Travel | Welcome to Miami | Trek America Diary #4

"Party in the city, where the heat is on. All night, on the beach, till the break of dawn."

And that is pretty much what we did. Miami seemed to be a place where not many photos were taken (honestly I've spent an hour trailing through Facebook and whatsapp-ing my trek mates to see if anyone has any photos!) I think this was perhaps because we were excited for a bed and our first big night out on the town!

The day time was spent exploring the shops (mostly H&M) where I manged to finally nab the Lorac Pro Palette I've been dreaming of for years and then heading off to the famous South Beach. Unfortunately like most of the trip so far, the rain was following us! As we arrived at the SoBe, hoping to soak up some rays it started raining and was ready just to cry and face the fact I was going to be going home paler than when I started this trip. However after about 15 minutes of rain, the sun finally made an appearance!! Cue all the cute beach hut photos and an hour of laying on the beach.

After that we head back to the hostel we were staying in for the night, The Freehand. This was not what I had expected for a hostel, in my mind I was picturing almost like simple rooms with metal bunkbeds. This hostel was almost designed to look like cabins on a ship, with the wooden bunkbeds and cute interiors. 8 of us girls were in one room together and luckily we had two showers in our room to get ready for the night.

Once we were ready and had a few pre drinks we headed off to a Cuban restaurant called Havana 1957, where I had one of the best meals I had the whole trip. It was shredded chicken in garlic with refried beans and I was in heaven! I defo need to try more Cuban food soon!

Joelle took us to a bar to start the night off called Kill Your Idol, where it was karaoke night! Cue all of us taking turns to sing after a few more vodka and cokes! It was honestly the funniest thing to see! After that all the girls headed to LIV to dance the night away; only thing was that the drinks here were soooo expensive! $16 for a vodka coke! I nearly fell over when I handed over the cash. After dancing for a good few hours Edie and I escaped back to the hostel to pass out and make the most of having a bed.

I would have really loved to have had more time in Miami to explore the beach more as well as sample more of the nightlife as there was so much to do here!

Have you been to Miami? What was your favourite thing there to do?
