Secret Cuban Island Cayo Largo

It’s been 5 years since I launched a tradition of spending our summer holidays in winter. In our native country the climate is severe in January and February so it’s become a trend in young Ukrainian families to have extended winter holidays somewhere in Asia or South America.

Visiting Cuba was my teenage dream, all those photos of vintage cars and post-colonial architecture.. who haven’t been allured by them tell me! So, it was decided 2016 would start on Cuba. Our trip started on the 9th of January and lasted 3 weekss, but this post is about a lazy part of vacation – Cayo Largo retreat.

Which is why we never take our pets on vacation with us.

Trakai Castle in autumn

Golden Days in Trakai Castle

Autumn has finally come. Blink, and the palette utterly changed. Beautiful days, aren’t they?

This reminded me about charming autumn in Lithuania, the country loved by many Ukrainians for its political loyalty and support for the country; as well as for magic spirit of Vilnius, sea breeze in Palanga, delightful cuisine and great variety of craft beers.

Thanks to my friend Marina and her passion for planning we managed to see some of the most beautiful spots and get into world famous restaurants and bars within only 2 days.
