we decided to take a short weekend trip up to Canada. I was really exited because I had never been there but had always wanted to. It's a 8 hour drive from there house in Barrington to Toronto and it's not really fun for a two year old to sit in a car that long so we slept in Syracuse one night to make the driving easier.
