After crossing four states in 14 hours driving, I couldn’t sit and write about the final destination… So I apologize for being late on this post.
This also happened because we couldn’t leave New Orleans without visiting Villalobos rescue, from the show Pitbulls & Parolees. Unfortunately, Animal Planet didn’t allow us to film, but after a little chat with Mikey D, the producer of the show, we’ve had some hours inside the car discussing ideas to help dogs. The huge structure and organization they have in there, motivated me even more to start a movement for the dogs in Miami…
Interested? Contact me ;)
We left in the morning after a nice breakfast at New Orleans Guest House, stopped for a little while at the rescue, and by 12:30pm we were at the road. Snacks, water, a nice playlist and the headset to call family and friends were the tools that kept us in the road without getting bored.
Since we were tired from a bustling night in NOLA and focused on arriving in Miami, we couldn’t make any stops besides gas, pipi and a quick late lunch at Ruby Tuesday. Also, the way wasn’t that welcoming to explore. When doing the research in other traveler’s blogs, I haven’t found any tips with cultural approach or special sightseeing’s.
Banana, baby carrots, chocolate, cheese sticks, trail mix, water and an iced coffee were the snacks we’ve had this last day… Yes, I missed my kombucha, my Ezequiel sandwich with Laughing Cow cheese and the delicious pastries from Deli News in Dallas...
We arrived in Miami at 4am and slept just until 10am because I was EXCITED about meeting my baby. From California, I adopted a girl from MDAS that my friend Nathalia fostered for me.. Her new name will be Calee. She's an American Bulldog that was surrended by her owners at the shelter and would probably be euthanized... But now will be happy and healthy with me ;)
Tati had to fly back to NY in one day and wanted to see old friends here, so we HAD to do a last meal in a Miamian style. The destination was a typical Cuban bakery, and we found a Latin American on Calle Ocho.
When I have friends visiting Miami, my tip for a good breakfast are the very casual Moises Bakery in Miami Beach (73rd St & Collins) or the touristic News Café at Ocean Dr, but I am addicted to eggs benedict, and always exploring brunches… A good one I remember was at Olivers on West Ave ;)
Ah! The biggest tip I'd give to anybody when visiting Miami, specially Miami Beach, is: BE AWARE of where you park, because I've lost the count on how many times me and friends had our cars towed.
I hope you enjoyed our tips and posts…
I will develop some articles based on the trip and post here at the website until March 31st. Keep visiting!
Please, feel free to share and help us reach the goal for the dogs… The campaing goes until March 31st.
