    Great location - close to the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International - free shuttle pick up and drop off to / from the airport. Close to strip malls and lots of eating options. Close to public transport, eg the Sun Trolley HOHO for $2-3 all day pass. Close to the cruise terminal for paid shuttle or taxi service. Re the hotel itself - large king size room, very clean, complimentary hot breakfast. Great customer service from the front desk

    Update: The next adventure didn't happen as planned. We had a 3 hour delay leaving Ft Lauderdale due to a flight attendant not showing up for work. It actually got comical or perhaps that was my state of mind. [

    The good news is we have made it to Lima in good fashion! Will check in again ...

    ... inseparable from Grade 6 through 9. When we were 15 we did a bike trip (pedal bikes) from Calgary to Banff to Jasper, much to the horror of my Mother. It was on that bicycle trip that we met a guy on a Honda CBX, a six cylinder motorcycle who was driving the Ice Field Parkway, that chance encounter weighed prominently in my life.

    On Tuesday, we got up early and headed west of the city and over the river. We stopped and had a good look around the Castel Sant’Angel (where the bad guy in Angels and Demons kept the explosive device and hid the cardinals) and headed into the Vatican (where heaps of **** went down in Angels ...

    We made good time that day and arrived at Hall of Fame Marina (so named because of its proximity to the International Swimming Hall of Fame) after about five hours of cruising. It was a little tricky entering the marina due to a strong current and winds picking up but we made it with some excellent driving by my handsome Captain. I must say the ...

I got caesar salad and chips, while Doug got rice and black beans - we all got a small piece of Corn Bread on the side and I have to say it was the best Corn bread I’ve had for years. The total price for the two of us was $10.58 including tax … what a ...
