One of the highlights of last year was traveling to Cuba. Stepping foot in a country that is off limits to Americans was a new feeling for me. There are legal means to travel to Cuba but I would not have qualified so I had to go illegally. The fact that I wasn’t supposed to be there made it that much more interesting and I had a great time exploring Old Havana. I stayed with a Cuban family in their home in what is called a casa particular. Cuba is a beautiful country and I already want to go back. I recommend it to anyone looking for a unique travel experience before its doors are completely opened to American tourism. Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip.
