A couple of weeks ago I got invited to go to Miami to visit some friends I made on my trip to South America. Like a lot of people, my knowledge of the city was pretty much informed by Will Smith and Pitbull songs alone, so I was excited to see what it’s really like.
It was super fun, as I had assumed. However, I hadn’t assumed seeing it as a potential place to live – but ever since I left South America, I had been dreaming of not having to choose between living in a place where I am a citizen and living in a place where everybody dances and speaks Spanish. It’s a bit over the top, of course (I was the only girl out at night in flats, and one can easily spend a few hundred bucks on club entrance alone) but I like over the top better than quiet and calm

Oh, just a random Saturday afternoon lap-dance competition held at a bar with a pool. You know, the usual.
Cool art in Miami’s design district.
Shirts inspired by this David Guetta song.
Mango’s is a bar just off South Beach. TONS of fun, I promise you.
Musicians at Mango’s.
Ask a guy to show you around Miami and this is what you get! Haha.
I got my all-night dance extravaganza fix here.
Recovering from that all night dance extravaganza…pretty damn good way to spend a Monday if you ask me!
Fort Myers has a pretty good beach too. Not as pretty as South Beach, but solid nonetheless. If you’re there, there’s a hotel called Lani Kai…sort of a retro resort type place that has this rooftop restaurant with an amazing view (and the tables have benches that rock back and forth!).
