I flew home to Toronto for my winter break at the end of last year. We had been planning our family trip to Havana since the summer, and I was anticipating the uninterrupted quality time with my mom, her partner Brad, my brother, his girlfriend Lucy, and my best friend since birth, Carly. After spending some frigid days in Toronto and Hamilton, we flew south with no real plan. We had a lovely colonial Air B&B in Vedado as a base for exploring the city. The trip met all my expectations; Havana is a brilliant town to wander through aimlessly, and our lack of structure benefited us as we wound down together.
Here are some of my favourite photos from Havana, with most of my favourite people. It truly is the most photogenic city I’ve ever visited.
