Miami was not on the original route plan, but the guarantee of the best weather, beaches and nightlife was too much to pass up for 3 boys with the freedom to roam. We had also been playing Will Smith-Miami (Link below) quite a bit in the car so were intrigued to see what it had to offer.

Not being able to find a couchsurf, we headed to a hostel, which had a cracking atmosphere and was 1 block from SoBe (South Beach). This was the first experience we had of a warm ocean, I thought Tenby in July was normally pretty warm, but it was like a bath and there were as many people in the water as on the beach. Now there was a selection box of people on Miami Beach, some more easy to look a than others, you had the models, fatties, super fatties and those with Borat's mankini inspired swim suits. But this was SoBe, and anything goes.

The evenings all started in the hostel were we made new friends, played flip cup and drank rum before moving on to the strip, which seemed to go on forever. However this did not include Luke, who on the first day found $100 and wondered off for a $50 meal of Veal, Shrimp and Chocolate cake.

On the Saturday however, we decided to treat ourselves to a Lobster at a Michellin star restaurant (without our mothers to cook for us we had to get high quality cuisine from somewhere!). It was glorious. We ended up staying another night, the only way to sum Miami up is with the help of Will Smith's lyrics

"I only come for 2 days of playing, but every time we come

we always wind up staying.

This the type of town I could spend a few days in,

Miami the city that keeps the roof blazing."
