WELCOME TO MIAMI!
Exactly one year ago I went with my family to Miami. We spent there four amazing days. So we went shopping, made a trip to the Everglades Alligator Farm, where we held a baby aligator in our hands!! Then we discovered some different parts of Miami like Little Havana and visited for the first time a baseball stadium.
After that we flew to the Bahamas. We spent three days on Paradise Island in the amazing Hotel Atlantis. There we had the amusement to swim with dolphins and saw lots of water-animals in giant aquariums! That was really breathtaking! Then we spent another four days on a little island called Cat Island. We slept in a little stone bungalow and enjoyed our meals directly to the ocean. That was literarly ‘another day in paradise’!
For the third part of our vacation we went to New York City. There we stood in the Hotel Marriot in the middle of the Times Square! Of course we did shopping again. 😉 But we also explored Little Italy and Chinatown, made a boat-tour on the Hudson River and took some snapshots of Lady Liberty. We also had lots of fun at Madame Tussauds, the wax figures were really scary because sometimes they looked pretty real! Another day we visited the 9/11 Memorial and in the evening the musical Jersey Boys. By chance I met a friend from my school so we had breakfast at starbucks together and talked about each other experiences.
One day we visited the uncle of my mother in Bethpage, New York. It was really interesting to hear the differences of the lifestyle in the USA compared to Italy and Switzerland from where we came from. In the evening we went back to NYC and met a friend of my father and his daughter. We had an incredible view over the central park from their appartement! For dinner we went to an amazing restaurant called Beauty and Essex which I can really recommend!
I really miss those days and hope I’ll be back there soon!
