Puerto Rico Diary Part 2: VSJ


It's been a week since my return from my much needed vacation in Puerto Rico and I'm going through serious withdrawal. One of my favorite places to visit every time I go back home is Old San Juan. Sure, it's a little touristy, but it's so rich with over 500 years of history and beautiful hidden corners. I have so much fun discovering buildings I hadn't seen before or rediscovering places I hadn't visited in so many years. The cobblestone streets, colorful old Spanish buildings with restaurants, bars, and homes just make me feel like I'm in a historical paradise. For this shoot, Kat and I are wearing shorts (I had a polka dot romper). It was the hottest day while I was there and it actually broke records, so you can imagine how quickly we ran from bar to bar grabbing a cold drink between takes. 

Ha pasado una semana desde mi regreso de mis vacaciones necesarias en Puerto Rico y ya estoy extrañando. Uno de mis lugares favoritos que tengo que visitar cada vez que regreso es el Viejo San Juan. Claro, es un poco turístico, pero es tan rico con sobre 500 años de historia y bellezas escondidas. Me divierte tanto descubrir edificios nunca antes vistos y redescubrir lugares que no había visto en años. Las calles de adoquines, edificios coloridos antiguos de estilo español con sus restaurantes, barras y residencias me hacen sentir que estoy caminando en un paraíso histórico. Para este shoot, Kat y yo llevábamos pantalones cortos (yo con un romper de puntos). Fue el día más caluroso de mi visita, hasta rompió récord. Así que se pueden imaginar cuán rápido escapamos del calor brincando de local en local en busca de una bebida refrescante entre tomas.

    1. HAHA! Walking on cobblestone in heels isn't ideal, that's for sure, but there is a technique I mastered when I was young. Only walk on your tip toes and don't dig the heel in. And hop on the sidewalk everytime you can! LOL
