Design Travler: {San Juan Puerto Rico}

Posted July 27, 2012 by Christina

Mostly because I am pretty sure that this has been one of the longest weeks of my life and because I know that there is just more to come, I am dreaming of our relaxing days on vacation.  I fell for Old San Juan in Puerto Rico when we visited.  The buildings were colorful and the sea was beautiful there.  We visited the Fort and walked through the old town for a few hours in the steaming heat!  I do recommend an afternoon there if you are planning a visit.

I will finish up this "series" of posts on Puerto Rico in the next few weeks with a post about the Island of Vieques and a little more detail on the fabulous design of the hotel we stayed at.  (Sorry that most of the pictures are instagram, even though I love it, I left without the battery for my good camera so I had to improvise.)

Wishing you a weekend filled with long beach days and warm evenings!

Puerto Rico looks amazing! There are certain places that will always take our breath away! This looks like one of those places! That’s how I feel about St. John…I can’t wait to return! Hope your weekend is wonderful wherever you are!

Hi Christina,
I read the last post first which made me laugh because my brain is like that ALL the time! haha! The photographs are amazing! Hey, leave the “good camera” behind,at least for these kinds of shots. The instagram gave them an added old-world kind of enigmatic enhancement. They look like someone spent hours photo shopping them. Who knew? Enjoy your time at the show. “My show” is the NY Gift Show which I look forward to every August and January. Best, Laurel

I love San Juan, I’ve been there twice and its one of my favorite places to photograph. I couldn’t manage to put down the camera! Your photos look beautiful even with Instagram, I can only imagine what you could’ve done with a regular camera. Hope you continue to have a great weekend!
