Visual Diary Anna: Enjoying Orlando
Anna is NSMBL’s co-founder and strives to provide women from all over the world with the most recent fashion news, the best places to shop, all new must haves in the world of fashion and beauty and the best travel tips. This time, she took a trip to Orlando and searched for the best hotspots to share with our readers.
‘September has been such an amazing month for NSMBL so far! My schedule has never been more chaotic, but I also must say I’ve never enjoyed being busy as much as I am enjoying it now. In less than four weeks, I traveled to five different destinations. From New York to London, from London to Orlando, after that Milan and finally closing the month off in Paris. Between all the Fashion Week madness of September, I took some time off to visit the amazing Orlando, Florida. It felt really great to escape all the insanity and to be adventurous and explore all the amazing activities Orlando has to offer.
You must be wondering what the reason was for my short, great escape. Together with Visit Orlando I spent the entire trip looking for the best hotspots to share with our readers. As it turns out, the city has so much more to offer than the amusement parks that Orlando is known for. The coming weeks you can read everything about our adventures in Orlando on NSMBL, starting with a massive personal visual diary filled with photos and information I gathered during my visit here.’

For years and years, Orlando has been known as one of the top cities in the world to travel to with your family. The city is filled with amusement parks; you can find pretty much any park offering any kind of genre, so there is something to be seen for everyone. Despite our love for parks (they give us that amazing nostalgic feeling we long for once in a while), most of the parks scream over the top amusement, and sometimes a girl just wants to get away, escape the big city and get lost in adventure. This is the exact reason why we decided to explore Orlando from a completely different perspective.
For an entire week, we explored Orlando like an Orlando local would explore the city. Our theme for this trip was a real ‘Girlfriends Getaway’, a place you and your girlfriends can book a trip to and really enjoy the surroundings and fun the city has to offer. No amusement parks, but lots of adventurous outings such as a balloon ride, a safari, fun entertainment and of course lots of shopping. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the cultural fun, so we added a few museums to the mix and we made sure we dined at the best restaurants the city has to offer. Below you can find a selection of what kept us busy all week, but keep checking NSMBL for more updates.
Isn’t this view amazing? It doesn’t really get much better than this…
