Spring Trip Memories: 2019

Since we’ve been enduring day after day of rain, drizzle and fog here in Newfoundland—along with a touch of the white stuff yesterday—I thought it was high time to drag out photos from our last vacation off the island. Hard to believe it’s been almost two years since we flew to sunny Cuba for a week. 

The weather was particularly hot and humid this time, but we found ways to keep cool with the help of pools, shady spots, a la carte dining, and lots of cold drinks.

This cloud looked like a curtain being drawn over the resort. The inevitable shower was short, sweet, and refreshing.

The bus arrives for an afternoon excursion to the town of Varadero.

And no trip to Varadero would be complete without an al fresco meal at our favourite “restaurante.”

Who knows if we will ever see the Caribbean again?
At least we have the Memories!

  1. Jennifer, I’m still walking along that beautiful beach and will join you at Don Alex for a bite!😀 Thank you for sharing your special trip here and Cuba is not a usual holiday destination. I love the pink Cadillac – I love those and my husband had organised one as a suprise for our wedding!😀

      1. I’m glad! I actually think it’s better, but the changes are so big and they are not always intuitive. It took me forever to find certain features, but now that I have, I think they are easier to use. Looking forward to your next trip!

  2. We were suppose to go to Cuba last March 21st, for the first time. Maybe one day. Hope your weather improves soon. We’ve been having some beautiful weather lately, today is the first rain day in a couple of weeks. Stay safe my friend and hopefully we’ll all be able to travel again soon. CHEERS!!!

      1. We´ve been to Puerto Rico, Aruba, Curacao, Barbados, Granada, St Lucia, St, Roche, St. Martin, Grand Cayman and The British Virgin Islands (our favourite and we´ve visited twice). Each island has its own distinctive personality.

        1. Wonderful! That’s quite the list! Yes, I’m sure they are each distinct in their own way. Whenever travel opens up again, we’re going to skip the south as we’re hoping to go to the UK for an extended holiday. Fingers crossed.
