Florida Everglades stretch for miles…
The “River of Grass” as the Everglades are sometimes named, encompasses the southern tip of Florida. As such, it is the point you must pass through to reach Key Largo and your ride down the Overseas Highway. The Everglades stretch for miles, however.

Winter in Calgary      

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Few days ago I took opportunity to spend two days on the business trip to Calgary.  There was a unique Storage Networking conference that I wanted to attend. At the same time I was planning to take a few pictures of this beautiful Canadian city and write few words about it on my blog site.

No visit to South Florida is complete without a journey to Key West!
The ride from Miami to Key West took around 4 hours in our rental car, from which 3 hours were crossing the Florida Keys with amazing blue water below the bridges we were riding. We left Miami early in the morning so that we can travel during the day light, because this is very scenic drive.

Wind, rain and dark skies make for lousy weekend
The IBM conference I was attending last week in Miami ended on Friday, and Vera and I made plans for the weekend. We rented a car and traveled south, all the way to Key West. The Florida Keys are the southernmost tropical islands in Florida that you can actually drive to from mainland Florida. Key West, the southernmost Key in the US, sits at the end of the Keys, just 90 miles (144 km) from the coast of Cuba.
