Key west (II)

Even though it’s was a short trip/ vacation in Key West, and mostly doing wedding stuff, there is not enough space here to describe it. I mentioned the first things that got me all excited about the place, but that is far from the only ones, or the best ones!
IMG_0468-1.JPGThe schedule was pretty tight, at least enough for me- the girl that never been to an American-on-the-beach wedding. From where I come from, the guests at the wedding show up at the big wedding party, drink, eat and go home. This one was different. We met with the rest of the guest and family a couple days before the big day on the roof top of the hotel to see the famous sunset. Then the next day we had the rehearsal dinner, where we were announced about a city quest contest. The very next day we started already to complete the commands on the quest sheet. This is the part that I liked the most! Before coming here all I knew was that Key West it’s a very hot touristic point at the moment ( this time of the year), now after that quest, I found out more than I know about my home town :)))
We visited the house of Ernest Hemingway, saw the six towed cat, saw the little White House, the mile zero, the most southern point of US, the headquarters of PanAm airways, Z. Taylor port, the closest Cuban bar to Cuba (90miles)…. And much more fun stuff. Basically, in one day, we discovered the city, that normal people do it in one week :).
I liked also the specific local bars and gift shops. We’ll, of course, in a hot travel destination, what else can they have 🙂 .

Oh, must not forget!!! I was DUI !!! I was driving my bicycle after all these cocktails :)) was pretty amazing ! Not the DUI part, God forbid! The amazing part was the fun, the laughter, the ability of 4 buzzed(cause it’s too harsh to say -drunk) adults, on bicycles with a puppy in the front basket at 1 AM.

Then it came the wedding day. Of course it was perfect! The nice weather, the beach, the cool breeze… the white dress……the white dress… No other words can descrise it better!
