After crossing the Atlantic, our plane flies along the east coast of America. The further south we go, the more the thick clouds below us will tear open. Between the wispy clouds we can see the sea more and more often. Deep blue it extends into the distance. Small white foam crowns on the waves indicate that we are still away from the coast. Miami in December - we look forward to it. We track our trajectory via the on-board camera, which is probably attached to the upper end of the aircraft tail. Because we watch the plane follow its invisible paths above the clouds. Shortly before landing, our pilot turns another corner over the Atlantic. Then he flies over the elongated peninsula of Miami Beach with its high-rise buildings and sandy beaches, the port of Miami and its city center. It sinks ever lower.

    In December, I always envy those who live in Florida and do not have to shovel snow. Maybe I should plan my vacation like that, 26 grade + sounds very good.

      Hello Stefanie,

      If you drive to Florida in December or January, you shorten the winter at home. On the other hand, this is a season, especially in the south of Florida very pleasant temperatures prevail. The further north you get, the cooler it gets.

      Best regards,

    Hello you two,
    yes in January, February it is always very bad. It will take a while until spring. It is quiet to nothing in my home town and light and sun are missing. We lived in different hotels in South Beach. Time on Ocean Drive, then in the streets behind. The beach is beautiful and the weather is mostly around the 26 grade.
    Best regards
