Americans can travel to Cuba, you just need to know how. With a little guidance being able to drink mojitos, learn to salsa and explore the streets of Havana is within reach.
There is something to be said for aimlessly roaming the streets of an energetic city, not knowing what you will find, popping into quaint cafes and talking to the locals. Though when there's a limited amount of time, I need a plan — I need an itinerary.
Travel appears on many bucket lists for a variety of reasons. For some it is simply a time to reenergize your batteries or disconnect from the stresses at home. For me, and many others who choose take it one step further and travel deeper, it is because it has the ability to enrich your life in some way, shape or form.
For many, the word “vacation” is synonymous with “relaxation.” And, hey, your time away from the real world should allow you to rest and recharge — but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do things while you’re away.
You see everyone’s pictures on Facebook or Instagram. Like it or not, you are just a little green with envy. Happy couples smiling for their selfies with the Eiffel Tower in the background, or maybe the view of the beach from their hotel room. You want to go, but something keeps holding you back.
