Miami
Well this wont be the longest blog entry or maybe its long..but the only one!
just a little recap of our trip...since its almost a year ago! And I wont remember all details.
This started out as me wanting to go travelling for my birthday!!!my 30th!!!And had my eyes set on returning to Florida..where I spent a wonderful year celebrating the new Millennium with Mickey and friends in 2000,working at EPCOT.
Well Florida was set and then we decided on Jamaica ..and then suddenly Kokomo came into our minds!well we have done Bahamas earlier..
So now it ended up with Jamaica,Florida..and two of us went to Aruba as well..sadly not me!!but maybe another time!(Just aswell as when we went home I have caught the famous H1N1 flu!better off being home sick than in Aruba :-) )

The trip started out a tad bit bumpy.
..when my friend never got here luggage on arrival in Miami!!So we had to go out and buy clothes our first day there..not the worst thing to do...:-)and we did a trip to the Everglades..that supposedly should last 4 hours..and we were back in town after half of those 4!!but still had fun..and saw plenty of aligators..and got to hold one!!
Still no luggage when we got back to the hotel...and it didnt turn up that day at all..so we did some more shopping!
The next morning..we got a phone from Philadelphia..they had found the missing bag...and they sent it straight on to Jamaica and Montego Bay..where we headed that morning!
15 minutes after landing..we had all our bags...and where ready to have some fun!

The taxi ride to our hotel..told us we were in for something brand new.

...have never seen such driving as there is in Jamaica...a whole adventure on its own..we almost ran over a man within 5 minutes of leaving the airport..and our driver didnt brake at all!!!
Spent our to first days at the Sunset Beach Resort and Spa,Montego Bay.All inclusive..is a rather fun thing....and they had a lovely spa there. But think my favorite would be the pool bar!!might have to write more about this hotel later on!!

Then we spent 4 days on the west coast,Negril!We did actually rent a car and drive ourselves....which was a looong and fun story really!!
Our first offer on arriving in Negril..was a guy offering us Ganja!!we didnt have any...but there where plenty of those who did.
Gator!!!

Stayed at Legends,which was a cheap but still nice enough hotel..a bit different after  our all inclusive adventure in MoBay..but good still!
We even had our own guard to cross the road..since the rooms were divided on both sides of the main road through Negril..but the guards were great!and we had a fun time..people are so welcoming and friendly in Jamaica..thats my impression at least.

On July 4 we headed back to Miami,and celebrated the night at South Beach..watching the fireworks!!!
The next day we set off down the Florida Keys..absolutely one of my favorite places on this planet!!this my 4 visit..and not my last!
Spent a couple of days in Key West.Having dinner at Hard Rock is a must...great memories from earlier visits..and they didnt let us down this time around either.
My friend May:-)
Had a fun night out at Sloppy Joe`s to finish it off.

On our way up the Keys again..we stopped at The Famous Tiki Bar...for our Kokomo shots!!

The last days on our trip..and my birthday was spent in Orlando!
Was lovely to see our managers from back at Epcot,was great fun to be back at Epcot and World showcase..and off course we had to watch the Illuminations! Did a fair bit of shopping too...alway fun with Outlet malls!!not so much fun..when flying home..and having to pay for all of it in overweight!!!but great times still.The last thing worth mentioning Ale House..and the best dessert ever..Capt`n Jack`s Buried Treasure!!!

Soo much could be said about each and every day on this trip..but I will do better next time I head off..and write it as we go along!!
Safe travels everyone:-)
