Tanya's Daily Scoop
CURRENTLY TRAVELING IN: MIAMI, FLORIDA
Back on US soil
I feel like it's been so long. I've never gone without posting for such a length of time! I feel like such a flake - even though I am the farthest thing from a flake that you will probably ever come by.
As you know I was out of the country and without and wifi of cell service. And since Elisa is on a hiatus (I do not know until when) there was no one to post and publish everything that I've been writing to you guys...
Yes I have indeed been writing to you guys. I would sit out on the balcony and type away - knowing that it may not get posted until a later date (once I get back home) but you will indeed be able to follow along on the entire journey - which was WONDERFUL!
And now (actually as of July 8th) we are back on US soil and in Miami for the MLB All Star Game and Festivities. WooHoo! We are not in the original hotel that I had booked way back in September of 2016 - that was a whole to do - which I will share and explain to you once back in SoCal.
Tons going on and having a ton of fun. But I must say that although the city of Miami has know about this major event taking place within their city for quite some time, sadly they are so very unprepared!
The traffic is a huge mess, and the parking is out of control. There is construction everywhere and like a local said to us yesterday Miami is a great city but it is one of the worst when it comes to planning ahead.
Thus leaving us and thousands upon thousands of other fans with our hands up in the air as what to do and how to do it when it comes to getting to any of the events.
Let get on with some Daily Scoop...
Yesterday after being woken up from our slumber in the middle of the night due to a fire alarm that evacuated the building (oh that is always fun - not). This type of thing has happened to me one too many times and that is waaaaay too many for my liking.
Me - looking forward to laying out on the beach??? I must be an imposter!
As you know I am far from what anyone would consider a fan of laying on the beach - but there are a few (and only a few) beaches that I have made the exception for and Miami Beach is one of them!!
I was on the phone with the airline when we parked and exited the car and had asked my gang if they knew where we were - they claimed they did. Well after checking a few lots we finally found the car and were now running late for our late lunch!
So needless to say that I was a bit frazzled once we were finally in the stadium. But we still managed to walk around and check things out - this was my first visit to this Marlins ballpark.
I was hoping to head back out onto the beach (only steps away) this morning - but it was raining, so I will try for it again tomorrow.
Time to go wake the kids up and for us to head back out to the Fan Fest and then the Home Run Derby later tonight!!
It sure feels good to be back. See ya'll tomorrow,
