Although I have 36 posts left to publish, the bulk are about Asia – mostly Japan. I’m trying to mix things up a bit with a variety of posts from different continents so y’all don’t get bored. This is the last post I have about the Caribbean and the second last from the continent of North America. Hopefully I will go back there sometime. My husband is Canadian so I will definitely go back there at some point but we don’t have any plans right now.

We went to San Juan in December 2014 on a family vacation. It was just a stopover as the cruise we took started there. I think we only had one or two nights. My memory is awful. I really had no idea what to expect as this was my first time going to America.
I wasn’t expecting to find anything cute at all, but I was lucky – the old town area of San Juan was full of cats! I usually try not to touch stray cats because of the possibility of disease, however I usually end up caving to temptation in the end – this time was no exception.
They seemed healthy enough, there were plenty of restaurants around to provide scraps of food for them.
Although most of my photos are of cats, it’s a beautiful place apart from that. It sort of reminded me of Spain or Portugal but more spread out. The weather was perfect so we just walked around the town for the entire day.
I really regret not petting this huge lizard, I didn’t know if they bite or not so I was scared but apparently they’re not dangerous. I don’t think I’ve ever petted an animal like this before, I’ve wanted to go to a reptile café in Japan for ages now but they always end up being too out of the way to fit into our plans.
As it was December when we visited, everything was decorated for Christmas. At the time, I found it weird to be celebrating Christmas with Summer-y weather, but I’ve gotten used to that now living in the southern hemisphere.
Let me leave you with the last few cat photos. I do have more but I had to restrain myself in this post. I guess there’s no hiding the fact that I’m a crazy cat lady. Or crazy animal lady as I like many other creatures just as much as cats.
This is why I can’t be a “proper” travel blogger (nor have I any interest in being one). You didn’t learn a thing about San Juan, did you? Instead of sharing photos of the historical sites we saw, I’ve taken pictures of stray cats rummaging through trash. Honestly, I didn’t even take pictures of the tourist spots, you can see where my priorities are…
