THORWBACK THURSDAY

With this cold weather still blowing through, I'm seriously craving some hot sun & a beach. Today I thought it would be fun to share a great trip, Michelle & I took to Cuba back in 2011. I want this SO badly right now as I sit here bundled up...wahhh. 

This was such a hilarious trip for us. We had just graduated College & were ready to celebrate! We tagged along with Michelle's parents to sunny Varadero, Cuba... to a couples only resort! We played it off. I don't think anyone was too concerned there. We spent the week soaking up the sun, drinking countless pina coladas & nearly sailing completely off the resort waters. 

That sailing story is actually quite a funny one. We wanted to go out on the ocean in a little boat just the two of us. They make sure you know how to sail...well we claimed we did! We do not know how to sail! We went so far out we couldn't see the bottom anymore & kept claiming "WE'RE IN A DARK SPOT A DARKKKK SPOT"! Clearly thinking we were going to get eaten by sharks, we tried waving for help. The only person who was watching was Michelle's Mom, who just so happened to see us & starting snapping photos with my camera, not knowing we couldn't figure out how to steer the boat in the heavy wind. We eventually made it back, but it was a struggle! I ended up getting out of the boat to drag us back. Oh man haha. 

The rest of the trip was amazing! From meeting lots of new people, to dancing our nights away at the Disco, we had so much fun. Check out some pictures from our adventure below.
