CUBA | VINALES

Vinales, Cuba’s countryside was a short and packed to the max visit. From the moment we arrived we all wished we’d planned one more day but with our itinerary it just wasn’t possible so we made it our mission to leave no stone unturned during our 24 hour stay.

MUCHACHO

Two things you need to know, coffee and breakfast tacos. Go on? I thought so!

Muchacho is half of two relatively new dining options that opened up in Grant Park in an old train station building. Connected (behind the closed door below) is it’s sister eatery, Golden Eagle which has equally as cool, but very different, vibes.

Stepping into Muchacho feels like walking into a 1973 coffee shop in a surf town in Southern California.  Oozes cool vibes – see more for yourself after the jump!

CUBA | VARADERO

Our Christmas was very low key. We had gotten all of our celebrating out of the way the week before so the day of, we were basically just chilling wanting it to hurry up and be over so we could jet off to Cuba to explore and ring in the New Years with our buddies Blake and Sara– fellow photography lovers and travel enthusiasts.  We’ve known them for a few years now but hadn’t traveled together until connecting on the urge to visit Cuba and booking back in June. Political turmoil and suspected threats on our diplomats had us on the edge of our seats whether we’d be able to go or not, but, we can say we’ve been to Cuba and back and lived to tell about it! Kidding, mostly.  There were a few dodgy moments, but we had a blast and the colorful island is truly one-of-a-kind and luckily it turns out, Blake and Sara are a traveling dream team.

Follow the classic car while I take you through our travels around Varadero, a resort town in the province of Matanzas, Cuba.

FRANCE TRIP | GIVERNY + MONET

Yall! I’m doing it, I’m finally wrapping up our April Europe trip with this post! Without even trying, because it’s been in chronological order, I’ve saved the best for last :)

We really can’t brag enough about Fat Tire tour company! We love them and trusted them with a big percentage of our Spain and France trips.  This tour was also through them and was definitely a highlight for me.  It was a full day trip, 8.5 hours to be exact. We started with meeting at the storefront and packing up in a bus heading to Normandy, specifically a village called Vernon. When we arrived we walked to a mini storage that was so old and rustic it made America’s public storage facilities look like something out of 2089.  From there we saddled up our bikes and hit up the Market of Vernon.

Not only were these strawberries seriously the best I’ve ever had, literally melting in your mouth, they smelled so fragrant too!
