When we arrived in Miami I was THRILLED, because at the time my fave everrrr show was CSI Miami, Horatio in particular was just the best character in my opinion!!
Within a few hours of arriving, I’d been my usual idiot self - I raced Chris to the pool outside, tried to take a short cut, slipped and really banged my shin - so I had a gigantic purple bump for the first week or so of our holiday (I hurt the exact same leg a few months later in Madeira, so thought it was cursed on holidays!!).
Miami was amazing. The first night we got there, we went out and ordered dinner. I ordered a Greek salad from the starters section, and it was the biggest salad I had ever seen. And as soon as it was put in front of me, jet lag hit and I almost fell asleep on top of it! Haha.
We caught a bus to a huge mall, and I couldn’t help myself and bought five pairs of shoes that I somehow managed to squeeze into my case - the cream leopard pair are in the pix below, with my freshly bruised shin!
After Miami we took two more planes, and a boat, to get to Abaco. Our cabin had a hammock overlooking the ocean, it was lovely. We tried to sleep in the hammock one evening and were awoken by some really strange, creepy noises - so back to the cabin we fled!
I can’t believe it’s been 11 years since that trip, and what’s also unbelievable is that I still have a good lot of those clothes (not that they all still fit me!). I’m hoping for more adventures this time, too :-)
So that’s my trip down memory lane :-)
