Ever since laws started loosening up on American travel to Cuba, I have been salivating over the idea of visiting this forbidden country. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from Cuba besides what I’ve seen in American movies about dreamy Havana nights, super strong coffee (yum!), cubano sandwiches, salsa dancing, and a country that seems to still be living in the 1960’s. But all of that sounded extremely inviting, and I couldn’t wait to see this hidden gem for myself.
I started my trip off in Havana – which was the city I was the most excited to see!
I began in Centro Habana, making my way into the Habana Vieja. Following my wanderlust feet, the lines between the two neighborhoods began to blur.
I wandered the streets for hours and hours, getting lost in the beauty that ultimately is…Havana. This city has a pulse of life that beats very strong.
I love stumbling upon local market as I mosey through the streets. I’m obsessed with the vibrant colors of the local fruits and vegetables.
The sounds of la rumba seem to just reverberate off the streets. I found it hard to resist the urge to throw my ambitions to the wind and just dance my way along the cobblestones with a mojito in hand.
Crowded, dirty, sometimes smelly but always enchanting…Havana did not disappoint. I could while away many afternoons just getting lost in its streets.
Over to you! What’s your favorite part about Havana?
