Photo Credit: Lori Speirs, TWI Hippies Today’s Wanderlust Wednesday post, is by guest writer Talya Meltem. Talya is cofounder of the TWI Hippies  blog.  In her article, she shares her experience of visiting Cuba. We made it to Cuba. Our lifelong dreams of seeing the famed colourful old time cars and Spanish colonial architecture of La Habana Vieja (Old Havana), had finally came true when we stepped foot onto Cuban land, last Friday. It was hard not to stare at the beautiful people, or tune into every word that we recognized as vocabulary from Spanish Class years ago. We were greeted by two friendly taxi men, holding up a sign reading: “Lori Speirs.” By this time it had started raining cats and dogs, and even as they kindly helped us get into the cab without getting wet, it still hadn’t hit us that we were really in Cuba.

Connect With Nature

Happy World Environment Day! Every day, we should all make an effort to spend some time in nature.  Today in particular, is a perfect time to connect with nature and celebrate the beauty and importance of the environment.  There is no planet B, so it is vital that we take care of our environment.   For me, my favorite place to connect with nature is the beach. I love the ocean!! Growing up on an island I have been blessed to be surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and I can’t help but gravitate towards the sea. Huge thank you to Lori Speirs from TWI Hippies  for making this video!!! It was a great collaborative project!

We have the best time when we all come together to collaborate on projects: creative sessions, photoshoots, filming featurettes, writing content, editorials, sharing blogging tips, and business tips.  We brainstorm together and the inspiration just flows.  We all find ourselves motivated, inspired and empowered.  We all have our own talents and areas of strength …
