It took nearly 24 hours of travel to get home, and with a 5 hour time difference we were pretty knackered. Took this on the coach, before the last 4 hours of travel back to Cardiff. Tanned and with my hotel wristband a bit battered after 2 weeks!
We started our 24hour travel home today, but not before getting the most of the sun! We get offered fresh coconuts by the workers as they cut them down. They literally hack the top off then put a straw in it!
Had another beach day today as it was our last full day in Cuba, but before relaxing I went on a snorkelling trip where we road on a catamaran to deeper waters, where we were surrounded by loads of tropical fish the top picture is me, if you can’t tell)! The boys could hear myContinue reading “25/06/11”
We went for a trip to Cardenas today. A quite, traditionally Cuban city (although it’s more like a town) outside of Varadero. I really enjoyed seeing less touristy parts of Cuba as they showed a lot more personality and history.
We swam with dolphins! I’ve never done it before, and didn’t really know what to expect, but they were lovely! Like puppies, but more soggy.. and bigger. They were really playful, and seemed very happy with the trainers. They swam behind us and pushed us forward on their noses before chucking us up in theContinue reading “23/06/11”
A whole beach day today, hired a pedalo, kayaks and snorkels with my sister, all included with the hotel, it was a fun day! Only got pictures on the underwater camera which I’ll upload another time. So the pictures are my favourite 2 of the sunset we watched while eating tea at an Italian ‘themed’Continue reading “22/06/11”
Today we got a CoCo taxi (motorbike and cab) into Varadero for a wander round Parque Josone (a beautiful places with picturesque lakes). In the evening we went to the beach to watch the sunset before dinner, how romantic!
Another beach and pool day, it’s a hard life! This is one of the restaurants within the grounds, I didn’t get to go as I was ill, but my Mum and Sister loved it, and the people made the food right in front of them.
Went round Varadero in the morning before it got too hot. The picture is of the church in Varadero, we also visited the local market. It’s become really easy to get a licence to sell things from your home now, so a lot of people have craft markets in their front garden.
Another beach/pool day but also with a trip to the shop. We see these lizards all around the place, they’re very cute, but you can’t get too close before they run away up a wall or under rocks.
