Travel Day to Miami

Left Denver to Miami via Houston at 8am and arrived in at 4pm local time. As we flew over the Gulf of Mexico I saw New Orleans and the pretty Florida Coast and them the Everglades. One of my 3 suitcases was delayed and arrived in via American Airlines at 4.30pm. My suitcase were then all collected by Trinity Church. I had to go to 2nd floor terminal G gate 17 and caught a free shuttle to my hostel Posh Beach Miami. It comes every hour and I caught the 6pm one., which was just on dark. t was only abut 30 minutes ride to South Beach across bridges over big expanses of water and past the port with big cruise ships docked.

My shuttle let me off over the road from my hostel which was on the 3rd floor of na art decor building in the historic art decor district. A star member from the neighbouring Whitelaw Hotel let me into the building where I caught the elevator up to the 3rd floor to check in.

It is a very new modern boutique hostel with pool and deck, nice kitchen communal area and downstairs an open plan with 3 big interjoined dormitories and 2 bathrooms. with hair dryers supplied. it was very clean , my bed had a lamp and locker I scored a bottom bunk. I paid about $35 USD for the first night as that was booked through hostel world and then $60 USD a night for the next 2 nights as that was booked through Booking.com.

On the corner of my street was a tours office so i went in and booked 4 tours which made it much cheaper ...all for only $116. Tuesday afternoon I go on a 4 hour bus and boat tour Wednesday is an all day tour from 7am to 10pm to Key west Thursday is a 4 hour tour to the Everglades

! short block and I was on Ocean Road at the beach with a park alongside the beach and on the other side bustling brightly lit attractive rat decor hotels and restaurants - full of people drinking cocktails out of massive bowl cups , latino music and lost of nic seafood. I had some calamari and cold local fish salad and a tonic water in a massive cup for dinner.
