Well, a little under a week. We drove down to Orlando on Sunday morning and right now, we’re waiting on our flight to Atlanta – where we’ll catch our flight back to London.
What a fantastic week! Amazing food, time on pristine beaches, walks by the sea, runs by the sea. The week flew by and I’m more than a little sad to be heading home.
Our routine, was quite… Well, routine! Breakfast in the hotel, a wander through town and by the sea, some time on the beach, a late lunch and suddenly (really) it was happy hour in the hotel bar. This was our cue for some drinks, followed by another leisurely stroll out for dinner.
I’ll admit we didn’t go to all of the places on our list, as we kept ending up at the fabulous “Palace” bar. Aside from great cocktails and music, they have a superb drag show nightly. It’s quite interactive, so you have to have a thick skin. But it’s always hilarious and so, for this week, we became drag devotees.
South Beach was such a change from Orlando – somewhere I’m not planning on going back to any time soon. We had a fun day out in Universal Studios, but aside from that, it’s just a pile of theme parks and ‘all you can eat’ restaurants.
It wasn’t a disaster, it just wasn’t what we wanted from a holiday. The highlight was a day out to the Kennedy Space Centre, where my space geek roamed free.
It’s strange – we’ve packed in so much and yet it feels like we’ve been here just a weekend. A good sign, I think. I’m already checking dates for a return visit to South Beach later this year.
