    First of all, thanks to all forum members that gave me tips and infos about the USofA! I had a great time traveling from Miami to Austin, here's a short report for anybody interested:

    Miami did not welcome us with the "expected" sunny weather, and throughout Florida it stayed pretty much the same:

    For all the europeans reading, this was probably the narrowest road we traveled on!

    Weather notwithstanding, the beaches in the Gulf area were fantastic, the whiteness of the sand is incredible (have to come back in the summer!)

    The naval air force museum in Pensacola was a great stop, we've been guided trough by a retired test pilot full of interesting insights and stories


    The USS Alabama in Mobile is also worth a stop

    New Orleans - worth stopping few days!



    From here on, I found B&W being much more appropriate to the scenery, will continue with another post in this thread!

    Thanks! That's Houston, been there when I was working for a shipowner, the road articulations impressed me already then. Had to take that shot.

    That's quite the trip. Great shots. The Gulf Coast is quite lovely, hence the "Redneck Riviera" moniker.
