Travel Photo Diaries | Photos from Cuba II

varadero cuba

Last New Years my family went to Cuba.  You can see photos from my trip here. Well, we had such a great time that we came back, and that we decided to go again next year!  My parents were kind enough to let me bring my boyfriend, and we have all decided that next year his family will come too, making it one massive double family vacation!  You know your relationship is getting serious when...but really I think this will be wonderful.  Our families get along well, and have lots in common.  April will be our 3rd anniversary, and It think it is good for our families to get better acquainted.
We shared a room with my 17 year old brother who likes to sleep, play video games, and generally be left alone.  Thankfully my boyfriend and brother get along well, and the whole trip was quite nice. Here are a bunch of photos, in no real order, sharing about my trip.  As usual: no photos of my boyfriend or family because they weren't the one who decided to write a beauty blog and I respect their privacy.

We took a day trip that included a stop at a ranch.

I got so many freckles!

My only regret is that we did not get a chance to go back to my favourite Pina Colada place!  It was about 40 minutes away from our hotel on the way to Havana.  We didn't go to Havana this year-- so no Pina Coladas in pineapples for me!  Next year we may go to Havana again, so I will be looking forward to my Pina Colada!  This year was much more restful, and much more relaxing.  I was so lucky to have my boyfriend at my side, as we were reading, enjoying the food, and enjoying the sun. I can't wait for next year!

Did you do anything exciting over the break?
