Trinidad stole my heart – what to eat & drink

As I mentioned in post about what to do while you’re in Trinidad, it stole my heart. I still think about spending time there now and it was 100% my favourite place in Cuba. So, you know how to spend your time there but what to do when you fancy stopping for some food and drink?

Day 9 on our grand Chinese adventure and our last day in Xi’an before flying to Chengdu/Panda land. Today was somewhat a day of additional new activities that weren’t things we had planned to come to China specifically for but were added on during my extensive planning stage with some help of our guide.
