During a more than one year stay, from October 2000 to January 2002, we (myself, my wife and our daughter) learnt to love Florida, its climate, nature, people and attitude. In September 2000 I was offered a job in US, working for Ericsson Inc as an ASIC designer. A company called Starburst located in Orlando performed the ASIC design project. Working for Starburst was like coming home. You felt like you belonged to the family from the first day you entered the company door. The RTL design was done at Ericsson in Stockholm Sweden and Starburst did all the backend work, synthesizing the design, running timing verification and generating all test vectors. It was a busy but fantastic year and it was sad when we had to leave Florida to return to Sweden in January 2002. When we came to Stockholm it was -10C and two feet of snow on the ground.
What we liked best about Florida were the gorgeous beaches. The first thing we did was to buy the book Florida Beachesto start exploring all the places. The front page of the book says "The Only Guide to the Best Places to Eat, Stay, Swim, and Play on Every Beach in the Sunshine State". With the help of this book we went to beaches all over Florida from the Panhandle down to the Keys.
There are so many beautiful beaches in Florida but here are some we liked the most.
