During a sunny winter vacation in Miami, we started to see environmental cracks in the surface of this urban paradise . Between rising seas, plastic pollution and diminishing drinking water, Miami faces some hard choices ahead if it is to maintain its draw as a vacation hotspot.
I have been to Las Vegas more than any other city, strangely enough. This is due to it being the centre for tech conferences and also a jump off point for desert road trips - a personal favourite. So when the chance came up for another trip, I couldn't say no to the possibility of bright, warm sunshine and some people watching.
