Highlights: Running into a former school and cricket team friend
We got up early for our longest non-overnight bus ride of 7 hours to Orlando. I should probably say Kissimmee since that was the bus station and hostel’s actual address.
Unbelievably we run into Sean Kiley who both Jon and I played cricket with at Salesian College and who was one year between as both. Sean introduced us to two other Sunbury boys. It turns out it is a very small world indeed. Our group ended up playing a few hands of ‘assy’ as we caught up.
Better still was the news that there is a planned space launch on Thursday night while we are still here. A once in a lifetime chance with any luck. With this in mind we purchased a 4 Day Disney World pass with an option to sell back a day for $30 if we end up going to a space launch. So we should either see a shuttle launch or spend an extra day in one of the Disney Parks.
