My Adventure at Universal Studios

Entrance On my second day in Orlando, June 30th, 2021, we went to have fun at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure ( https://www.universalorlando.com ). We got there around 10:30 am and I thought the parking was really organized, because there were instructions and staff helping the cars to park and the spaces were filling out in sequence, so you don’t have to get crazy looking for a spot. Since we only had the snack from the hotel, we decided to have brunch at Panda Express. There were different restaurant options at Universal, including Bigfire, Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food, Cowfish, Hard Rock Cafe, and others.                        Universal Orlando Resort Entrance         On the way to Islands of Adventure Park/Rides After eating, we started walking in the direction of the Islands of Adventure park. The first section of the park was the Marvel rides. The first ride we tried was the Doctor Doom's Fearfall with a 35-min waiting line. Then, we went on Sku

Top 3 Restaurants in Eagan, MN

Hello everyone! If you live in Minnesota or if you are planning to visit MN any time soon, you should consider going to the city of Eagan and trying out these restaurants. These three restaurants: Doolittle Woodfire Grill, Bay Leaf, and Teresa’s will provide American, Indian, and Mexican delicious cuisine and bring the excellent taste of each country at a reasonable price and in a beautiful environment.

1. Doolittle Woodfire Grill (American) 


Doolittle’s is a great American restaurant located in Cliff Road with friendly staff and awesome food. I took my boyfriend for lunch on his birthday and everything work out well to be a surprise. We had “Chicken Wild Rice Soup” as starters and “Rib-eye Steak” (steak served with green beans and baby red potatoes) as the main dish. I made a reservation 4 days in advance and they allowed me to bring a cake. On the reserved date, I got there before my boyfriend so the host got the cake and prepared it for the waitress to bring to our table right after lunch. We sang happy birthday to him and he was so happy that even other customers around us were singing and wishing him. This is my top 1 restaurant due to an amazing experience.

2. Bay Leaf

    

        Bay Leaf is an Indian restaurant located in Town Centre Dr with amazing food that tastes homemade (no matter what you choose from the menu). That’s what I love the most about them, eating outside but still feeling at home. During lunchtime between 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, you will have a variety of food options for the buffet. During dinner time, after 5:00 pm, you will be able to order anything from the menu. My favorite meal is the Szechuan Chicken Fried Rice. Some of the menu options I have tried include chicken and egg fried rice, chicken, goat, and lamb biryani, chicken tikka masala. I love to drink masala chai and mango lassi.

3. Teresa’s 


Teresa’s is a Mexican restaurant located in Diffley road by the side of the math learning center, Mathnasium. My favorite dish is definitely the “Fajitas Mexicanas”, which is steak grilled with onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, and queso (cheese). Some of my other favorites include arroz con pollo (grilled chicken with rice, guacamole, cheese, and lettuce; as well as the Philly steak burrito. If you want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo today, Teresa’s is a great place to have fun with friends and family while eating delicious food.

4 Essential Travel Items

4 Essential Travel Items      Hello everyone! If you are planning to travel any time soon, you should consider buying these four items for your trip because they will be really helpful. These items will make your life easier in a way that you don’t need others taking your pictures, don’t need to be worried about low your phone battery is or losing something on your trip, or having your clothes always fresh.  Selfie stick & Tripod      I got this self-stick/tripod on Amazon, and it was a great purchase before my trip to LA. It comes with a remote that connects to the phone, and I did not have to worry about asking people to take my pictures. It is 40 inches extendable, so I thought the height was good enough for my pictures. The remote worked well, and I had no problems being at a certain distance from my phone, they kept connected, and the remote was charged for a long time. These are some of the pictures I took with the tripod version: You can buy this item here: https://a

Museums in Hollywood

            If you are planning to travel to Hollywood, you should visit the following museums as part of your trip. They are located close to each other, in my experience, I was able to visit all three on the same day. I would recommend to visit one museum per day, or two in a day, just to enjoy more and have a relaxing experience and appreciate all the art pieces exposed. Madame Tussauds Hollywood Address: 6933 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028             Madame Tussauds is located on Hollywood Blvd and the museum has three floors. People usually spend one to two hours enjoying this attraction. When visiting the website, you can see there are two packages: a standard ticket and the ultimate experience. The Standard Ticket when bought online you can save over $10, the online price is $19.99 and when purchasing at the museum is $30.95. This includes entry to Marvel Superheroes 4D and it is a day access ticket (any time). The Ultimate Experience is a VIP package that

Eight Hours in Orlando

It was July 2017 when I bought my tickets to visit my family in Brazil during the winter break. My classes would be done in the first week of December, so I wanted to buy the tickets at a reasonable price as soon as possible. I would have a layover of eight hours in Florida, but I didn't pay attention to the airport, so I thought it was Miami since I've been there all the time between my flights from Brazil to Minnesota and vice versa. At the end of November, I wanted to check my layovers to let my mom know about everything, and I realized I was actually going to Orlando. So I searched how far would be the airport from Disney World, and it would range from 20 to 25 minutes. I realized I had my perfect chance to get to see Disney World, and after talking to my mom about it, she was afraid I would not have enough time to enjoy the park and catch my flight, but I convinced her and bought my ticket online.
