USA (NYC - Orlando) Itinerary Day 4 - Avanti Resort and Pio Pio Restaurant

Wanted to eat a quick breakfast around Kips Bay so we dropped by this place called Bread and Butter where they serve salad and breakfast items buffet style. Basically, you pick up a takeaway box, pile the items you want inside the box, take it to the counter and pay according to the weight of your items. We chose a bunch of stuff, ordered coffee and settled down upstairs for a quick casual meal. 

Took a domestic flight on Delta to Orlando! The weather was superb. So glad to be away from the frigid cold in New York City and to feel warm sunshine on my face. Picked up our rental car from Dollar and drove to Avanti Resort on International Drive. This was a cheap, good and clean resort. We came during spring break when families and students descended upon Orlando so the resort was kind of crowded but the stay was definitely still comfortable. And yes, we could see the new Orlando Eye ferris wheel from our resort!

Peruvian food at Pio Pio Restaurant for dinner. Had the rotisserie chicken, beans and fried plantain (essentially fried bananas). The chicken was so tender and juicy! Ended the night with sangria and lots of laughs when we stumbled into the nearby supermarket on a high. A cool wind picked up when we headed back to Avanti and I felt so... present. I had a full belly, some wine in my system and I was hanging out with some of the best people in the world. The roads were empty, the car park was quiet, there was nobody around, and I could actually hear myself think.
