A quick overnighter to South Beach, Miami, which reminded me of my time living in Mexico. I was speaking Spanish on Ocean Drive and loving the “see and be seen” mentality, which of course makes for great people watching!
The Dali Museum is a museum dedicated to the works of famous Surrealist artist Salvador Dali. I had visited this museum once before as a teenager, and still nothing compares to seeing them in person…the scale of some of the paintings is lost when viewing online or in books.
There are other Mexican beachside cities that I prefer over Puerto Vallarta, but there are a few food and shopping gems to be found here. Also, I have a soft spot for hilly towns by the water for some reason…maybe they remind me of Hong Kong, one of my favorite cities.
Giardino di Boboli, part of Palazzo Pitti, is a gorgeous and very expansive complex of manicured gardens. It is a great way to spend a couple of hours, and can be paired with Giardino Bardini to have a great day outside…bring a picnic!
