Journey to Key West – USA Travel Journal 2012

20.7.12

Our journey to Key West.

It took us nearly 2.5 hours to get to there.  The road was one lane most of the way and the speed limit was quite low and it was busy on the road today.

Well we found somewhere to park and fed the meter and walked off to explore Key West.

So while we were walking around Dave spied an electric car/scooter to hire. So this was going to be our mode of transport for the next 4 hours. Therefore it was a great way to see the Key West and we had a lot of fun while checking out the outskirts of town.

We were able to see parts of that we couldn’t with the car and was certainly able to see more this way than we would of walking.

It was so much fun!!

20.7.12 Key West

We hit the road early today for our journey to the Keys. It was another hot day today. Great for the tropics.

It took us nearly 2.5 hours to get there as the road was one lane most of the way and then the limit was quite low, and it was extremely busy too which made for a longer time journey.

Miami Day 2- USA Travel Journal 2012

19.7.12 – Miami

 

 

Another hot day today, I actually pulled out the dress to wear. Got a little sunshine. We had a sleep in and then headed into Miami to find the Hard Rock to collect another glass 🙂 and then checked out the marina. It was beautiful. I found a little stall that makes street signs, so I was able to get the Jovi sign after all…hehehe!!!

Miami – USA Travel Journal 2012

18.7.12

We are in Miami tonight and by gingees its hot.

Its like being in Bali in the blistering heat. I was a big ball of sweat this afternoon.

I had the address for Miami Ink in the GPS as the first stop…lol. It wasn’t hard to find but you would walk right by it in the street if you didn’t have the address. It looks nothing like it does on the show. They need to trim the palm tree out the front so you can see the tattoo sign. Not sure where the Love Hate bar is, as its not next door as I thought it was and there was none of the guys there.  It sure would be nice to walk in to one of these places and see them standing there and get the elusive pic.

Road to Pt Charlotte – Florida – USA Travel Journal 2012

Boring day today. I slept most of the way to our stop for the night. We had no agenda but to get as close to Miami as possible. No back roads or small towns. Just the main international highway. The scenery is much the same too.

The place we have stopped for the night is really nice though. Lovely motel room compared to our last stop. No creepy crawlies here and the water is hot for a shower.

So I am off to watch some telly for a change, while Dave gets some sleep.

Night all
