I'm back!

We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in Cayo Guillermo, Cuba. Our vacation started out on a rocky note as on our bus ride to the resort, we hit a pig! It was a small boar and our poor bus driver was very distressed. But from there, things definitely improved. We spent every day on the beach, reading, sunning and swimming. It was heavenly! I finished 6 books, met some fabulous new people and drank lots of slushy drinks (and mojitos!).

Our spot - we sat here every day because there was a little shade

Posing for my hubby

Hanging out on Hemingway pier, watching the sun set. It was windy like this almost every day.

Remberto, the pizza guy. Remberto made us fresh pizzas almost every night and delievered them to our table. He didn`t speak much English and our Spanish was rusty, but that didn`t seem to matter. He was so much fun!

We also got a geography lesson while on holiday as we met a lovely couple - Morag and Chris - who live on the Channel Islands, specifically Guernsey, between the UK & France. Neither Jason or I had heard of the Channel Islands so it was interesting to chat with them.

We had such amazing weather - only 20 minutes of rain the entire trip. And while it was windy every day, it was still beautiful.

We will definitely head back to Cuba!
