I had a layover in Singapore on my way to AND from Malasyia that was approximately 13 hours each time. It was dreadful but I got to know some drunk Australians.

You don't know where I went in Orlando and in the surrounding area.

I can tell you didn't go into Clermont proper because of how you describe it--so um, yes, I do.

I wouldn't go to Florida and not be on the ocean. No dolphins in the lakes. I liked kayaking on the Gulf. Pretty beaches.

But we've been going to different places in winter and haven't been to Florida since 2004.

Obviously you haven't, or you didn't bother to actually look out the window. Florida is VERY diverse in terms of scenery, culture, and history. By the way, I doubt you have ever driven in Florida--perhaps ridden in a car...

I love March in London--little rain and cool but not cold days.
London gets much warmer than Scotland. We've had quite a lot of sunny days in the 70's this summer, hit 78 one day. That's very unusual to get so many nice days. It's a gamble traveling here though and tourists must be prepared for anything - shorts, fleece jacket, raincoat.

Off topic but basically when I was about 14 I was in class and these folk were bragging about all the stuff they owned so I thought i'd sicken them by informing them that we had a Porsche 911 and a Private plane.. Well I never heard the end of it.. They did not believe me (and I don't see why).. And kept bringing it up every darn day.

I would say I get pretty good holidays.
People who owns planes and porsches do NOT fly economy class.

Oh I agree. I was in Dundee and Luechars in late March a number of years ago and it was quite cold. They got sleet the one day. Even in the summer I still bring a warm sweater when visiting the UK.
