Florida dreaming again???!

So last blog was about trip in Adelaide and how we travelled home. How many days at home? 6!!! Next trip – Florida for 2 weeks with mum and Jozef. Main purpose of this trip was my WTA Pro Coaching Course held in Miami at the end of our stay. So I will start how we travelled. I found amazing deal – flight tickets with Eurowings…300€ roundtrip to Miami (without luggage) – of course we got some luggage but mostly on our trip back home πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ We did some shopping πŸ™ˆπŸ˜œ so this photo was taken in the airplane of Eurowings on our way from Koeln to Miami. Have you ever travelled with them? Its a low cost company so you have to pay for luggage and food


Flight time was about 8-9 hours…It was not the worst. BUT – somewhere near the Greenland we got very strong turbulence!!! 😧😧😧😫 It was so strong… the whole aircraft was shaking like earthquake πŸ˜°πŸ™ I checked the screen in front of me and I had to take a pic to show you the proof. Head wind was 231 km/h βœˆοΈπŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨

After this terrible experience I was happy to be on the ground. I think everyone was. No doubt. 

So in next days we enjoyed Florida weather , sunsets,travels,shopping….

The most favourite place to shop for me is a store called Ross. You all know I love bargain and good price. If you didnt know – now you know new thing about me πŸ€— (10$ and up is too expensive for me)πŸ˜‚

So Ross shopping was our relaxation. Great time with my mum after such a long time in Aus – it was all I (we) needed ❀️❀️❀️ I got some nice pieces there for cheap $$$



Im not modelling type and posing is not my strenght but mum did a great job ☺️☺️☺️ finally  I got personal photographer πŸ˜‹

Oh…. how I missed those Florida sunsets

Never enough of these πŸ™‚

Good balance skills mum πŸ‘Œ high five βœ‹οΈ


Nature around Boca Raton and especially Florida University is on point πŸ‘Œ


Met a longtime friend Steve the squirrel 🐿🐿🐿


I could walk here everyday and never get bored… Its picture perfect πŸ˜‹ plus no one walking – just us πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


Found some interesting things as well… I had to capture it for you !!!

I dont think I would want to fall into this cactus πŸ˜‚πŸ˜°

Or this tree??? All so dangerous 😈😈😈 what is it? Looks like seashells on the tree😧😧😧


Okay I found some nice flowers too… it even has a emoji! 🌼🌼🌼 


This beautiful storm was coming while we had lunch in oceanside restaurant 😱😨☺️ that color of the sea… so nice


I’m Instagram person. I follow many accounts and get inspiration. Apura Juicery is one of them… first time there and loved it ❀️


While in Florida you should all try to go to casino. Its very interesting experience. To see these rich people putting their credit cards into machines 😫 I would definitely use $$$ in a better way … for example in Ross 😜😜😜

Thank you Zdenka and Janko for showing us how other people use their money ☺️ and great dinner  ( and laughs ) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Janko is a legend

My coaching course was coming… I was so excited to join this thing. I arrived as a first person to the class in the morning ( like 7 am😱)and got this bag full of surprises πŸ™‚ it was 4 day course where we spent 2 days in a class (8hours) and then 2 days on the court (8hours again). I must admit it was a biiiiig change!!!! Sitting in a classroom for 8 hours trying to listen and focus was very difficult. Not only for me. We were great bunch of tennis players (and coaches) there and Im glad I got to meet them. Felt like at school again… having classmates ☺️


Two of them were Ivana and Izo! I knew both of them before so it was nice surprise to meet them again πŸ‘Œ height difference on point too 😨 what a energy from these two πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


2 days on the court were a bit better but still standing for 8 hours on the hot Florida sun is not fun 😰😧🌞🌞🌞 Course was held same time as Miami International so it was awesome! Mum and Jozef watched the best players in the world and I was sweating on the court trying to practice my coaching skills as much as I could πŸ™‚ It was all worthwhile

Morning coffee/tea time was my favourite. Everyone was so sleepy but excited for next day 


One evening we had party and Mike ( one of my favourite ‘teachers’ was celebrating birthday). So smart man who can work magic with kids 


There was a competition in a restaurant where you draw a picture… Well, Im not an artist thats for sure πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ


We got the chance to see broadcasting as well… very very very interesting work …. so many buttons everywhere and TV’s !!!πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“


Last day we had exams! 

So the thing was to have 4 beginners (it was just us players playing with left handπŸ˜±πŸ˜‚) and give them tennis lesson. I didnt know the topic before but I was 90 percent sure it would be forehand or backhand so I prepared some drills night before so I would not end up in stressfull situation. Of course I DID!!! I got volleys! 3 drills with volleys… My head was in a big trouble πŸ™‚ I made up some drills quickly while having a warmup but it was not a pleasant ‘ride’ πŸ™‚ Pablo in my group helped me a lot because he was asking me questions so I could lead the lesson easier! Anyway, I made it in the end. We all did ❀️❀️❀️ So Im officially PTR and USPTA certified coach from now on πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ and I can give you good volley lesson as well πŸ˜‰ well prepared



Road to Key Biscayne where Miami International is held is my favourite drive. (After drive to Key West)…. picturesque palms 😍


Bridge over the ocean πŸ™‚


Miami Skyscrappers


Miami Open Entrance … 


And me – trying to get my sunglasses where they should be 😎😎😎😝


My best friend from my hometown lives near Miami Beach so we visited her and her cute son 😍😍😍 He is growing up way too fast πŸ™‚ 


Way to South  Beach… latino vibe is everywhere πŸ˜‹


A bit of a show on the street πŸ˜±πŸ™ˆ

​​
And actual beach :-)🐳🐠🐟🐑🐬🦐


On our way back to Boca after long day 


Jozef made a new friend as always πŸ™ˆβ˜ΊοΈ


Our amazing friend Margaret makes the best jewelry pieces in the world and also these plates πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡


Our time in Florida flew too quickly 😿 We wanted to stay longer!!! But one photo with our rented car for memory….


I hate red eye flights!!!!! HATE HATE HATE… Im type of person I need a good sleep to feel great. So after all night flying I was not the best… the worst thing tho was that Jozef’s bag didnt arrive with us!!! Agghhh… such a frustrating thing…

Maybe these guys had something to do with it????!!!!!!!πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


Anyway … sky is blue up there 24/7 and thats why I love our planet so much ❀️❀️❀️

Your ZZZ 😘😘😘
