Cuba

We have been curious about Cuba for some time and spring 2015 was a good opportunity to visit Cuba. As US and Cuba have declared that they will gradually reduce the embargo we wanted to see how Cuba looks like before US tourist invation. We spend intensive two weeks travelling from Pino del Rio on the west of Cuba, Havana and to Santiago de Cuba on the east side.

    Thanks a lot for all memories. Just on the spot. Lovely to see them all again.

    At the moment I prepare myself for next journey to Centralamerica. Lonley Planet is a good help and guide together with the program.
    Wish You all the best.
