Up Gainesville Orlando Tampa





The sunshine state of the United States is located in the very south-east of the country with a shape of a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Florida is not part of the so-called "south" (to which Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi count), but is more its own because of the influence from South America (especially Miami and the Keys). Quite famous are the orange and grapefruit plantations, which count to the largest in  the United States. I live in Gainesville in the northern part of Florida since August 2004 working and studying at the University of Florida. So far, I didn't have the chance to experience the famous beaches despite two short trips to Tampa and St. Augustine, but I'm working on that.
