I'd hardly ever classify myself as one who would describe persona/things/most places as something "I've loved long before I met *you*", but Cuba is probably one of the rare few.
For as long as I can remember, I've been dreaming and wanting to go to this amazing enigma that so many have heard of, and yet rarely truly encountered with.
Eversince we picked up salsa at 13 fuelled by the discovery of (Dirty Dancing) Havana Nights, it was almost a mini personal note to self that I really want to see Havana, however mythically fuzzily out of reach it felt.
I'm so glad we decided to take that leap of faith + take the planning one step at a time to the unknown.
Blown away by the beauty, the haunting old world charm, the genuine kindness of its people, their resilience + ability to stay positive and warm. A personal fav for someone like me: the music & boy, the literal time machines cars from the 50s, beauts!
It was generally a rather easy destination to get to + get around in. I felt safer there than many other cities in the world. Has its unique nuances, but comes with the turf of being frozen in time - something to appreciate and take in when you have the opportunity to be enhanced with such rare experiences.
Would be most happy to share tips / insights to this place that so little is known about from our short (yet highly eventful!) trip there. If you need help with Travel requirements (none for Malaysians! Don't let anyone else tell ya otherwise), costs, where to eat stay dance in Havana, Currency + where to get em, feel free to get in touch. 😊 I know how many resources I had to call/study/seek before the trip: embassies + faraway relations of friends of friends of friends that I had to reach out to just to be pre-empted.. So am more than happy to help! 💃🏻❤
