PUERTO RICO 2016-2017

January 24, 2017

Hey guys! welcome back to my blog, I know I haven't posted since November but I'm back! YAY! 

So I went to my motherland Puerto Rico for 2 weeks. I left on Christmas Eve, so I spent Christmas day and New Years over there and it was absolutely amazing! 

In the photo you see above, I was sitting on the roof of El Castillo de San Cristóbal. I went to visit all the historical sites in Old San Juan. In all my years of traveling to Puerto Rico, I've never been to Old San Juan and I was so excited when my dad finally took me there. 

Below are photos I took, that I wanted to share with you guys!  

Statue of Cristóbal Colón 

An overwhelming feeling to be standing here. Makes me feel so proud to be Puerto Rican!

Such a beautiful breeze with an amazing view! My country is just breathtaking

The main entrance to El Castillo de San Felipe del Morro

Cute Iguana right? This little guy was just walking around El Morro, no biggie lol Sike! literally almost had a heart attack when I saw him! Looks small on camera but he was huge!

The Lighthouse!

Tanning on the roof top of El Morro lol

Standing here makes me think of how my ancestors use to walk these very same grounds that I'm walking on, and looked at the same view that I was looking at. A very emotional feeling.

Unfortunately, it's time for me to head back home to the states. I cannot wait to go back to Puerto Rico, it just feels like home to me. I love being there, I love the atmosphere, I love being around my family. This was such an amazing trip, it was like nothing I've ever experienced before; and I've been to Puerto Rico a million times.
