Yea, that would be something, keep us informed about your plans.

Well, you know me - I am able to see florida during one weekend ;-). One week is plenty of time.

I do not have any plans, as I have two more people with me with different needs, but Orlando seems to be our base. We are 100% sure going to visit the Keys, Everglades, I would like to go snorkling some place good... I guess beaches in the west are better than the Atlantic coast... Some shopping will take place for sure in Orlando or Miami.

There is plenty of time until June :-), any advices "what to see" appreciated.

When you are in the Keys, take a look at John Pennenkamp Coral Reef State Park. See the link below - it is a wonderful experience.

Looks nice. I have been snorking on coral reef for my first time this year, on Borneo, so I hope to repeat next year in Florida. I guess there are more places to go.

Alexxi, you wrote....I have been snorking on coral reef for my first time this year, on Borneo, so I hope to repeat next year in Florida.

Corrected version..I went SNORKELING on A(because we haven't mentioned it yet, we don't know which coral reef, indefiinite) coral reef for the/my first time, in Borneo(we do something IN a country, though we do something ON an island), so I hope to do it again next year.

I thought about John Pennekamp park too, since it's just south of Miami on the way to the Keys.

For the really adventurous there is always the Dry Tortugas...

Florida trip is getting complicated :-)... Delta canceled all flights Budapest-New York... nice... Expedia is not very helpful... neither is Delta... call in one month is what they say...

Really great.

Why BUD instead of PRG? Meeting people there I guess.

Should anyone be interested in my recent trip, I just selected photos from my last week in Uzbekistan:

I guess worst place to live I have ever been - kind of Cuba, open for tourists yet very corrupt dictatorship... Yet on photos it does not look like it.
