Cuba: This and That

Although I can keep going for weeks, I’m going to wrap up the Cuba series with this post of random images.


The only type of shoes you'll need the whole time you are there.



There are so many places to go and so many things to do...



...but the first thing you should do is relax.



Some people complain about the food but I didn't mind it at all.



I don't know what it is about it, but coffee in Cuba is so delicious. Some of the best I've ever had.



Making new friends along the way is always fun.

I love these little critters! Cuteness overload!

So adorable!

"I'm all ears"


Palm trees everywhere.



And my favourite fruit that costs a fortune here is found growing everywhere in Cuba.



Happiness is the stunning beach on sunny days.



And the stunning beach even on those rare overcast mornings.



Make it a point to visit Havana if you're close enough. You will love it.



You can go sailing. Or renew your vows on the beach. Maybe both at the same time? Perhaps.



Make sure to take evening strolls along the beach to watch the sun go down over the ocean.



From the beaches to the people to the history to the weather – and everything else in between – a visit to Cuba will stay with you forever.



I hope you’ve enjoyed this small glimpse into a very unique and beautiful country.

Have a beautiful day, everyone.

    1. They sure are. One of the first things I said when we arrived in Cuba is "PALM TREES!" LOL...

  4. I have greatly enjoyed seeing your photos from Cuba. It is obvious that you had a great time there. It's on my short list of places to go, especially before mobs of American tourists swarm the place.

    1. It's going to be really busy eventually, and it's a good idea to visit before the madness begins!

    1. I figured it's time. The photos will start to become repetitive and that's not fun.

    1. A camera and flip flops...the two best items for this type of trip!

  12. I like the way you travel. You get out in the country and find out who the people are and how they live. You come back with a far greater understanding of many things including yourself.

    1. That's my favourite way to travel. Staying at the resort and hanging around the beach is nice, but you don't get a feel for the area.

  15. Martha, I never wanted to go to Cuba before....that is until you did and shared your wonderful experience with us.
    great photos per usual....I really liked the setting of the 'relaxing' one with your husband and also the framed sailboat one. Your eye is very skilled.
    have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thanks, Jim. I've been practicing photography for years, so let's hope I'm better now! LOL... Cuba is very beautiful. Not just because of its beaches but also because of its uniqueness.

  16. Being from the U.S., I knew so little about the beauty of Cuba. Thanks, Martha, for the learning experience for me! Once the U.S. visitors really start to come, things will change for Cuba, hopefully economically anyway. But it is just a natural, beautiful place right now and I hope it stays that way for the future!

    1. I hope it stays that way, too. There is no western feeling to it and that's one thing that I like very much about it. I'd hate for that to change. What I do want for Cuba is the economical boost that more tourism will bring.
