An unedited, unfiltered, beautiful Key Largo sunset.
I left home without a set itinerary and only a vague sense of where I wanted to go. People ask me how I ended up planning my trip, and there were a lot of things that influenced me (weather, national parks, gut feelings).
One of the biggest factors was weddings because I would have to fly all the way back home. But it was worth it. I mean, when a Chinese Canadian marries a French Canadian, you get some ridiculously awesome wedding food - a traditional eight course Chinese banquet followed by poutine. And dude was serious about the poutine. The wedding was in Ontario and the groom’s mother brought in fresh cheese curds from Quebec the morning of. This is why I love you, Canada.
It wasn’t all about the steaks - there was also the wine. Cafayate has a billion bodegas offering wine tasting (this number is accurate). Also the hiking there is amazeballs.
Sidenote: I was confused when people kept talking about bodegas because I was thinking of NYC style bodegas. But bodega there means winery and not convenience store. Learning is fun!
