History, fun and space feeling

Here in Germany "Florida" is an equivalent for "holiday feeling", but also for "winter retreat for the elderly".

I was never much into explicitly touristy areas, so I never thought, Florida was a must see destination for me.

When my friends invited me to go to Florida with them, I happily accepted and I sure am glad I went!

We visited Disneyworld (of course!!!), St. Augustine and Cape Canaveral and that definitely was VERY interesting!

    so glad you continued past Disney. St. Augustine is a favorite of mine. We saw Sally Ride take off at Canaveral space center. Amazing.

    What's new, Christine? Wow, where did you find these old Florida pics? The horse and buggy touts still lurk near St. Augustine's Castillo, the Apollo rockets still stand, and a day at Disney still takes an entire allowance. Not much change since you left!

    Excellent tips: I didn't know about St. Augustine, looks a little bit European in contrast to the nest two :-)))

    The Space Center is interesting, but Disneyworld even more! (Always kids, eh?)

    Great little page here, Christine. I liked St. Augustine as well, will have to get back to see NASA.

    Very good descriptions! Did you see a launch at Cape Canaveral?
