Chadd tours Florida!

During the holidays, Chadd enjoyed spending time in the cities of Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, Florida with Aria Zutshi and her family!

Chadd began his vacation in Orlando where he took many trips down the lazy river at Explorer Island with Aria and her sister, CFE alumni, Mira.  He enjoyed time in the cabana when the sun became too hot to handle.    He also loved resting on Aria’s shoulders and simply taking in the view around him.

Chadd did think the drive down to South Florida from Orlando was a bit boring because the road is flat with not much to see.  Upon reaching Ft. Lauderdale and Aria’s grandparent’s house, Chadd was excited to jump into their pool and take a swim.   Chadd then took multiple trips to South Florida’s  beaches. There he was even able to take a close-up look at jelly fish that had washed on shore. 

Chadd also visited a Cuban bakery where he was able to sample croquettes and pastelitos.  Since Aria is a serious Miami Heat fan, she couldn’t resist asking Chadd  to stop at a Miami Heat store on his trip.  Chadd was also fascinated  by his visit to Shark Valley at the Everglades National Park in Miami.   

On the trip back to PA, Chadd thought Miami International Airport  was too large and couldn’t believe it took him 45 minutes to get to his gate even though he took a sky train.  Chadd is quite happy to be back home in PA but wishes he brought South Florida’s temperatures with him.
