So, one thing is certain about the reputation of Miami – everyone is sexy! And I don’t mean sexy in appearance (though there were plenty of beautiful people around), they are sexy in attitude and the way they carry themselves. It gave me some inspiration, and a boost of confidence, which I really needed to prepare myself to meet Chris Van Vliet -3-time Emmy Award winning entertainment reporter for Deco Drive on WSVN FOX in Miami (and Cosmo’s Bachelor of the year)!
I was beyond excited that he was going to drive me around town, and that I’d be featured on the news! Be sure to check out the video footage from this amazing experience. Miami will always be remembered as the time I became famous.
Perhaps it was my new glowing radiance post-interview with Chris, but after a quick photo-shoot with an amazing backdrop, GoPro happened to think I was looking fab enough to give us some love on Instagram! Mark and I love documenting our experiences and adventures with the GoPro HERO4, and we were psyched to be getting attention from them! The excitement and buzz carried me through the weekend as Mark and I hit up the boardwalk on South Beach and handed out chai to beach goers, and also zenned out with the yogis at Green Monkey Yoga. We were so caught up in the moment that we forgot to take pictures, but let me tell you, Green Monkey Yoga is amazing!
I also was equally inspired at our stop at Girl Power Miami, where we hung out with some amazing and sassy young women, and I was decorated with so much love and literal girl power on my devotion board! It’s amazing what programs like Girl Power can do and the impact they have in local communities. I was so thrilled to be part of that experience and to be able to give a donation to help Girl Power continue making a difference in the lives of these amazing young ladies.
Our Miami trip topped off with a sampling bonanza at Whole Foods South Beach where we met some amazing fans. It really couldn’t have been a better weekend, and as bittersweet as it was to hit the road again, I am really looking forward to spending some time in our Nation’s capital this week!
Be sure to check in with our social channels to track my next adventures in D.C. You can get live updates on the tour by using #MeetGinger and #TukTukTour on Instagram and Twitter. So, in the spirit of Jack Kerouac, “Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.”
Until next time!
