Miami Beach is a very cool place. We had a great hotel at the Miami Beach Resort & Spa. It was right on the beach although we did not really spend too much time in the ocean as it had a great pool and bar beachside. The shopping in Miami is absolutely awesome too. Yes I did manage to get the gorse out of my pocket for once and we all had a bit of a spend up. My new silver handbag (think suitcase girls) takes the cake though. The weather here has been amazing so all we have done for our last 4 days is eat, drink, swim and shop. What more could anyone want?
Grant and I even managed a night out at a very cool nightclub Mokai. Check it out at www.mokaimiami.com although it was $20 for 2 x Coronas! Plus the door charge, plus the 4 taxi rides (grant couldn't get in first time round in shorts).
We did have one mission though and that was to sell the car. Ahhhh the car, it did us very well! Although I think we were lucky to get as far as we did in it. The transmission is about to blow up in it. Traveling for the last month we have had a very distinct shudder which progressively got worse! At one stage we thought we would have to take the plates off and leave it in a car park. But we managed to flick it on for $500. The then guy stiffed spud and only gave in $425! But we just took the money and ran to the bus stop!
So now I sit here in Miami international airport waiting for our 3pm flight to Frankfurt then on to London. I can not believe 3 months have passed already since leaving New Zealand. We have had the most amazing time here and if we were getting on a plane to come home it has already been a trip of a lifetime. It is very exciting to think the next travelblog I write will be from somewhere in England!
