Cuba People to People, Day 3

Cuba People to People, Day 2

I’ve always had a fondness for sunrise and sunset. As day broke over my second day in Havana, Cuba, I was grateful that my room faced east. I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the sun cresting over the horizon as it created a silhouette of the Russian Embassy. I wanted to shout with glee, […]

Barcelona Favorites: Gaudi

Title: Casa Batllo Story: My first day in Barcelona, while exTitleploring the city on foot, my friend and I happened upon Casa Batllo, a house built by Gaudi.

Title: Vesuvius Panorama

Story: Once of the first things my friend and I did when we arrived in Naples and checked into our hotel was go up to the rooftop deck to see the view.  It was almost indescribably beautiful.  From the deck, we had a panoramic view of the city with Mount Vesuvius in the background. This […]
