Hello new here from Florida

Hello everybody,

I'm new to this forum and excited to meet new people. So a little bit about myself, I've been an outdoors man all my life. Anything that involves being in the sun and outside is enjoyable. Building has been my specialty since I started building sheds and tree houses as a teenager. Ever since then I haven't been able to put down a hammer to save my life. If I'm not building something I'm either fishing or bicycling on my spare time. Here in Florida there are wonderful nature trails that stretch thousands of square miles with wild life at every direction. On top of that the beautiful beaches are flocking with fish and every new fishing excursion packs a surprise of what might be on the other end of your line. I recently retired from my cabinet installation company and now ready to travel all around the world... any recommendations?

If you like English people, check out SAGA. We have met several Americans on their holidays. Last year met lovely couple from Wisconsin on our cruise on Saga Ruby to Canaries.

Saga specialises in holidays for seniors, so no teen agers. We are off on a cruise in Med in June. Looking forward to seeing Venice and Rome.

If you want to check out a hotel, B&B, Restaurant any where in the world visit tripadvisor site. They are our bible for travel.

You could first look at your local places. When we were in Florida, particularly liked Hawks Cay resort down near Marathon and also Edegwater Beach at Naples. In the Caribbean, then Bel Jou, St Lucia which is a Saga hotel.
Let us all know your adventures.

I spent the first week of last November in Pfronten, Germany.
Lot's of Bavarian style archetecure and lot's and lot's of great food.
Great place to visit. It is also the beginning of ski country for the Alps. Walking distance from the Austrian border.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???
