Cuba is a fascinating place, with a rich history; an exotic land, forbidden to Americans. When the travel ban was lifted (which has since been re-instated) my wife Bridget jumped on the opportunity and surprised me with a trip to celebrate our eighth wedding anniversary, little did we know, we would experience a different Cuba than we had heard about.
A common misconception of traveling is that it’s the same as going on vacation, and that it should always be fun. After returning from Cuba, many people were shocked when I told them Bridget and I did not have a “fun” time in Cuba, rather an eye opening experience; an experience that gave us a look (and feel, and smell) into the daily lives of people who are oppressed by their government.
If you are interested in seeing a more in depth look into our experience in Cuba and throughout the world, you can subscribe to our YouTube channel iLa Life. We create travel VLOGS of our journeys around the world and at home, and have seven amazing videos of our day-by-day experiences in Cuba.
