Onward To Miami
In 2009, Miami Airport was ranked first in the United States by percentage of international flights and second by volume of international passengers, behind only JFK in New York. In 2009, 33,886,025 passengers traveled through the airport, making the airport the 25th busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic. The Airport also ranks as the 12th busiest in the US by annual passenger throughput and is the largest airport in the state of Florida, surpassing Orlando by a small margin. The airport also handled more international cargo than any other airport in the United States.
Trinidad to Miami was a 1628 mile journey. Bogota to Miami was a 1509 journey into this incredibly flat but watery city
We stayed at La Quinta East on the 3rd of September and the 6th of October, the hotel provided transport with good music aboard
Both visits to Miami we ate in Bennigan's an authentic Irish Bar and Eaterie, just next door to the hotel - great food, real beer
ALL IN ALL WE LOOK FORWARD TO SAILING HERE ON BEEZ NEEZ TO EXPLORE THE SUNSHINE STATE
