Aaaaand we’re back! Please excuse us for our brief hiatus while we were in Cuba. Internet is scarce and expensive, so we couldn’t update as often as we’d liked. But we are back in action and have been collecting so many fun stories and photos to share. Cuba was truly indescribable. But this is a travel site and that’s kind of what we do, so I should probably give it a shot.
Before we left we struggled to find any decent information on Cuba. Much of what we found was contradictory and confusing. Almost everything we read warned us of shockingly high prices, the bland food and the difficulty moving around the country (all myths we’ve debunked in this informative article). We were pretty unsure of what to expect when we flew over from Cancun, but we braced ourselves for two weeks of serious haggling.
It only took one day of walking around Havana for us to fall in love and decide to extend our trip by a week. It only took a few more days for Havana to shoot to the top of our list of favorite cities. The next 3 weeks were spent staying with local families, drinking some dangerously cheap (and delicious!) rum, learning how to smoke cigars without having coughing fits, stepping all over each others’ feet while attempting to salsa, eating 20 cent street pizza and basically falling in love with Cuba. I won’t give too much away here because we have lots of exciting Cuba photos and posts to come. Hope you enjoy the photos!
Also, this week we decided to make our gallery a bit more personal by adding more photos of ourselves. What do you think? Do you want to see more photos of us? Or should we keep our ugly mugs out of the picture? Let us know!
