havana, cuba


Cuba was one of the coolest (and definitely one of the most interesting) cities that I’ve ever been to. It’s like a time warp - a city stuck in the 1950s. The best way to describe Cuba is just simply “cool!" When you think of Cuba, don’t think “luxurious vacation” by any means - it’s definitely not one of the easiest places to travel to with it’s outdated technological landscape, lack of strong english speakers, old buildings, etc… but it’s definitely worth the trip.

I know with Trump's new policy change this summer, traveling to Cuba seems a bit harder. However, Joe and I traveled there with the Journalism visa, not the people-to-people visa that most people go on. My understanding is that Trump has removed the people-to-people (educational) visa options for Americans, but you can still apply to go under the Journalism visa, especially if you are a blogger or writer! Read more here to find out all you need to know, as I'm not fully up to date on the policy!
