    Firstly a warning. Some of these photos may be offensive to some people. We found them funny and picture worthy. That is all.

    Firstly the lovely view from the Gatwick Travelodge room.

    This is what you get for £23.

    Note the hole where the light should be. :lol:

    And the beautifully coordinated fittings.:rotfl:

    But the beds were comfy though and came with wi-fi. :D

    And the plane. :mental:

    And one excited boy.

    Auntie Jo is bored and we've not even pushed back from the gate yet. :point:

    Plane food - some kind of chicken thing with the worst tasting salad ever. GU pudding nice though.

    And we're there. :mental:

    3 feet from the pool :eek:

    We didn't see any alligators. Saw a turtle and loads of those little lizard things.

    Heard lots of weird sounds though. :unsure:
