I recently took a trip to Miami and from there went to Orlando. It all began taking a bus to Orlando and then made my way to the Miami International airport, my destination where my wife would meet me. I was coming from the Tallahassee area and it takes about 10 or 11 hours to get there. I have not taken a bus in a while and today there are many cheap fares, my total cost was less than $40. The bus ride was nice, sit back and enjoy the view, take a siesta and boom your there.
It was getting late and we pulled into Miami International airport, thinking I would be doing some walking to meet her but no, she met me as soon as I got off the bus. The adventure starts to really begin here. Now Miami has a decent mass transit system; Metro rail, buses that run pretty regularly, at least till 12pm. BB and me waited for the bus and the right one never showed, getting later and later. My wife or BB as she is known checked on the route and due to construction was all messed up. Now getting even later we were informed that we could catch the metro but it doesn't quite get to our destination, a hotel. So now it is after 12pm and no buses are running and we are stuck at the metro station. It is Miami and there was a front moving through bringing heavy rain. We are actually trying to get to our hotel which we would be staying and then going from there to attend my wife's big PR party at the beautiful and historical Hialeah park, the following day.
Well, BB is always prepared. and she tells me we can use "Lift" to get to the hotel. It is an app on your phone where someone who uses their own car comes and picks you up. Not so fast, the driver was foreign and BB kept trying to direct him in the pouring rain where exactly to meet us, BB kept calling him back saying "where are you", while both of us made dashes to different areas around the metro station to meet him in the pouring rain. By some miracle he finally shows up! Well we made it to the hotel late, slept over well and the unlimited breakfast bar at the hotel made us both forget about the previous night.
