Unlike the impromptu long weekend in Cuba, this is a trip we booked right after we got back from our honeymoon in Italy last May. Our hope is to do a trip somewhere different every year, and start planning it as soon as we get back from the one before. I'd like to get our money's worth from the global traveler's passes we applied for. We'll be gone a week, and I'll be back around after I catch my breath on our return. Hasta pronto, mis amigos!
