Jan 11, 2014 - Miami Everglades RV resort

What a ride we had from Daytona to Miami !!! Daytona was very rainy when we left and we were 1/2 way to miami when the clouds opened up OMG !!!! Buckets of rain were coming down , instant flash flooding, car accidents everywhere , roads closed and then ..,..... Our windshield wipers stopped working . when your driving a 37 ft RVs & towing a car , you can't pull over to the side of the road quickly, esp when you can't see. Poor Pete, we slowly took the very next exit and pulled into a large truck stop. One hundred phone calls and 2 hrs later...

Jan 8, 2014 - Another sea day - how we are enjoying ourselves!

Tuesday 7 January Day 7 - Sea day travelling between Cuba and Haiti towards Costa Rica We're getting into a routine now. It's been really smooth sailing with barely a ripple and glorious sunny days so the cruising is perfect. We've been having breakfast (sensible you'll be glad to hear) in our rooms every morning at half six and that then encourages us to get up and going. John does his walk around the deck and visits the gym while I have my swim. A lady noticed my routine this morning and suggested we got a group together to to the...

Jan 6, 2014 - At sea

Sunday 5 January Day 5 - We leave Fort Lauderdale We were in real anticipation mode this morning. We'd done most of our packing up yesterday so had time to have a relaxed breakfast, settle our bill and wait for our transport to the docks. The transport arrived an hour early so I'm glad we were organised. There was an amazing array of ships in the various docks. The driver said it could accommodate up to 20 cruise ships at a time (Gold Coast go eat your heart out!). There were about eight in ranging from our little MV Prinsendam with 780...

Jan 4, 2014 - Miami Seaquarium

Saturday 4 January Day 4 - Fort Lauderdale The one thing i love about being married to John is the way we share everything! I woke with his cold so I'm going to be coughing and spluttering for the five days that he did! We had been going to drive South to Key Largo but I must admit that seemed so we decided to drive into Miami and go to Key Biscayne on the Miami Peninsula. It was meant to be about 35 miles so that seemed a reasonable distance to drive. However the weather was pretty ordinary, cool, windy and drizzly. It looked as though...

Jan 3, 2014 - Fort Lauderdale

Thursday 2 January Fort Lauderdale We both slept remarkably well and got up at half seven feeling reasonably refreshed. I was surprised that the jet lag wasn't that bad. John was quite chirpy and seems to have got rid of his worst cold symptoms. We also hunted for John's specs but to no avail. We reported the loss to hotel reception and security and then phoned the transfer company in case he left it in the car last night. Eventually I suppose he'll have to check with the airlines. Before breakfast we looked into reception to see about our...

Jan 1, 2014 - Arrival at Fort Lauderdale

The flight didn't leave until 11.45pm which was was nearly 45 minutes late but at least we were comfortable. There's always concern about late departures causing problems with getting later flights. Still we had quite a lot of time to deal with things at LAX so we weren't worried. Our seats were comfortable on the plane and it was a real bonus having the ability to lie out flat in the seat, which converted to a full length bed at the press of a button when it came time to sleep. That has spoiled us for travelling cattle class on long...

Dec 20, 2013 - Miami, Florida

Days 290 - 291 of The Big Trip December 19 - The goal was to be on the road, at a reasonable hour, because we had almost 200 miles to drive. That didn't happen, because we had a jack that wouldn't come up and it took several efforts to finally get it to stow. We left just at 11:00am, so we made the check-out time. There are two rules(?) we usually follow. We try to avoid interstate highways and we usually avoid toll roads. On this day, we did both. With our late start, we decided we needed to make time, so started out on I-95. About an...

Dec 16, 2013 - It's finally here!

There will be at least one entry. Packed and ready to go after running around gathering and shedding "stuff"; still have more than I'd like but if it fits it goes. With three cameras I barely know how to operate but weigh a bloody ton, it should be interesting.

Dec 6, 2013 - December in Florida

As usual, I'm off to Florida for the holidays. I flew from Guayaquil to Panama to Miami. My travels will take me to Pembroke Pines, Fort Myers, and Sarasota to visit friends and see my family. This weekend I visited Barb DiGirolamo Riley in Pembroke Pines. We have been friends since grade school in Cicero, Illinois. Barb is a clothes horse and showed me some of her new purchases. On Sunday she planned a card party which included her mother Betty, her daughter Charlotte, Vicky Newson who is also from Cicero, and me.

2013 In Ecuador

Dec 1, 2013 - 7-Day Caribbean Cruise #2

On this cruise on the Carnival Conquest, we were spirited off to Cozumel, Belize, Honduras, and the Cayman Islands. Most evenings on the ship we ended up at the martini bar and then the pub or comedy show. Like clockwork, at the same time our newly married friends Matt& Olivia would show up to the martini bar as well and we spent quite a bit of time chatting with them. Olivia figured we kept meeting up so often that it must be fate we become FB friends so now we have friends in Austrailia should we get to Sydney in our travels.

Living the Dream

Nov 23, 2013 - Miami

Leuke sightseeing tour gemaakt met de hop on and hop off bus. Met Big Bus Tours de Beach loop and City loop gedaan en bij Bayside Park Station een rondje met de Metromover. Op deze manier hebben we in één dag veel van Miami gezien. 's Avonds over de verlichte en drukke Ocean Drive gewandeld en bij Subway.

Nov 22, 2013 - Key Largo => Miami

De Keys weer verlaten en via Everglades National Park naar Miami Beach gereden. In de Everglades de Anhinga Trail gelopen, hier diverse mooie vogelsoorten en Alligators van dichtbij gezien. Aansluitend naar Miami Beach gereden en helaas de fijne auto ingeleverd waarmee we ca. 2000 km hebben gereden. Ons laatste hotel, The Savoy, ligt aan Ocean Drive middenin het Art Deco District aan het strand. Net lekker gegeten bij TGI Friday's.
