Traveling Through Five Cities in Florida Part I
What’s good guys! Lately, I have gone on a family road trip down south to Florida. We stopped at five cities, from St. Augustine to Fort Lauderdale, from Miami to Key West, and finally at Naples.

The next day, we were visiting Biltmore Hotels to see the luxurious side of Miami. It was a grand hotel with a golf course. I love how they incorporated the Spanish and Southern style colors and tiles.
Another stop in Miami, we were at Wynwood, the ultimate hipster district of Miami. Graffitis were more than graffitis – they were big artworks. Some graffitis were dimensional, some were minimalistic, and some were
This is all the glossy + beautiful photos I took in Miami! Stay tuned for the second blog post and a vlog soon about all the funny things we ran into!
