Last year, I embarked on the journey of my lifetime: a two-week trip to Europe with my best friend Pablo (Max, el Viajero, in Youtube).
I had been dreaming about visiting Europe since I was 17 when my aunt gifted me a travel magazine about Vienna. Living in Cuba, I never thought I could ever go there.
But 20 years later, my dream came true: I finally got to experience all of Europe's beauty, culture, and history.
My Europe trip was filled with one incredible experience after another. In two weeks, Pablo and I visited nine countries. We included some of the most iconic sites, from the Colosseum in Rome to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The classics. It was an awe-inspiring experience.
Everywhere I went, friendly faces and fascinating stories surrounded me. By the third country, I realized I needed to create a powerful visual and emotional narrative of my trip.
I was in awe of the stunning architecture, the breathtaking landscapes, the incredible food, and the vibrant cultures. I could feel the ancient history. As a professional portrait photographer, I wanted to document the people, the places, and the feelings.... and I did.
When I look at these photos, the memories and experiences are still as vivid and meaningful as ever.
It was a unique and powerful experience that I will never forget.
