Welcome to Miami (Buenvenidos a Miami)!

Hello guys!! I recently celebrated my 25th Birthday! This one was big, really big. Possibly the biggest mental challenge a birthday has been thus far. I've lived a 'I'm going to be 19 forever' attitude since the day I turned 20 (19 will always be my favourite age, I'm certain) - never getting older really. But this time I've accepted it.

25 feels pretty good. There were all kind of assumptions in my mind about being 25. 25 was always the age I'd be married, the age I might have managed to scrape together for a home; but really I'm no further developed in term of my life than I was at 21 - single, renting, normal job, but I'm pretty happy.

I still hope that one day I can change the world, even just for a handful of people. I'm still hopeful that I shan't grow into an old spinster, and I'm certain that having savings and a home isn't worth half the same amount as the freedom I have to go anywhere and do anything. Facebook babies pop up every day, but I can go to a pop-up every day should I wish!

For my birthday I ticked something off my bucket list, a big one - go to Miami.

I've wanted to celebrate my 25th birthday in Miami for as long as I can remember. If I'm honest I have no idea why but I said it at 18 and we stuck to it!! Me and nine of the very best people in my life caught a plane from Heathrow to Miami International and had the week of our lives. We salsa danced in Little Havana, went and searched for alligators in the Everglades, ate the best tacos I think I'll ever eat at Coyo Taco in Wynwood (more on that in a later post), and laughed until our sides split. Miami was an incredible place and the holiday was actually even better than I could have ever imagined. The withdrawals from not being in a flat with my best mates has been real though - we're all just looking forward to our next adventure!

I couldn't have asked for a better start to 25 and I hope the rest of this year serves me well.
