  • Just returned from Cuba: A Cultural Odyssey

    Hermes, you are in for a special time! Yes, be sure bring cash and any personal care/drug store items you might possibly need on your trip. There is a 10% surcharge on exchanging US dollars, so if you have any Euros, Pounds or Canadian currency left over from previous trips, take that and you'll get a better exchange rate. There isn't that much to spend money on in Cuba, unless you want to buy expensive art, so $300-$500 should be plenty. On this last trip, I found that my Verizon phone worked. And you can buy wifi cards there that will work in the local town squares. It's a happening. If you want to take anything extra along to give to Cubans, reading glasses are always appreciated, as well as toiletry items, soap, shampoo, etc. Also school/art supplies. Katharine

Remember, the markets are all in tourist towns and cities, so ATMs should be plentiful. Just be careful where you withdraw and how you carry cash!

Thanksgiving weekend is considered to be the heaviest travel weekend of the year, but it’s different from most travel. For most people Thanksgiving is a special day once a year for spending time with family or close friends. It’s not necessarily a trip back home in the geographical sense, but it’s a journey back home for the ...

I grew up in the middle of America far from any ocean or mountains, far, I thought, from anything that mattered. It seemed like everything that happened happened somewhere besides the Midwest. I wanted to travel to places where things were happening. In my fantasies I travelled the world, to all the exotic places I had learned of in books or movies....
