I was flipping through YouTube and noticed that The Swedish House Mafia has a music video called Miami to Ibiza. It idolizes the lifestyle of those locales.
I had the fortune of actually going to Miami and Ibiza this past year. And yes, Miami (some of it) is definitely a star studded, glamorous strip with great restaurants and beautiful beaches...
But, what's the deal with Ibiza
? I mean from the postcards and Venga Boy
propaganda it seems like a Mediterranean paradise...
... up close, it's nothing like the above picture. The beaches aren't pretty; they're course, filthy and littered with sea plants & cigarette butts!
The hotels are archaic, the streets smell like vomit & urine, and it felt like I went back in time by 30 years. The clubs are weak and the island is pretty much poverty stricken.
I should've known the island sucked when our airpor cab was doing her nails while driving. Fock!
If you're from a small Bratislavan town, maybe the trashy disco-tech appeal is the greatest thing since voting, but for me, you'll NEVER catch me there again.
Do Vegas. Do Miami. Do a winery tour in Kazakhstan!
Just don't go to Ibiza,
