It's hard to believe that this time a week ago I was dozing on the white sandy beaches in the warm Cuban weather. Shoes were optional (unless, you wanted to enter the buffet) and music was blasting and waves were rolling and crashing all around me and my friends. I could finally understand the quote by Isak Dinesen that says, "The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea," because there was plenty of that on my grad trip. Sweat from playing beach volleyball and lounging under the hot sun. Tears of laughter were shed everyday with my friends. The salty sea water was our best friend throughout our entire stay.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and so the best way for me to share with you how I feel after a week spent in paradise is simply to show you. Take a look at the first of two parts and let me know in the comments where you went for your graduation trip/spring break.
