CUBA - SEPTEMBER 2010

THIS TIME WE HAD A BIG FAMILY TRIP PLANNED, 9 OF US TRAVELING TOGETHER.. MYSELF AND MY WIFE, MY MOM AND STEPDAD, MY BROTHER AND SISTER, AND MY STEPSISTER AND TWO STEPBROTHERS. WE HAD DONE A SIMILAR TRIP YEARS BEFORE, BUT THAT WAS BEFORE MY WIFE AND I WERE TOGETHER.. SO IT WAS TIME FOR ANOTHER.

I WAS WATCHING THE PACKAGE PRICES FOR SEVERAL MONTHS LEADING UP TO THE TRIP, AND WE ENDED UP BOOKING A COUPLE MONTHS BEFORE FOR AN EXCELLENT PRICE. NINE OF US AT A FOUR STAR ALL INCLUSIVE FOR A WEEK, FOR LESS THAN FIVE GRAND ALL IN. NOT BAD AT ALL. CAN'T BEAT CUBA'S PRICES! THE PARTY STARTED AT THE TORONTO AIRPORT ON THE SATURDAY MORNING.


AND THEN ABRUPTLY CAME TO AN END AS SOON AS MY STEPBROTHER RAN INTO THE DRUG SNIFFING DOG AT THE HOLGUIN, CUBA AIRPORT.


THEY ENDED UP LETTING HIM OFF WITH JUST A FINE, AS THEY ONLY FOUND A SMALL AMOUNT, BUT IT STILL DELAYED HIM AND MY STEPDAD QUITE A BIT.. AND THEY HAD TO TAKE A DIFFERENT BUS TO THE RESORT THAN THE REST OF US. LESSON LEARNED. NO BIG DEAL THOUGH, THE PARTY STARTED BACK UP SHORTLY AFTER ARRIVING AT THE RESORT :)


AND, BY THE WAY, HERE IS WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER CONSUMING MASS QUANTITES OF CUBAN RUM.. JUST THOUGHT I'D USE MY BROTHER AS AN EXAMPLE OF THIS:

AFTER:

HAHA!

SAME AS THE DOMINICAN TRIP, THIS ONE WAS MOSTLY COMPRISED OF THE ABOVE.. PLUS LOTS OF THIS:


SO NOT TOO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT REALLY.. ALTHOUGH ON THE THURSDAY MY STEPDAD AND I DID RENT SCOOTERS FOR A COUPLE HOURS AND RODE INTO TOWN TO GO TO MARKET AND THE BEACH.. WITH MY MOM AND WIFE ON THE BACK.


WE HAD SO MUCH FUN THAT THE NEXT DAY MY WIFE AND I DECIDED TO DO THE SAME THING AGAIN.. EXCEPT THIS TIME WE HEADED INTO THE COUNTRYSIDE A BIT MORE.. THE HILLS GOT SO STEEP THAT THE SCOOTER WOULDN'T GO ANY FURTHER, SO WE HAD TO TURN BACK.


I ALSO SNAPPED LOTS OF PLATE PICS THROUGHOUT THE WEEK..


AND THAT'S PRETTY MUCH IT! LOTS OF PARTYING, LOTS OF SUN.. OVERALL A GREAT GETAWAY FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY.. HERE'S THE GROUP PHOTO. LEFT TO RIGHT: SOME GUY WE MET FROM ENGLAND, STEPDAD (STEVE), MOM (LORI), STEPBROTHER (NATHAN), SISTER (NICOLE), BROTHER (CRAIG), WIFE (HOLLY), MOI, STEPSISTER (STEPHANIE), STEPBROTHER (JUSTIN), GUY FROM ENGLAND'S WIFE.


OH YEA, ALMOST FORGOT.. CHECK OUT ALL THE OLD CARS AT THE AIRPORT. PRETTY COOL :)
