Hello from the Sunshine State! After checking in at the hotel, we went straight to Denny’s for a late breakfast. I really like the American breakfast at Denny’s, but last time I was at Denny’s, was actually in Tokyo, together with Rieko.
At Denny’s in Orlando, I had a rather strange, but very tasty combo of fried eggs, hash browns, bacon and custard-filled crepes, and Poul had a steak and cheese sandwich.
After lunch, we then went to do some shopping at a nearby outlet mall, before heading back to the hotel for a nap. Our plan was to have dinner at a Japanese restaurant that Julia had recommended, but we were both super jet-lagged and the afternoon nap turned into deep hibernation, and we did not wake up until 2am.
When traveling from Europe or the Middle East to the US, the time difference is a real pain. I wake up at 3am in the morning, and around 5pm US time, I am ready to go to bed. On several occasions, I have missed a night out, because I fell asleep. When I am traveling as a tourist, Asia is actually better, because even though I’ll sleep until noon, I would be awake and rested for the afternoon and the evening.
So instead of dinner at the Japanese restaurant, we ended up ordering food from Burger King:) Though it wasn’t as bad as it sounds, because at Burger King in the US, they have the Impossible Whopper, which is made with the plant-based Impossible patty, and that is what we ordered. It was so good! If I hadn’t known it wasn’t a beef Whopper, I wouldn’t have been able to tell the Impossible Whopper from the real deal.
