Impressions of Cuba

Old cars, cigars, mojitos, and brightly colored colonial buildings. The crumbling streets  full of life, bustling cafeterias that everyone converges on for breakfast and lunch, or the sound of pick up soccer games outside your window. Cuba is utterly indescribable. The country is wholly bewildering, insanely gorgeous, and completely captivating. The Cuban people have taken us into their homes, showed us amazing hospitality, and offered a semi-snippet into Cuban culture. It’s been hard for us to internalize Cuban way of life. On one hand, you have the new influx of tourism and private enterprises that are completely changing people’s lives ...

Guide to Visiting the Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina

Asheville is full of wonderful things to do, but if you’re in the area and miss out on going to the Biltmore Estate... you’re not doing it right. It was my first time visiting the Biltmore Estate and while Cazzie has been before, it was his first time in quite awhile. We planned on spending a couple of hours there during the day and then head camping later at night, but ended up throwing all our other plans away to stay longer. And it was well worth it! If anyone says that the United States doesn’t have royalty, this estate ...

Chicago Walking Tour

Last weekend, we headed back to my old stomping grounds to celebrate our engagement with my family. For those of you who don’t know, I’m originally from outside the magnificent city of Chicago. While I will always treasure my time there, ultimately the winters were too harsh and I was forced to flee to warmer weather. Chicago in the summer is truly magical. After the long, freezing cold winter, the people of Chicago come out of hibernation and celebrate the three good months of the year...and they know how to celebrate. While the actual city of Chicago is huge, their ...

Camping in the Aspen Rockies

Colorado is a true dream. One of those places that outdoor lovers can’t help but fall in love with, and never want to leave. Cazzie used to live in Colorado when we first started dating, which now seems like ages ago! Sometimes I forget we were long distance for the first 8 months of our relationship, but I wouldn't trade it for a thing.  I was slightly enamored with both Cazzie and the Rocky Mountains, so my trips to visit were long and frequent. I don’t think I ever asked him if I could come, I just booked flights there ...

  • Have you ever tried to describe a sunset? It's such a simple thing but near impossible to explain. Every day, the sun falls behind the horizon and paints the sky a million different colors...and really the only thing you can say is "you had to be there." •
We returned to the chaos of Havana after spending a week in lush Vinales, and it was jolting to say the least. The sights, sounds and smells are all so different from country life, but we sought solace in the Malecon. The ocean breeze cooled us a bit as we watched the sunset fall behind the city while sipping cervezas, and reflected on our time in this crazy beauty of a country.

  • After going from large city to large city, when we reached the Valle de Vinales it was much needed green therapy. .

Mogotes are these beautiful but strange remnants of what is left when an underground river collapsed the valley floor. Now it's the cradle of agriculture for Cuba..a rich, fertile land that is full of small farming villages and lots of tobacco smoking campesimos, otherwise known as the Cuban cowboy. .

  • Who else journals while they travel? 🙋🏼
•
Fun fact about me: I have the worst memory. If I don't journal, I'll never be able to remember what the names of the places we went to, or small details that might have happened. So....I write everything down. .

Speaking of writing, my first blog is up now on our impressions on Cuba. It's the first part of a series detailing our time around the country! .
