Cienfuegos, Cuba

6 hours via bus, I ended up at Cienfuegos. Cienfuegos was the only city colonized by the French and their influence can be seen in the architecture. Relatively walkable and small city, it was entirely different coming from Havana.  Cienfuegos was beautiful and relaxing. Like super relaxing and super chill. The hustle and bustle of … Continue reading Cienfuegos, Cuba

Havana, Cuba

Classic cars! Mojitos! Ernest Hemmingway! Daiquiris! Havana Nights! Salsa! Live Music!  Havana is everything I imagined it to be. As soon as I stepped out of the airport, it felt something like a Miami Vice movie. After the excitement of stepping into the 1950s, Havana is like every other city.  Every city there is the … Continue reading Havana, Cuba

The AMAZING Race to Boracay

If I was part of "The Amazing Race" cast and if was anything like the journey getting Boracay that I had, I am good. I don’t need that in my life.  It could be because I didn't take a “real” rest breaks coming from the United States to Southeast Asia. It could be the  20 … Continue reading The AMAZING Race to Boracay

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Not an actual physical fight but a boodle fight.

Smells like…

The smell hit me like a Pepe Le Pew. I was confused because I know of this smell but being that is a tourist island, I didn't think this fruit would exist. Following my nose, I ended up at a fruit stand where behold.... Durian! This large, husky, spiky yellowish brown in color is known … Continue reading Smells like…
