Josh and I spent the past two weeks on vacation, island hopping in the Caribbean. This was my anniversary gift from him, and it was truly amazing. We started our trip off by spending four days in Puerto Rico. We stayed in Old San Juan, which is so beautiful I dream about it. We celebrated 2010 by exploring the town, enjoying a lovely Indian dinner whilst being entertained by live belly dancing, and rang in the new year at a huge celebration in a town square. It was quite perfect.
The rest of our time in Old San Juan was split between the beach and exploring the town. We were able to relax in the sun, learn about the history of the city, and enjoy the beauty it has to offer. We loved everything from the old stone streets that run through the city, to the gorgeous doors on every house (seriously, I am obsessed with doors now and one day will have amazing doors at my house), to the night life. They had some type of outdoor activity going on every night; fairs, parties, boardwalk events, live entertainment local food, etc. There were parks and squares everywhere, beautiful statues at every corner, and mature landscaping lining every street. I was in Heaven.
If you ever get the chance to visit Old San Juan, please do. It is an amazing town filled with beauty, culture and history. I loved every second of it.
