Southbeach-9

Arguably one of the very best points of our holiday was getting to visit Miami. There is something to be said for daily ocean swims (followed by waffles!) and historic buildings, among plenty of other very, very neat stuff.

On our last day, we decided to go for a swim before our flight back to Vegas. Somehow, somehow, we woke up at 5:30am (!!!) and immediately headed down to the water. It was seriously mind-blowing getting to see the sunrise over the water – and I won’t lie, there was definitely a tear or two in my eyes (I didn’t want to leaaaave).

Really though, I recommend Miami so highly; it was beyond excellent. Staying on South Beach ended up being a brilliant idea – especially as the art deco buildings were one of the reasons I wanted to visit so badly! We actually stayed in the bright yellow building (typical!) below; the Leslie. I’m sorting through the rest of my photos and am going to have a city guide up at some point soon. Stay tuned!

Miami-Beach-Huts-3

Guess where I am?! Miami beach! Well, actually I’m now in bed in my pyjamas – back in New Zealand, but I have spent the last couple of weeks rolling around Miami and Las Vegas. So yeah, the blog has been a little quiet. At least I have a good excuse!

Miami was insane. We spent most of the time in the ocean and even saw a little fish swimming right alongside us. (Actually I almost threw it, thinking it was a bit of seaweed touching me!) Then I saw a jellyfish in the water… aaaand cue going for a pizza lunch. Followed by more ocean time. After 40 minutes of course ; )

It was incredible to finally see Miami in real life. I have been Google imaging (is that even a term?!) pictures of Miami for a solid six months. It all finally felt real when we saw the Miami Lifeguard towers in real life. And it was at the golden hour. Talk about swoon-worthy! This classic Americana one was just it for me. And I wasn’t the only one either! You wouldn’t believe the amount of people snapping away and posting to Instagram here! I can’t complain.. I was one of them after all!
