My husband works for an airline and so we have the fantastic ability to be able to hop on planes when we feel the urge to do some travelling, but since work has been insane for months running off to exotic places has not been an option for me. My husband on the other had went to Taipei a couple of weeks ago….lucky him 😛
However as summer quickly approaches my work load has slowed down a bit and I’m able to jet away for a few days, so we have booked a 2 day romantic getaway to Havana, Cuba. Woo hoo! I have been to Havana twice before (once on my honeymoon last year) and so I know how fantastic the city is and being a lover of the 1950’s you can’t get any better then going to Havana.
So as my countdown begins (I leave June 30th) I thought I would share some pictures from my Honeymoon and some awesome vintage photos as well. Enjoy!
This is yours truly outside a pretty building in Havana. I’m wearing a 1940’s WWII Era Vintage Style 2 Piece Cabana Dress that I had custom made from Etsy seller “Time Machine Vintage“. My purse is a fun straw beach purse I bought in Toronto at “Cabaret Vintage“.
LOVE the 1950’s signs all around the city. This is a good example of one we found while wondering the city.
This was the first 1950’s car I saw when I first visited Cuba (this pic is from my first trip about 4 years ago). The streets are filled with so many, but most of them are NOT in this good of a condition.
View from our Rooftop restaurant at our hotel in Havana
The below pic is the view from the little restaurant we picked to have a drink and a slice of pizza (which was very good). It was clearly someone’s rooftop patio of their own personal home where they put up a bar and some tables for eating (which is now allowed more and more in the city). We LOVED it here.
The famous “Obispo” street in Havana. You could walk down this street and hear and see amazing Cuban music AND dancing everywhere you turned. We did sort of a mini “bar crawl” to check places out the first time we were in Havana.
Have you ever been to Havana? If so where were your favorite places to eat and drink?
I will now leave you with the Havana Scene from Guys and Dolls…love this scene 🙂
