I went to Cuba a couple months ago, right before the holidays. It was definitely an experience! People have asked me questions about planning their own trip to Cuba, and a lot of the questions were ones I had before my trip so I wrote up a little guide to help people curious to visit Cuba on their own.
Villa Tolomei was our home during our trip to Florence, Italy. It's such a beautiful villa! Even the drive in to get to the front desk is beautiful, and really makes you feel like you're on a beautiful little escape.
While in Florence, my friends and I took a day trip out to the Chianti region to take a cooking class. We spent the day cooking at an adorable villa that had a fantastic patio for enjoying the beautiful greenery of Chianti in between our cooking and eating.
We made pasta from scratch, and made a variety of dishes including panzanella (salad made with soaked stale bread) and a white bean pasta dish.
