It was the summer of 2002, and my best friend Candace and I wanted to go on vacation.
We thought long and hard about where we wanted to go, and finally decided to fly to Florida. .
Candace and I started our planning by searching for hotel rooms in the West Palm area, and .
getting tickets for our flight from the internet.
We boarded a plane for Florida in Lexington, Kentucky. We had a layover in Detroit, .
Michigan, which I thought was very interesting. We were heading North to go South! I enjoyed.
flying, so I didn't mind. I sat in the window seat so I could watch the beautiful clouds go .
speeding by, as if they were flying saucers. I also enjoyed the many sites you could see on the .
ground, entire fields looked like little puzzles from way up in the airplane.
Once we arrived in West Palm, we rented a car and started the great search for our hotel.
It took us about an hour to find the hotel, which was only ten minutes from the airport. We saw.
some beautiful neighborhoods including the Kennedy Mansion. What a gorgeous, huge home. I .
can still picture it today. It was a three-story brick home with white post in the front, surrounded.
by a security gate.
The hotel was right around the corner from the circle we had been driving around the .
whole time. We laughed so hard when we finally realized just how close we were to our .
destination. Upon checking into our hotel, we were served champagne. We began to wonder if.
if they thought we were famous. This was my first taste of champagne; it tasted like beer but .
with a very sweet, bubbly taste to it. The fizz in the drink made my nose tingle.
We loved our hotel room; it was large enough for us to live in! There were two huge.
beds, an entertainment center for the television, and as we walked through the room with the .
beds, we found a jacuzzi inside the bathroom. Once we got settled into our room, we decided to .
go hang out by the pool. Candace and I stayed at this hotel for two nights, then proceeded down.
