Love travelling family and our hosts Viñales, Cuba

Viñales, Cuba

Viñales, Cuba When people ask us which three places to see in Cuba, we always answer Havana, Viñales, and Trinidad, as each of these places has its own unforgettable flavor. However, although both in Havana and Trinidad it was quite simple to make a list of top ten must see things, Viñales doesn’t fall into […]

Best beaches in Cuba

Best Beaches in Cuba

Best Beaches in Cuba One of the reasons (and there are thousands of them) why we love Cuba is because no matter in which point of the island you are there are not more than 100 km to some beach. And this is the luxury not many countries have. If you ask people, what beaches […]

Welcome to Tbilisi

About happiness of eating solyanka and chebureki sitting on the floor and how we landed in the 18th century Caucasus Farewell Kiev After wandering through beautiful Kiev and putting Zosia to sleep in our hostel room, instead of getting some rest, we somehow miraculously ended up sitting till midnight on the floor in the corridor […]

Things to do in Trinidad

From Cienfuegos to Trinidad we took the Viazul bus. One has to be at the bus stop 30 minutes earlier to “check in,” which is to change your receipt to the actual bus ticket. We as well had to check-in the luggage for 0,50 CUC per piece. The drive from Cienfuegos is not long, moreover […]

Our colectivo, Love travelling family in Cuba

Bay of Pigs, Playa Larga

About broken colectivos, dead crabs, mermaids, and how we didn’t see It coming… On  April 15th 1961 Americans started to put into life their masterplan: invade Cuba and overthrow Fidel Castro. It was a total fiasco from start to finish: planes missed their targets, Castro found out about the invasion in advance and “cleaned” the […]

Plaza de la Revólucion, Che

Vedado

How do we start writing about Vedado? Well, it was a borough of Havana we liked the least (in comparison to the two others we stayed in for longer: La Habana Vieja and Centro Habana). In Vedado all old-Cuban-style glamour and charm is somehow lost under the concrete. Streets are overcrowded, busses and cars too […]

Usually it is like this: people love New York, they go there for one week, come back complaining about the jet lag and pretend how American they became in those few days. Well, my story was totally different. I’d never wanted to go there and New York definitely wasn’t love at first sight. I lived […]
