Welcome to Miami

Got the song stuck in your mind? I sure did!

So, where did I leave off? Ahh yes a ride to the airport where the speed limit signs don't matter!

Before we hopped on the shuttle hubs and I got in a last minute walk around - we wanted to drink in Jamaica with our eyes one more time before we said goodbye mon

When we arrived in Jamaica it was dark so we didn't get to see the amazingness that is the jamaican road ways. Gorgeous views left and right, huge mansions and falling down shanties side by side, wild goats eating grass on the side of the highway and bulls tied to trees next to the sea, Jamaica truly bared all of its soul to us on the drive to the airport.

Our flight to Miami was quick and painless and I must admit I was shocked at how much easier it was to get into America than it was to Jamaica. We had our bags and were through customs within 40 minutes.

We opted to take 2 buses to our bed and breakfast - it was a savings of $25. The b&b was lovely and the host was amazing she even took us on a tour of Miami and Miami beach - so different from both Jamaica and Boston. We saw the art deco buildings and listened to the music and saw some dancers :-)

After we returned back hubs and I decided to go for a walk - apparently my clumsiness is back in full effect once we hit American soil. I stubbed my left big toe on an uneven sidewalk, I'm pretty sure it's broken (it's purple and the nail is already falling off) BUT while hopping onto my right foot I twisted my right ankle. At first I thought it was sprained but I'm going with strained but it is swollen (and most of my right leg is). BUT here's the total Joy part I fell and hit my head on a root and have a little cut and a big bump (no worries Laura I've already made a dr appointment for today).

Thus our walk was cut a bit shorter (though still another 45 minutes as im obnoxious (ask hubs) and refused to call a cab) and we went back to the b&b for an early ish night (still was 10:30 by the time we were back)

Trips and all Miami is gorgeous and I'm so glad we got the chance to check it out. And now I just can NOT wait to get home to the poodle because that little man needs to give me some snuggles!

+++are you clumsy?+++
+++do you love going home from vacation?+++
Because seriously as much as I've enjoyed Jamaica I'm ready to see the little house
