Roaaaaaaaad Trip to Miami b****.. Now who can guess our day song... "she says she likes my watch.. So I put her number in my bold bb.. From Miami to Ibiza" .... Miami is awaiting us!
We decided to hire a car for the journey to save the hassle of getting off at dodgy stops along the way.. The road trip was very fun, with josie's driving skills and my map reading skills we got there safely in one piece and only one wrong turn.. Success I would call that Ally Pally, and you didn't have faith in us! We make a good team.. I'm going to use this supervising and management in my future interviews... No jokes either.
I only have two words for the place we are staying in : s*** HOLE.. bad news! But however, we let this go to the back of our mind to party the night away with the (fit, just for their benefit) New Zealand fire men that we met in Orlando, who had just travelled back from Cancun (very jealous, wish I could party it up in Coco Bongo again) ... We pre drank in their hotel, which was a bit classier than ours, watched Charlie Sheen Roast, or something along those lines which was very funny and consumed a sensible amount of jagers, before heading out. The boys wanted to go to a club called Tantra, and by the name of it, we probs should've clocked on that it wasn't our thing. Entered to it being full of dirty old men flashing their credit cards at anyone with legs. We ordered two vodka and cokes and it came to $23 big ones, but this old perv got his credit card out and paid. So couldn't complain. We spent about twenty minutes in here before leaving... The party spirit had ended by this point so back to our rubbish little room we headed! Bit of a fail for our first night in famous Miami, South Beach.
In the morning, a lie in was well deserved. I woke Josie about tenish to get ready to hit South Beach, Miami to get our tans on! Got into our bikinis, ready to go and opened the door to pouring down rain... RAIN.. In Miami?! Fuming.. It did however, clear up in about ten mins and we walked to the beach where we spend the remainder of our morning! Before coming back home, we were both parched.. So we stopped for a beverage. Josie was sensible, while I was craving a Smoothie.. So that's what I ordered... Wellllll.. I'm pretty sure I consumed all the strawberries in Miami & they blinking charged me that amount as well... Now I need you all to brace yourselves again... You thought $15 for a salad was bad... Try $15 for a strawberry smoothie!! This staying healthy malarky in America is the hardest thing I've ever had to do & it's skinting me out! Think I need to just start to be a fatty... Really considering it?! Maybe not really!
So we went back to our lush room and facetimed the ever funny goonie uoprune and the lovely Sophie Morgan, whom I haven't spoken to since goon left us in Thailand or Sophs since I've been away! So lovely to see their faces and catch the latest drama's back home!
That evening, we headed down stairs to the communal area with our new friend Noel, the tallest beffiest guy who is like a basketball player to have some pre drinks. We met some British Guys from London, who as a group reminded me slightly of JLS.. We went to a club called Cameo and partied the night away!! So I know I mentioned that we paid $23 for two drinks... Try $34... Yes $34 freaking dollars for two drinks!!! Good job that we have gotten in free in every place so far and spent hardly any dollar! Was such a fun night with our fellow Brits! Me and Josie had our first falling out, but we made up in the morning ready for the biggest drama of our trip so far...
Wellllll... In the morning I took a lovely bus ride on my own to the Amtrak station to pick our tickets up... For a start I was the only White person and sober (being not drugged up) person on the bus. Arrived at the station to find our tickets hadn't been booked right by STA at home, just great news! Josie joined later in the day and in total we must have spent about 6hours at the station/travelling. Not happy bunnies! Wasted a whole day in stunning Miami at a train station. After that commotion, a drink was definitely on the cards. Got home to find three quite hunky Serbians to be our new friends.. We had some drinks with them before meeting our Brits again to party....
Mum and Dad, you may want to skip this part... But we met a guy who was minted and offered to take us to the club in his Chrysler (or an extremely minted car) .. He declared his love for me before tipping the bouncer $50 for me and josie to skip the 2 hour long queue to get into mansion!! Success... Haha...
Well, when we got in to Mansion, we met up again with JLS and danced our faces off! On our way home, the temptation of being a fatty hit me and I gave into pizza... It turned out that my red lipstick was pretty much covered all over my face and the pizza man couldn't stop laughing.. Too much kissing, or maybe just too drunk. At least I entertained him hey?!
Next morning, our last full day in Miami.. Me & Jose had decided that we wanted to scrap the Amtrak & hire a car.. They decided to upgrade us for free and now ended up with a car for a month worth $50,000... scared much! Road trip here we come!!!!!
We visited Bayside Harbour To see my favourite type of serial killer, Dexter before heading out for a sophis meal in the evening. We went to a nice italian restaurant and I went for a mammoth steak.. But was worth it.. We had a few cocktails whilst staring at the very sexy waiter. Whilst sitting at the table an American guy approached me and was like "hey, I like your dress & eyes., wanna join me and my friend for drinks?" I mean reaaaaaallly.. We were in the middle of dinner! After dinner, we went to an Irish bar without the weirdo Danny. strangely enough my senses sniffed it out and I remembered the place from the first day! We went to the bar and was immediately brought drinks by a mexican and another guy gave me his card.. I think it was spot out the tourist & attempt to pull night.. Shame I'm not that easily Impressed!
Theeeeeen, we were walking down the strip and bumped into a guy from our hotel, Izzi.. Really cool guy from NYC who joined us from some sisha, apparently called Hookah over here.. And I had the most amazing raspberry mojitos .. Almost as good as my Thailand one! Was really cool just to chill out and chat after a hard core party session in Miami!
Early night now ready for our first big drive of Road Trip Welsh Style... 9ish hour drive to Panama City, Georgia... In Aled's words... "yeeeeeaaaaah Buddy"...
Good night Miami... I will return.. Do not forget about me! I love this city... And beach.. Everything about it!
