Visiting the Kennedy Space Centre

We visit the inspring Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral, joined the tour and tried out the Shuttle Launch Experience.

The Hub Baja Grill

Tasty food but expensive (and allergy-inducing) drinks at the Hub Baja Grill. Good if you like "lively atmosphere".

Hellas Bakery

Delicious Greek pastries and coffee can be found here.

The Highlander Cafe

A sunny, cosy cafe serving delicious soups and salads.

Swimming with Manatees! Then off to the best beach in the US

A cafe/store with a large mouthwatering selection of Empanadas, pastries, cakes and other goodies!

Coral Gables to Crystal River

We visit the Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, swing by Lake Okeechobee and finally arrive in Crystal River.

Off to someplace warmer … Miami!

We leave chilly London for warmer climes to begin our road trip around Florida, beginning with Miami.

First entry in 7 months!

Wow, I’ve really been slacking off! Now I need to go back in time and fill in the gaps …
