nice to hear ya had a great vacationing experience. i'll have to remember that area next time i'm in the florida area, although i've never really had too many problems with florida. i've had a bunch of mixed experiences with vacations and traveling in general. i travel a lot. i had a horrible experience in the philippines. nearly starved there as a vegetarian, i couldn't imagine what it would be like to be vegan there. also, new orleans was terrible for food, great place but terrible for food. toronto, houston, boston, dc, and california were great for vegetarians though.
