Time goes by too quickly when you are having fun: Anna, Anna and Kim take Miami! The vacation to celebrate our 30th Birthday

20 Nov

Dear readers

The past ten days have been simply amazing, after a few years of living apart in different countries, my best friend and I managed to squeeze in a week long vacation together, like the old good times and trust me we had so much fun!!! I keep on looking back at the pictures to try to live all the moments again, it is true that time goes by too quickly when you are having fun and spending time with the people you love! From Miami to Boca Chita (by boat) and from Brickell to Key West (by car) every moment was a laugh, every song listened remind us a good moment in time…oh God it wish it wasn’t over! Anyway let’s start the countdown to Christmas and to the next two trips planned, Italy and Florida again of course! I am stuck with ideas for Christmas gifts for everybody, any suggestions?? Now you can have a look at the pictures of Anna, Anna & Kim Take Miami!

I left my heart in Miami as usual and jet lag is killing me softly! The joy of being back home with a grown looking Coco Chanel while counting the days for the next adventure!

1 Mar

Hello readers

I apologize for not have posted for nearly two weeks (I have been told off by my mum one hour ago, “You never posted while away I kept on looking on your blog but nothing!”) but as usual we have been busy with so many things going on, boat, house, stuff, poker run, decorating…it’s all over now and we finally will be able to enjoy completely our Miami pad that we made it perfect for us and for our friends for future vacation….I am sorry I am talking American right now…I even drive like a Miami driver with my jet lag/hangover feeling!

The joy of powerboating…we did a poker run from Miami to Islamorada in the Florida Keys and we arrived there later than everyone else…in style…in the pitch dark…very Miami vice!!!

I think for today I should just add some pictures …just to show you what we have been up to! Tomorrow is another day…hopefully I will feel less jetlagged and sad about leaving Miami…I am sure my gorgeous Coco will keep me busy for the next few days!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Coconut Grove, Key Largo, Islamorada, Key west was a bit too far…now I get what they mean with BOATING IN PARADISE! IN LOVE FOR THE FLORIDA KEYS

8 May

We came back last night after two gorgeous days spent in paradise, and I mean paradise! Hot, sunny, gorgeous….good friends, good boat, good food, good drinks, nothing else matters when you combine all these ingredients!

Left on Sunday morning from Coconut Grove, arrived at Gilbert’s in Key Largo to enjoy lunch and some good pinacolada, next stop was the Postcard Inn in Islamorada via the sandbanks close to the Tiki Bar….so beautiful around there!!!

Yesterday morning after a good fat breakfast we left but we didn’t go far, minor problem to the steering wheel that got sorted a few hours later, few more hours in the sunshine….and 8pm back at Coconut Grove…plus when you finish two days in paradise with a slice of KEY LIME PIE…nothing can go wrong!!!!

I knew it was coming…SOS!

20 Nov

I knew it. I was damn sure of this. I’m back and I’m back to be boring and see the sun going down at 4pm makes me feel like I’m going to kill myself.

A weekend in the British countryside, I should say a few hours yesterday and a few more today, between Friday and Saturday I slept 14 hours, how good was that???

Tomorrow is Monday, I cannot get my head around to go back to work tomorrow, to walk around again the same high street in Brighton, get the train, get a sandwich from Tesco…feel cold, OMG I want to move to Florida!!!

To cheer me up, or to get me more depressed…I have some more pictures from the holiday that I couldn’t upload a few days ago because they were on my blackberry….

Cheers everyone…to a Sunday evening…not even Rihanna’s new album helped me this weekend!

the last dinner in key west, massive shrimp cocktail glass for everyone

the sleepy parrots at the restaurant

it was supposed to be a present for my cousin christian!! 😉

Driving through the Keys…

15 Nov

The week in key west is finally over, between lots of dramas with boats, rental cars and caravan, we drove back to Miami through the keys, we stopped to islamorada at the tiki bar for lunch and finally we are in Miami, not back home yet! Still sorting out the boat and looking for a place to store it…we are all so tired that I really don’t want to go back to england tomorrow, please I’d like to stay a few more days! X

 

My blackberry does not want to work at the moment so I cannot post any pictures, sorry about that I will do it tomorrow!

Back to Miami, Swedish House Mafia on in the apartment and now it’s time to hit the city!

 

Saturday on the beach…loving the Keys!

13 Nov

A saturday in Key West again, I eally enjoyed a day on the beach with my husband, still wearing the team tshirts!

Tomorrow it’s race number 3…and the last one, hopefully everything is going to be fine and everyone will be safe.

Like a proper turist, I wanted to see the closest point to cuba!

mu husband relaxing…or sleeping

thanks H&M for my vest…thanks Team 26 for the printing!

Key West Key West…it’s not all about boats!

11 Nov

Race day number 2 and all seem good, haven’t got the official result yet but probably the team arrived third or second…to me a very good result!

I’ll keep all of you posted about….yesterday…it was a nice day, my husband and I went off to the beach, had a lovely lunch in a restaurant just outside the beach and we relaxed for a few hours in the sun, I got so excited looking at the pelicans landing in the water just in front of us, I have never seen real pelicans .. We don’t have them in Italy! Later on we went to the poker run village where lots of boats arrived yesterday for the weekend, what did I see? Boats, boats and boats!!! I’m starting to like key west a bit more… I should only start to find a life outside the pits!!!

shall I sell my smart and I buy this one? 😉

Waking up in Key West!

9 Nov

It hasn’t been a long journey from Miami but I do feel pretty tired, I just woke up in Key West, or I have probably never fallen asleep last night.

I started my journey yesterday morning at Miami airport, where I had to pay extra because my suitcase was too heavy…trouble is I don’t get lbs, miles etc….please everyone speak in kg and km!!!

I had to pay 25 bucks for 1.5 kg overweight; I had to give my heavy bag to a random guy at the airport for SECURITY INSPECTION…what??? I cannot stand the idea of people going through my stuff, well but welcome to USA…take it or leave it

When I arrived to the gate and I saw how small was the plane…right I went straight to the mojito lounge to get a drink to try to cover my fear of flying…I intentionally left the Valium at home, didn’t need for 30 minutes flight…but maybe it could have been good!

After 30 minutes and lots of AVE MARIA…I finally landed into the Keys! By the way the view from the plane was amazing!

I’m here, today is the racing day…and I’m so tired that no one can imagine…maybe after the race I’ll go to discover the town…so pretty, so colourful…so ’50… right I will post some pictures later on!!

Have a good day everyone!
