At the end of December, we decided to get on the plane to Miami and go on a two-week Florida road trip Sunshine State on. Let's test if it's true that the winters are so enjoyable there.
While we're in Frankfurt together with hundreds of other sun-hungry passengers waiting to board our giant plane, it storms and snows on the flight paths in front of the large windows of the hangar. We are flying for the first time with a Lufthansa A380. “Miami cannot be worse than here”, I think to myself while looking at the capricious weather in front of the airport windows. We board the plane surprisingly quickly, despite the crowds who are escaping the winter with us. Miami in December is sure to be a good idea.
You shouldn't forget that
Miami in December
After crossing the Atlantic, our plane flies along the east coast of America. The further south we go, the more the thick clouds break up below us. Between the clouds we can see the sea more and more often. Deep blue, it extends into the distance. Small white crests on the waves indicate that we are still away from the coast. Miami in December - we look forward to it. We follow our trajectory via the on-board camera, which is probably attached to the upper end of the rear of the aircraft. Thus we watch the plane follow its invisible paths above the clouds. Shortly before landing, our pilot flies a curve over the Atlantic. Then he heads inland over the elongated peninsula of Miami Beach with its skyscrapers and sandy beaches, the Port of Miami and its downtown. Our plane descends deeper and deeper.
