Our trip was amazing. This was my first tropical vacation ever, and Brett's first time in Cuba as well. We had so much fun, and Cuba is such a cool country. We stayed at Iberostar Playa Alameda in Varadero. The resort was great and we found the food to be really good (especially the croissants and breakfast... I ate them every single day). We really don't have any complaints. But a picture does say a thousand words, so here are some pics!

|Some serious humidity hit us when we landed at Varadero airport!|
|Thank goodness for air conditioned buses!|
|The central check in area.|
|Main courtyard - also, this was where you can find the best sangria I have ever tasted.|
|The pool water was unbelievably clean.|
|My first ever real swim in the ocean. It was amazing!|

Have you gone on any winter holidays this year? Or are you planning any? I would love to hear about where you are going!
