“Cuba is such a beautiful country, and everywhere you go, there’s music and people dancing – especially in Havana.”
- Julia Sawalha -
Below are some images taken in Havana, Cuba’s capital; the highlight of our trip. Please excuse the quality. They were taken hastily because we were pressed for time, and they were shot with a point and shoot camera. Nonetheless, it'll give you a small glimpse of this amazing city. So, away we go with many photos and very few words.
One of the most interesting sightings is all the old cars that are in mint condition. What a treat.
Havana is the largest city in the Caribbean, and one of the most culturally rich in the world. It was founded by the Spanish in the 1500's and has a very fascinating history.
This colourful capital is known for the Spanish colonial architecture of its Old Havana core, which we had an opportunity to visit.

Many of the old buildings have undergone restoration and they are spectacular.
When you walk through Havana, you feel as if you've gone back in time. It is unlike any other area in the Caribbean.
You can spend an entire week in this city and still not have enough time to fully explore and appreciate everything it has to offer.

I can’t stress enough the absolute need to spend some time in Havana if you ever find yourself in Cuba. Only then will you feel like you’ve truly visited this beautiful country.
Have a lovely day, friends.
