Yay I’m Going to Cuba, Again!

My two weeks in Cuba in 2013 has been one of my favourite trips, ever. It’s a place I’d always wanted to go and it definitely didn’t disappoint. So good for me, I’m going back!

This time it’s with my dearest mother. We’re going to drink Havana rum mojitos on the beach up in Veradero for a week and spend a day or two exploring the city too.

Chilling in Havana

My mum is very excited. She’s actually never flown longhaul before and is a bit nervous about the toilet on the plane flushing her down (seriously). I’ve explained to her that longhaul planes are a lot better than Ryanair and easyJet, And we’re flying with Virgin Atlantic anyway, who have nice planes with at least an inch of space. Hope it’s as good a plane as the one I flew to Montreal on – it was a new one with a really good version of Tetris on the entertainment system, had a great time!

Day trip to Havana

I’m excited to show her round the Havana I loved way back when, and to drive round the city in one of those cool cars. I’m also excited to do nothing as I plan to disconnect (Wi-Fi is rubbish in Cuba) and make the most of the beach and the fancy hotel we’re staying in. Maybe I’ll even make a start on one of those books I keep buying on my Kindle and never even getting round to downloading, never mind reading?

So yeah, that’s where I’ll be for the next week if you want me.

Hasta Luego!

    Ah, I love Cuba. I've visited twice (once in 2005 and again in 2007) and it is by far my favorite country. And that is saying so much! I'm dying to go back enjoy it for me!

      Ar that's cool. I'm interested to go back, obviously, as last time I was there everyone was wittering on about how it would change in the next few years and you need to go now. I want to see if anything actually has changed. I think it's too soon.

      Thanks Angelica – it was great to be offline for a week too, although I have so much to catch up on now! Worth it. We had an absolutely brilliant week. I hope you get to go some time :)

    Cuba is high on my list at the moment, I can't wait to see your posts! I'm also holiday-ing with my mum for the first time next month - well, for the first time since I had a choice in the matter... Have a great trip!

      Ah you guys will have a brilliant time. I loved being on holiday with my mum and we're pretty lucky to be able to do that! Enjoy it all!

    Ahh, I had to choose between Cuba and Japan for my honeymoon and Japan won! Still hoping to make it to Cuba one day though, and hopefully before it changes too much...

      If I had to choose I'd go for Japan too, to be honest. Cuba is awesome and would definitely be on my B List of countries but Japan is well up there. Both pretty different though so worth going to check it out!
