The second time in USA – Part two

We drove to Daytona International Speedway! I’m sure u saw it from multiple movies, for example:

 

Hello Daytona!




 

We could not see any race, in that day there was a cars open market! I saw a lot of strange cars 🙂








 

We also went to the Daytona beach and leaving the city, we enjoyed the sunset 🙂


Crossing Orlando we took a break walking for Magic Kingdom!! Once again, I felt myself as a child ^^







Marco spoke me about Sarasota but I never imagined to see a white beach like this in Florida. I found that Sarasota has the whitest beaches in the USA




We found this.. hey man I hope she said YES!! 😀

 

This is the sand from Sarasota.. I saved it in a glass and took back in my home, in Rome 🙂

 

After Sarasota we drove to the South, beginning to cross the Isle keys! Think about to drive in a street in the middle of the ocean.. it’s unreal!!

I enjoyed Key West, the last isle and its southest point in USA. In one of the last days we took a breakfast with some guest.. I never saw them in front of me before!!

 

These picures are taken from Key West



 

We went back to Miami for our flight to Rome.. once again I felt sad leaving the USA and coming back to home.
Goodbye Florida, me and Marco are still asking about Kokomo Beach, where is it!?

The second time in USA – Part one

In 2009, one year after California and Nevada tour, me and Marco planned a new american trip, this time we tought about 16 days in Florida and Keys isles!
Speaking about 9 years ago, I don’t remember all the details, but I can’t forget that vacation. Even this time It was no easy to deal with more than 500 pictures, so I took a selection about them.

Following ( more or less ) the path we traveled:

 

We began to travel from Miami, renting a car. Some of the places we visited was:

– Nasa complex visitor
– Everglades Nation park
– Orlando
– Sarasota ( the best white beach in the USA )
– Daytona
– Keys Isles ( drive in a single street in the middle of the ocean is amazing )
– Key West ( as the southest point in the USA )

 

Also this time I was funny because I often needed to change my clothes, one day I was cold, another one I wore a t-shirt because it was hot. Driving from South Florida to North Florida and coming back to South again changes everything!

After landing in Miami, from Rome, we rent a car and we went to our hotel. This was the view from our hotel

 

This is Marco near our car!

 

The first place we visited was the famous South Beach. It has beatiful beaches, shopping malls, restaurants, but the real Miami is in the night 🙂







I was curious to see the a couple of places:

– Where Gianni Versace was killed

 

– Where Tony Montana fought during a drug/money exchange. The scene is from Scarface movie

 

This is the place today

 

After two days we left Miami, this was the last view of Miami:

 

We went to Everglades National Park. It’s huge park where u meet more crocodiles than people!
We took an airboat tour, it was very funny!! I never tought about myself in Florida on top of an airboat 😀






( I forgot to say.. in the middle of the places we saw, we usually took a break buying clothes or suovenir. After a few days our car was full as in the picture! )

I could not wait about to see Nasa complex visitor.. it was like a dream!! Here we gooo!!!



I did not expect this much from that complex, because it was full of models, musemus, and historical rooms. Walking for the rooms u are surrounded by models and informations about each mission, WOW! U also see how astronauts eat in the space, how they go to restroom ( everything without gravity ) and how they train before go to the space.






The firt part ends here! The second part will begin from Daytona 😀
