Miami Travels, Tacos and Tattoos

Next week, my friend is traveling to Miami. He is flying in and out of the Miami International airport on a Wednesday. The layover is for about 12 hours. He asked for some tips and tricks for what he should do. Naturally, I searched my favorite resources: Airbnb, Yelp, and Tripadvisor. We found some great excursions for the tour.

Miami is a metropolitan with too much to do in 12 hours. However, even one hour in the city will give you a good taste if planned ahead. One of the best parts about Miami is the year-long agreeable weather. Summertime demands lots, lots, lots of water. Breaking into the fall for the later months of the year is a leisurely time to travel. From up north? Use the winter to take advantage of sand over snow. “Snowbirds” is a term for those who retreat to the tropics per season.

Food, fun, flight: these are a few of the activities which make up a thrilling layover. Food was brought to you by Yelp! Rated in the Top 10 of Miami restaurants, Tacos and Tattoos seems like the kind of of place that every traveler dreams about. It is ranked high and reviewed with nearly 5-stars online. High, non-paid reviews practically guarantees quality. Yelp is the PR for foodies–unpaid, word-of-mouth…by-tech.

What is Suitaru? Suitaru is a creative interpretation of the Japanese word for style: sutairu. I first heard this word in a Latin class at Florida State University. Some words stand out while others disappear. "Sutairu" has stayed with me. My name is Natalie and I was born on a military base in Okinawa, Japan to parents who were very in love. My mother, father, and I lived there until I was two years old. Although we moved back to America, the desire to travel is in my heart. Since, I have been to surprising parts of the world. I have spent time exploring many different places that I never dreamed I would go. Emerald waters of Italy, the best pizza in my life in Croatia, and a yoga retreat in Iceland. For me, travel inspires creation. Whether that comes out as art, music, or fashion--a certain style is experienced with every passport stamp. This site is a documentary, of sorts. It is a place to post otherwise unseen photographs. Comment along--feedback is fun. Thanks for accompanying my journey! Suitaru embodies a philosophy of innovative, impactful, timeless style. Style is individual expression. Style is art. "Style is eternal." YSL
