    I used to live in Florida

    before relocating to Texas for my work. I miss the sun, the ocean, the palm trees, swimming eight months of the year and the people. I hope to move back at some point. For now, I have to be happy with visits.

    My Serendipity

    I started traveling when I was very young. My hometown felt tight and I couldn't wait to get away from my parents, so I looked for every  available job that could take me abroad. I managed to graduate from university and became a journalist: of course I picked foreign politics...

    Florida Vacations Rock! Day 7 - Dog Beach

    We learned early on that dogs are not allowed on many of the beaches in Florida.  This is a really bummer as our dog travels nearly everywhere with us.  That said, I also understand why they may not be welcome on the beaches.  I do get it, just don't like it.The good news is...

    Florida Vacations Rock! Day 3 - The Birds

    I read a post on EP sometime back about a secluded beach in SW Florida. Although the post said nothing about it being secluded enough for some nudie time, I figured I'd give it a try. I'm a huge nude sunbathing fan and was hoping for the best. The post mentioned there being only...

    I have spent a good amount of time in Florida,

    as I have family there. Every time that I go there, I'm amazed with how beautiful the beaches are. I love the palm fronds swaying in the wind. I love how water flows through the coastal cities, boats calmly floating at their docks. I've spent my whole life in Pittsburgh and...

    Moving To Florida Soon....

    I currently live in South Carolina but I hate it here. My dad lives in the Tampa area so I'm planning to move closer to him. I am really looking forward to it! Also going on a trip in a few weeks to visit him too. Any chance to get out of this shithole of a state, I take it!!
