Last Wednesday I arrived here in Sunny Isles, Florida, where I would spend a week in a hotel to meet with my brother who had been gone for fourteen days to a camp in UCLA. I got here with the expectations of being surrounded mainly by an environment of shopaholics trapped inside the walls of a mall, which come to think of it, isn't something that bad... However I was quickly proven wrong. I did in fact spend my days shopping, however it was the perfect time to bond with my mother, and in the afternoons, while my parents went downstairs to the beach, I had time alone to lay back, relax and reflect on my day overlooking the marvellous view of an amazing sunset. After my brother arrived, when my parents went to sleep, we had time to chat together, something we hadn't done since he left for Los Angeles two weeks ago. This trip, I also had the chance to open my mind to things I would never have done before, I watched three soccer matches, and realised I actually liked it, I advanced my reading on mindset and learned reading is not so bad after all. Even though this wasn't your 'typical' family vacation, I found this trip to be one of the most enriching. This will be our last journey together as a family until my brother leaves for university, and even though I had my doubts, I actually came to enjoy it a lot, and will cherish this memory forever.
