New York: Beyonce, who celebrated her fifth wedding anniversary last month in Cuba with her husband Jay-Z, has shared pictures of the controversial trip on Tumblr.

The trip drew fire from conservative Cuban-American lawmakers.

The photos feature the pair looking stylish and effortlessly fresh as they make their way through Old Havana, the New York Post reported.

The 31-year-old singer, who has since defended her vacation, said in a `Good Morning America` interview that she found criticism of their outing to Cuba "shocking."

"You know, it was such a beautiful trip," she said.

Beyonce revealed that she met some incredible children and entrepreneurs.

She also asserted that during the trip, she learned a lot about so many people and the country.

A half-century-old US embargo against Cuba prevents most Americans from traveling there, but the couple got permission to visit the country, through the US Treasury Department`s Office of Foreign Assets Control.
