|SOUTH BEACH MIAMI- one of the city's iconic lifeguard huts|
If he could have seen the way I climbed out of my Grandma’s pick up van, stumbled over the kerb, snapped my sandal, flashed my knickers and burst open my suitcase as I arrived, he’d have known he had a trusty companion in his midst.
I was reuniting with some of the guys from camp and walking into that room I suspected this might not be the most glamourous few weeks.
Staying near to South Beach can be pretty costly which is why we had opted to stay further inland. This distance didn’t stop me and my “posse” from making our way there every day though. The bus was easy enough to catch and took us across town in no time.
A massive piece of Bex FYI that I stick firmly to is avoid taking taxis. Wherever you are in the world one of the best ways to see a place and get a taste for its true culture is to board that bus. It may seem scary but if you check your info and ask for help you’ll be fine, and it's often a lot cheaper. And if you get lost who cares? You’re exploring and that’s what traveling is all about.
My trip in Miami was short and sweet. It gave me enough time to do a few Baywatch runs down the beach, hit the malls for yet more shopping and enjoy some beachside boogies. Although there's a lot more things that could be done in Miami after a few days in the sunshine and glamour I was all set. I had seen all I wanted and know what I had always thought...Miami is pretty cool. You were right Will.
