Our day in Cienfuegos should actually be called our morning in Cienfuegos! After a night at sea, we arrived around 6 am in Cienfuegos. Unfortunately, in order to reach our next port of call (and arrive back in Miami on time), we only had about 6 hours to explore the city. Before leaving for Cuba, I had scoured the internet for blog posts, articles, and personal advice on what to do in Cienfuegos with such a short amount of time!
A few weeks ago, the Prince and I headed to Belgium to celebrate our one-year anniversary and had the most romantic weekend in Bruges! Can you believe it’s been one year already?! What a wonderful, crazy, adventurous first year it has been! We started our relationship while living in two different countries, visited six additional countries together, and I ended up moving to Germany!
When I was younger, my mom used to take me and my siblings to a local farm after school once or twice during the autumn season. I remember getting apples, apple cider, caramel apples, and everything in-between! It is still such a fond memory for me and something I reflect on often.
In case you’re not following along on my Instagram, I’m in CUBA right now! My family and I are on a one-week cruise around the entire island for my mom’s 60th birthday. We spent two days in Havana and will be pulling into Cienfuegos today. Tomorrow, we will spend the entire day in Santiago de Cuba before docking back in Miami on Sunday.
I’ve stalled on writing this post for almost 3 months because I’m not really sure how to express myself. Blogging, especially travel blogging, gives me the opportunity to experience and reflect on the cultural, historical, and political events of each country that I visit. However, I think visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau left me speechless and wordless because I knew that what I wrote wouldn’t be adequate enough to capture all the feelings, emotions, thoughts, and imagery.
