Rumored to be one of the most liberal cities in the U.S., this particular city has always been on my bucket list. So when I found out the weekend I was headed there also happened to be pride weekend, I immediately text my good friend Diana to see if she would join. Thirty minutes later, … Continue reading Super Sleepless in Seattle
Taking a quick break from our Cuba trip to ramble on about my most recent escapade: Boston. It was a two day thing, and before you ask what I already know you're going to ask, (How can you afford it?), the flight was $138 round trip with Jetblue Airlines. The Airbnb was $229 and I split … Continue reading Boston: Cinco de Drinko
Our horseback tour is at 9 am and since I need to shower, my alarm goes off first at 7:15am. We want the 5 CUC breakfast the host has to offer, but we got in too late to give her a heads up the night before. I quietly walk into the house and she's in … Continue reading Vinales Day 3: The Cuban “OG”

Before I start with my full day one in Cuba, let me cover the arrival day. As stated before, I scheduled my Uber ride in the wee hours … Continue reading Cuba Arrival Day: One drink, two drinks, three drinks, more?
I'm currently sitting at an airport now, awaiting my flight to Ft. Lauderdale. I had full intentions of writing this blog last night, but the day got away from me. Back to Cuba bidness. I initially wanted to go into extreme detail, but I'm going to have to sum up this stuff since there was … Continue reading Cuba…Where/ what we booked
