Bohemian Trails Takes Miami

Without a doubt, my favorite thing about having a bohemian lifestyle is deciding to book a flight to Miami at the drop of a hat.

A Room with a View

Technically I was there for business and while most of my two-day trip was spent hard at work, I still took some time to explore the much warmer alternative city to New York. Last time I was in Miami, I stayed closer to the South Beach side of town but this time I went a bit more local. My apartment was on bay side and had a stunning view of downtown Miami. The view waking up was definitely nicer than my the green fire escape I’m used to seeing in New York.

My Neighborhood

The area was very quiet and slightly residential and yet it was easily accessible to the popular Lincoln Avenue shops, restaurants and fountains. I remember Lincoln Avenue being the once area I really wanted to see but missed out on the last time I visited Miami but this trip I got more than my fare share. As if the warm weather wasn’t enough to put me in an elated mood, these glittery palm trees certainly did the trick.

My Favorite Street

Espanola Way may be way more touristy than it is bohemian but I’m willing to make an exception because I cannot get enough of this street. The only thing I can compare it to is Mulberry Street in Little Italy minus the over-crowdedness and annoying vendors. My first trip down Espanola Way resulted in multiple free rounds of Mojitos plus a few local friends. I didn’t stop by for a drink this time but enjoyed the memories flooding back into my mind.

Morning Sunrise

Miami would not be complete without a sunrise and here you have it – the view from South Beach. Waking up early in the morning and walking to the beach was definitely worth it. It was so early that hardly anyone was up yet and I practically had the place to myself, giving me a more personal experience. The trip was shot and sweet but the brief break from a cold winter back home both revitalized and inspired me to keep trudging along.

Learning Something New

I had written this article right before heading downstairs to catch my cab so this was a last minute addition that I feel is worth sharing. I think that in all my travels I have never actually had a female taxi driver. I can’t believe it took me about fifteen minutes of chatting with this friendly woman to realize this fairly obvious observation. I’ve been in New York for nearly three years now and of course have taken a few cabs in other countries and this was a first for me.
