Postcards From Cuba

Cuba. How I miss thee. You welcome me like one of your own, with a smile, a laugh, a warm embrace. The sun tickled my skin glisten and the gentle breeze made me giddy with laughter. Cuba. You move my heart, reach deep within the soul. We danced in squares until the small hours and walked the…

Trinidad, Cuba- Where Time Stands Still

Trinidad, Cuba. A land where time stood still waiting for us to see what was left behind. Where Havana has my heart, Trinidad sips into my soul.

A City of 100 Churches- Lucca, Italy

Okay, I only have two for you. Lucca is a town of gothic churches, 100 of them reportedly, and the home of Madam Butterfly composer Giacomo Puccini. By now you ought to know that I love Italy. Much more than France. I love Florence much more than Paris. Paris is beautiful, I’ll always give it…

Pretzels On Stained Windows- Freiburger Münster
