I really meant it when I told everyone I was going to Oregon to drink alllll the Pinot Noir. We arrived on Friday night and three days later we were proud to say we visited 12 wineries in 3 days. And lived to tell the tale. But before you ask if I was dying from a wine hangover. The answer is Coconut Water. It is my hangover cure. But enough about that. Let's talk wine.
The Williamette Valley has been on my radar for a long time so when we found cheap tickets we jumped on the opportunity and decided to spend our long holiday weekend drinking all the Pinot Noir. I think the trip was successful since we managed to visit 12 wineries. Because we covered so much ground I will be writing two posts about our adventures. 12 wineries in 3 days is a bit aggressive. Not sure how I lived to write about it but it was one of the best trips. Before we get into wine lets talk about logistics.
Over the next couple of posts I will be sharing my experience with everyone on my cruise to Cuba. I've been wanting to go to Cuba for a while but was hesitant. Maybe it was because I didn't have the time to plan the perfect Cuba getaway. Maybe it was because there wasn't enough information or all the information I read was conflicting. Some people love it and some people hated it. When my family decided to take a cruise to Cuba I jumped at the opportunity. I mean everything would be planned out and I wouldn't have to worry about anything other than how to spend my days in Havana. Well I started to look things up and found very limited info on this topic as well.
I decided to share my experience with everyone in hopes it will help you plan your vacation to Cuba. Please note if you are from the US be sure to check out the updated rules on travel to Cuba. I went on a people to people visa but at the time of this post that is no longer an option.
I cannot explain why it took me so long but I finally got a chance to spend a weekend in Montreal. It's always been on my places to visit and my friends talk about it all the time but for some reason I never made any plans to visit. Well that has changed. We decided to go on a road trip and it was awesome.
So I used to live in Miami. Everyone asks me why did I leave. Well because New York City is home. But after over 10 years being back in New York it is nice to visit Miami as a tourist. I will blame Ricky Martin for my latest infatuation with Miami. Vente Pa’ Ca is my fave song right now and the music video makes me want to dance in a pool with 100 of my closest friends in Miami. Hehe. I didn't exactly get to dance in a pool with Ricky Martin but I did have a blast sipping Rosé.
So can we talk about the hotel I stayed at for the weekend. It is called The Plymouth and I loved it.
