Yesterday I just landed back in my hometown from a four day girls trip to Miami, Florida. I went with four of my close girlfriends to visit another girlfriend of ours who is currently living in Miami, studying at Keiser College and basically living the dream.
Let’s flashback to Thursday morning, when I got up at the early hours of 4:30 am to catch my 5:45 flight to Montreal. I met my friends and we got to our connection flight which brought us to MIA at 11:45. My first thought in this airport was, if course, my omen: coffee. I went to order a venti mild roast and was surprised to notice the baristas were barely able to speak English, yet alone understand what I was asking for when I mentioned I would like a splash of soy milk with my coffee. We had a similar issue when speaking with the Uber driver who would drive us to Sabrina’s home; he could barely speak English. The demographic in Miami, I learned, is a majority of Spanish and Latinos and the most commonly spoken language is Spanish. Thankfully my one friend studied Spanish and was able to translate some basic terms and sentences for us.
When we arrived to Sabrina’s condo, we were blown away with th complex. She rents a two bedroom condo which is fully equipped with an outdoor pool, jacuzzi hot tub, gym, study room and theatre entertainment room. Her own apartment is on the ground floor and is decorated in the typical Sabrina style of Parisian m-Audrey-Hepburn chic. We spent the first day by the pool and made sangria. That night we went out to LIV nightclub in Miami and got bottle service which did not disappoint.
The second day we decided to spend on the beach and walk around downtown Miami before going to our favorite American restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory. The beach was so nice and the sun did its job in keeping us happy, warm and tan. That evening we went out to Story night club where DJ Alesso was the guest. The music was wild and the drinks were cold – but most of all, we had a blast. The club is upscale and clean, with a photobooth linked to Instagram to post your crew instantly. Love the venue and would definitely rate it 9/10.
