Ever since coming back from studying abroad, I’ve had the desire to keep traveling. Since my university’s winter break is 4 weeks long, I thought it would be the perfect time to get some traveling in. Early September, I started planning the trip with my friend, Jaini. After completing a lot of research on places we could possibly go to, we decided on Puerto Rico.
We wanted to go somewhere that was warm, safe, and not too expensive; and Puerto Rico seemed like the perfect place. The trip was 9 days long. We flew to Puerto Rico on the morning of December 19th and returned home on December 28th. In order to conserve money, we decided to stay at an Airbnb in Condado, San Juan. We mostly traveled within San Juan. However, we did complete excursions to other parts of Puerto Rico as well.
Below are some pictures from the trip. Enjoy!
