Reflections on Keys

A travel blog entry by browngaltrekker


It was not meant to happen. Florida Keys. In fact, why would I go there in the first place? It's a few hours from Miami, a city that I'm not too fond of with beaches that I find more or less to be mediocre at best unless you fancy partying with friends. But Air Tran got me with their $119 round trip ticket to Fort Lauderdale. You know you are a …

We sadly had to leave Miami on Friday and so picked up our surprisingly nice car (see picture!) and headed down the coast towards the Florida Keys. These 5 islands stretch out from the southern point of Florida and we are staying on the third island called Marathon. Key found a very nice little set of cottages right by the water. For our first full …

Miami -> Marathon

A travel blog entry by wrodar


Sytuacja się normuje. Ania znow wstala o 05.00. Aby nie przeszkadzac naszym gospodarzom, zaraz po sniadaniu poszlismy na spacer po najblizszej okolicy. Wczoraj stalismy w niesamowitych korkach, a dziś nie było widac zywej duszy na ulicy.Ania, uwolniona od cieplych ciuchow, wreszcie mogla swobodnie spacerowac, zbierac kamyki i suche …

Dive Day #2

A travel blog entry by marklivingston


... feet deep. So very easy to navigate, see a lot, and stay close to the boat. Little to no current to speak of too.

On the first dive, we saw a black spotted eel. First I've ever seen. Seen lot's of green moray eels in the past. About half way through the dive, I realized that I forgot to charge the battery on my camera as I couldn't keep it on any more. ...

Sunrise, snorkelling and strippers

A travel blog entry by williamluff


... we order the spicy tuna tower and red pepper conch bisque for starters followed by Tahitian chicken and pork osso bucco for mains. The food is utterly, delightfully delicious but so obscenely huge I have to push it away not even half finished.

In the main room 'Patrick and Debra' entertain us with piano jazz. An array of standards by Sinatra, Patsy Cline, Fats Domino, Barbra Streisand, Gershwin, and Judy Garland are given the over-sincere treatment and then with much fanfare ...

    Rustic stay with perks; a gem of a bargain

    As a solo traveler, the cottage was such a luxury for the price. The cottage comes with a queen bed, TV, shower, microwave and utensils. It has a very cheerful atmosphere inside and outside. Your car has its own space right next to the cabin. Some updates are needed for the bathroom but all in all, it's a great bargain find. Marathon is a great place as a base. The plus is the great fish eateries along Hwy 1.
