I recently made my first mini vacation trip out of the country to a place called Puerto Escondido, which means "hidden port" in Spanish. This name could not have been any more true, this place is very much a hidden gem. Since It was my first time traveling solo, my expectation for this trip was that I'll do a lot of sightseeing and have a lot of alone time. To my surprise and delight, none of these were achieved, which was exactly what made the trip more memorable.
"If we were meant to stay in one place, we'd have roots instead of feet" The highlight of my summer was travelling/going on this cruise and it's only right I share this awesome experience for anyone. See, this was particularly important because my goals for Summer’16 was to travel as much as I can, go on crazy adventures, read new books and try out new recipes. My budget didn't permit the last goal, but that's okay I decided to go on a cruise to the Bahamas & as the diva that I am, I forced my fam to go with me. I'm gonna give some tips on how to make your trip an awesome oneeeee Okay here it goes:
I went on my most memorable vacation, so far, with my family over Easter 2015. It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year and best believe we are already making plans to return. This was each of us’ first experience on a cruise ship and if I’m being honest, I didn’t imagine that it’d be quarter as exciting as the experience I had. The cruise lasted 7 nights and we departed from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Checking into the ship, felt like getting on a plane. The full security and immigration shebang! You checked in your luggage etc. and they brought that up to your cabins after check in. Getting on the ship, I was astonished (syn. blown away, surprised, amazed, impressed)(excessive use of adjectives, in case you didn’t get it the first time)
LOCATION: The Hawaiian Islands are somewhere in the Pacific Ocean about 4 - 5 hours by flight from California. There are 8 main Islands. I visited 3 of them on this trip - The Big Island, Maui and Oahu DURATION OF STAY: 3 weeks PEAK OF MY HOLIDAY: It’s difficult to pick a favorite thing but if I have to choose, it will be snorkelling, surfing lessons or whale watching PIT OF MY HOLIDAY: I did not really hate anything in Hawaii
Location: Island Country in the Caribbean’s Lesser Antilles Duration: 5 days Peak of my Holiday: Waking up to the most amazing views every morning and paddle boarding! Pit of my Holiday: Trying to get a picture with Lewis Hamilton and Rihanna and I did not even get close!
I went to Cuba for 3 weeks in December as part of a school mini term. Twenty-three people from my school went on the trip, which was partly organized by Havana Tours, a state run company for tourists. Almost all the businesses in Cuba are state run, though the government is beginning to give a bit of leeway for some private enterprises. But just a bit. Half of my time was spent in Havana (the capital) and the rest were spent in Santa Clara, Trinidad and Santiago.
