About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 125 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

 Feb. 5-12th

After Costa Rica, I decided to spend a week in Havana for my 3rd visit to Cuba. It was too long. 😆 

CUBA, Varadero

 January 13-16th, 2019

Varadero was the "vacation" part of my trip as there are beautiful beaches and inexpensive ALL INCLUSIVE RESORTS. There was only a 2-6 am time frame when the bar was closed and Russian tourists seemed to take advantage of that. My private room was about $40 a night and included all u can eat buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner + free drinks. Varadero was only 1.5 hours from Havana by bus which was convenient. 

CUBA, Trinidad

January 10-13th, 2009

Caught bus to Trinidad. Only 1.5 -2 hours and beautiful countryside. Trinidad is much smaller than Cienfueos, only about 25,000 people, and very old with cobblestone streets.


CUBA , Cienfuegos

January 7th -10th, 2019

Caught 8:40 am bus to Cienfuegos. Unfortunately had to wait on 5 other TRAVELERS for 40 minutes. Not sure why. We arrived there about 130 pm an I was fortunate that my Casa was nearby and I found it with a little help. It is largest city in Cuba outside of Havana, about 250,000 people.

January 8th. Walked to Punta Gorda, most affluent neighborhood in Cienfuegos,  which took about 1 hour roundtrip.

CUBA , Havana

January 5-7th, 2019
