We got up at 08:30, packed the remaining items, showered, had breakfast and left the house around 11:00, after a game of Monopoly Deal.
We had some time to kill, so we drove down through the really nice, huge, houses.
After we looked at all the houses, we drove to an ice cream place, got ice cream and then went to Starbucks for a coffee.
We had to leave shortly after, though, as our bus was due at the bus stop (which was a gas station).
We got to the bus stop and then checked on the bus which said it was delayed by an hour, but the image on the app said it hadn’t left the first stop yet.
We called to ask, whilst we sat and had a doughnut in Dunkin’ and they weren’t much help.
We went back to the gas station and there was an attendant inside and she said she thinks it is cancelled but will check.
Eventually, she confirmed this and said we can board the 15:50 bus instead, for free. We looked into car rental but it was far too expensive so we booked onto that bus instead.
We said goodbye to Kim’s family as they had to catch a flight back to England. It was an emotional time for Kim, too.
We waited for an hour or so until the bus arrived and were happy to get on it.
Bus Ride To Miami
We had a 5 hour ride, which was less than our previous bus was going to be anyway, so that’s good.
We had an uneventful journey with only a few scheduled stops. We even skipped a few at the end so we got in a little early.
We got an Uber to downtown Miami, where our apartment is.
We are on the 42nd floor, with amazing views of Miami and the water!
We wanted some food and were recommended to go to the bayside marketplace which has a few well priced chains in there.
We decided on Five Guys as it was easy and we fancied a burger.
Curtis chose to have a cheeseburger with lettuce, mayo, steak sauce, grilled onions & pickles, but he got mushrooms instead of onions, for some reason.
Kim got a small cheeseburger with lettuce, steak sauce, grilled onions and mushrooms.
We got a side of small fries and shared a chocolate milkshake.
The food was pretty nice, though as said before they did get the order wrong. The milkshake was incredible though!
We got back, ate our food and went to sleep…we were very tired after a long stressful day, so were looking forward to getting some sleep.
