Havana, Cuba!

I went to Cuba, you guys! Actually, I was there just over one week ago and the impression was so deep that I wanted to post about it right away. I realize that there are several trips that I haven’t posted or edited yet, but this one meant something deeper to me and I didn’t want to wait!

You see, Cuba has been shrouded in mystery for me and for most Americans. I honestly didn’t know much about it, but when my friend mentioned she and her friends were booking a trip, I knew I couldn’t miss it. After attaining the necessary paperwork and visas, we booked our flights and found ourselves there in no time. It was a short 43 minute flight from Miami, so it was the perfect way to spend a February weekend away from chilly Chicago.

To say that this was the most enlightening trip of my adult life would be an understatement and I am still processing it all. The main thing I learned was that Cuba is a welcoming, vibrant and resilient country which has me hoping that seeing these photos will inspire you to visit and go explore. Plus, I have the best guide that will help you along with it all. Just send me a note and I am happy to share! I cannot wait to go back.
