One reason why we booked the travel was once as a result of Thomas had a flight credit score from a flight he canceled in March of 2020. So our flights to Miami have been coated via that. And our lodge was once just about unfastened because of bank card issues. Shuttle hacking FTW. (The cost of foods and drinks in Miami balanced this out – OUCH!)

We walked about 2 miles to get the day going after which become bathing fits for the afternoon.
