Meeting A Friend In Miami

Believe it or not, I had never been to Miami until last week. It is strange. I travel so much around the world yet I often neglect my own country. What I saw was truly wonderful and to say I had an amazing time there would be an understatement.

Luckily for me, this time I was not traveling there for work. I was meeting a friend who writes at BestGunSafeInfo named James. He was hoping to entice me into buying the best gun safe from his gun safe reviews – but I’m not interested. This is one of the many ways in which we differ, and actually it’s pretty incredible we’ve been friends for so long considering we essentially have nothing in common.

He’s a gun enthusiast with a job he goes to so that he can pay the bills. I’m someone who lives to go to work and paying the bills is a bonus.

Anyway, Miami was wonderful and it was great to see it with a friend. We mostly followed TripAdvisor’s 3 day guide with just a few variations. Little Havana was quite an eclectic area and I could definitely see myself spending more time there in the future. It reminded me a bit of New Orleans, does anyone else get that feeling?

We even made out way to Everglades National Park. I always try to take in some of the natural beauty of an area if I can, but it can be so hard when work is centered around the main business districts. But this was a chance I wasn’t going to miss and I’m glad I didn’t. The animals were incredible and I can not believe such a large area has remained untouched.

And of course, we went to the beach. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a beach so packed! Even the ones in Cancun were not this bad. But they were beautiful.

I will definitely be back to Miami – when I get a free moment. It is hard to do these types of trips when I travel so much and to treat it as leisure.
