I've been in New York and Texas, California and Arizona. This time I've decided to have a road trip through Americas southermost state - Florida, check out Miami and rich the popular Key West point - the southermost point in America.

Orlando airport

Actually our journey started in Orlando where we've arrived from London. So first things first. Lets get our cars - American style.

Mustang and Camaro

What kind of a road trip would it be without real American convertible muscle cars? Certainly not the cheapest way to go but it is deamn worth it.

First of all we had to get to Miami where our journey would begin. By the time we got there it was already late night.

The next morning. Hello Miami! What can be better that a beautiful morning in Miami beach right in front of the ocean?

Since we are here it would be a shame not to explore the world famous Miami beach before leaving for the Key West.

So lets take our roof down and head off.

Miami downtown

Let the road trip begin. First of all we had to drive through Miami itself which took us about 2 hours.

Another benefit of convertibles. Easy to admire city and take photos.

Key West roads

Once you get out of the city you end up on a long highway that is made of 42 bridges that go from island to island until you reach the last Key West island. So yo're pretty much driving through the ocean. The view is spectecular.

Just an endless road through the ocean. If we could go about 120 miles to the left we would end up on Bahama islands.

And of course driving down this road is even more fun and enjoyable if you have American convertibles.

Finally we are here. Welcome to the paradise.

I’ve been travelling ever since a was a child but my first large trip was at the age of 13 when I was sent to live for a couple months to London. This trip has changed me and ever since I just want to see more and more of our beautiful world. Every trip gives me new emotions, charge and strength to keep going further.
