Travel Recommendation

Sarasota Classic Car Museum. We adored it. Gorgeous cars informed staff.

Florida

My Recommendation Tip

A great range of vehicles from old to more modern, each with explanatory card about the history of the car. My favourites were the two plum coloured cars near the entrance.
Located just opposite the Ringling Museum / Art Collection with lots of free parking.
But be careful crossing over South Tamiami Drive !!!

Travel Recommendation

Henry B Plant Museum - A must for a fascinating trip back in time.

Tampa

My Recommendation Tip

It was the only place worth recommending in Tampa, but what a place!!!
Housed in the original Tampa Bay Hotel which is now part of the University of Tampa,
this is a beautiful building, constructed/finished in 1891 by H.B.Plant. His idea was to provide luxury holidays for well-off New Yorkers at the end of the 19th Centuary.
He extended the railway track down to southern Florida and provided this wonderful Hotel for their every desire. It failed and he died shortly after it folded, but for the full, very interestingly told story, you'll have to visit the museum.

My Review

Unexpectedly Good.
We have lived in Estepona for 11 years. After 8 years, we finally got around to visiting Selwo. It is a bit pricey to get in (around 25e / 18+) and car parking. If you look at a map of the area, Selwo is sandwiched between the A7 coast road and the AP7 toll road. You think and quot; well, it can't be very big in there. and quot;
You will be wrong. On entering, there is a cheetah enclosure. You then walk towards the safari open buses and lots of peacocks are strutting and displaying all around you. The disappointing thing about the bus is that the commentary by the driver is in machine-gun Spanish and even if you understood this, it sounds like a British Rail announcer. There is an area covered with netting. Looks like a tomato-growing area. It is actually a vast aviary which you walk through on the way out. At the top of the hill, your breath will be taken away, but I won't tell you why !!!
First stop is reptile house; kiosk; shop/cafe and tigers that are separated from you only by thick glass. There is a falcon display as well. When finished here you take the second bus ride through loads of animal areas
and end up at the unimpressive cafeteria. Big, clean but only having pizzas and the like. Going back is fun, going along rope-bridges, or you can wait for the bus.
Do walk through the aviary. Memorable. We live here in Villa Tranquilla, Estepona providing unique apartments in a large quiet villa o/l the ocean. Looking for accommodation - you could do worse.
