I’m so excited to finally start telling you about my amazing November trip to Cuba and Mexico. A 30th birthday celebration for many of us, it was also a Mexican reunion with some of my closest friends who are still living in New Zealand.
But before we met up with the Kiwis, Anna, Jamie and I flew to Cuba (via Madrid) for a speedy 3 days to experience a little of this fascinating country. This first post is some of my favourite photos from Havana – not only do I really want to share these with you, but also I managed to break my arm while running on Easter Monday, so typing is a little slow!
Flower-sellers in Habana Vieja, the Old Town
I loved the music in the streets and floating out of windows all over Havana
I was worried before we arrived that Havana might not live up to the picture I imagined of a colourful city lined with gorgeous classic cars – but it absolutely did!
I loved the gorgeous art-deco style signs
The many colourful doors were a blogger’s dream!

The beautiful Plaza Vieja
Pretty Anna and pretty pastels
Jamie found the coolest colour scheme
The impressions that I took away from our short time there were of a whirl of colour and music. Crumbling buildings next to brightly-painted facades. Stunning ballet. Horse-drawn carts. Delicious seafood. And most of all, those gorgeous classic cars, from the highly polished to the barely held together. Have you visited Havana? Is it like you pictured?
And anyone got any tips for the super-quick healing of broken bones? (Lactose-intolerant friendly preferred!)
