Our first morning in Cuba was just as warm and bright as I had hoped for. We stayed at Melia Las Antillas in Varadero – an adults only resort about 2.5 hours from Havana. As soon as we arrived, our internal clock seemed to have instinctively switched to “vacation mode” because the concept of time seemed especially relative and unimportant – a mental state that in Cuba promotes both relaxation and…hunger. We kept missing breakfast for the first half of the vacation so our mornings began with a cappuccino or Spanish coffee and a brownie; talk about a well balanced diet.

This was my first day look of the trip. In the tropics I love vibrancy and color so I added the headscarf and the bright green earrings for a little boost of both.
