It’s true. This island is awesomely huge. You could probably visit and enjoy all attractions in three days (or maybe two). Well, it’s my assumption. Me and my buddy decided we’d only take the cable car and go to the most-visited place, Universal Studios!
Although we encountered some difficulty locating the ticket counter, we eventually found our way and easily exchanged our vouchers. Let me tell you that I AM acrophobic (extreme fear of heights). And as they say, face your fear. Okay, I thought of this many, many times. I told myself I wouldn’t EVER ride rollercoasters and the like, but this is different (I hope). I will just try.
The entire “trip” took only 15 minutes, but it felt like a lifetime for me. You know what I’m talking about, right? But I survived! Should I rejoice? Maybe. I halfheartedly enjoyed the spectacular view from our seats. I was screaming for a while, then I kept talking to myself. I can do this, I can do this. And I did, I guess.
After that excruciating, nerve-wracking, and gut-wrenching (at least for me) experience, we walked along the crowd. We saw Madame Tussauds along the way, but only took a pic outside.
Then, we were instructed to take the monorail going to USS. It was really cute.
Finally, we’re almost there! But first….
And who doesn’t love chocolate? Especially Hershey’s?!? I bet.
We saw the big Universal globe. Again, one of those famous backdrops. Tell you more on my next post! 😉
