Iberostar Mojitio, Cayo Coco, Cuba

Iberostar Mojito is a wonderful resort in Cayo Coco, Cuba. My mom booked our flights and stay at the resort just a couple of days before we left to go there. The all inclusive resort and our flights there and back cost about $3000. The trip lasted a week and was during spring break and a few days after. Here’s some photos from my stay there!

Park Plaza Victoria, Amsterdam

On my trip to Amsterdam in 2015 I stayed at the hotel Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam! The hotel was in a great location for traveling in Amsterdam. I would love to stay here again sometime. Amsterdam was so beautiful, I have some photos just below this paragraph so you can see some of my vacation photos!

During my summer in 2014 I went to Nova Scotia as I do every summer. Although this year I went to Prince Edward Island as well. Some photos and more explanations are just below.

Dalvay By the Sea

Kate Middleton and Prince William had been at this resort before I had. There was a cardboard Kate Middleton and Prince William by the entrance. It was fascinating to know that Royals from England had previously stayed were me and part of my family were. I really enjoyed being so close to the ocean as well. Here are some photos from my stay!

Our other adventures in Prince Edward Island included Anne of Green Gables close to Charlottetown and in Charlottetown. Some photos are here!

Hotel Due Torri, Rome in 2016

I settled into the hotel room at Hotel Due Torri and had gotten ready for the day exploring. I decided to begin the day by walking without a planned direction and within 5 minutes I arrived at the Pantheon. By the Pantheon I enjoyed some gelato.

Rome

On my first night in Rome I visited Trevi Fountain. Around Trevi Fountain was very crowded. There was a movie or commercial shooting there, however I don’t know if thats really the reason for the crowd.

Later in the day I enjoyed a Merangue at Antico Forno.

I began my third day in Rome (July 10, 2016) at Borghese Gardens.

After visiting the Borghese I went on a Viator tour of the Coliseum.

The Fourth day (July 11, 2016) was a trip to Pompeii and a climb to the top of Mount Vesuvius. I didn’t plan my outfit well, but still made it to the top of the Volcano after exploring Pompeii.

The next day (July 12, 2016) started with a Viator tour of the Vatican.

After the tour with Viator I walked around the city and found the Vittoriano.

There was a tour with Viator that was for a dinner at a family’s villa Casa Sospisio. The tour begins as a walk to the villa from a meeting point. Once you arrive at the villa there is a tour of part of the villa. One room in the villa was a theatre. Theres a part in the theatre where they discovered a ruin that was hidden by a wall before. Once you’ve been shown around the villa there is dinner. A good part to know about is that purchasing this tour helps the family keep the villa as their home.

For the rest of the last day I had in Rome I visited the Capitoline Museum and Hotel de Russie for treats.

Oak Bay Beach Hotel, Victoria

I visited Victoria, British Columbia in April. The reason I went to Victoria this year was my Grandma and Grandpas art show. A fun coincidence is that in 2014 I was in Victoria just a month earlier from when I went this year. Down below is a collection of pictures of my holiday in Victoria besides the art show.

My mom saw the classes online and signed me up for it before we arrived in Puerto Vallarta. It was nice getting to make pieces that I could take home and use. The classes were also a lot easier than I expected, probably because of the teachers.

A Viator Vatican Tour

Vatican city is the smallest country in the world, it is also located in Rome. The outside of the Vatican doesn’t really seem real to me and my pictures don’t do it justice at all. If you plan on looking inside, taking a tour will fast forward you into the Vatican. You’ll be saving yourself from lost time and fainting from the heat, which I almost did a couple of times.

The area shown below is off limits to public, however it is allowed with the tour.
