The beautiful thing about travel writing is it helps you re-live your best memories. The moments un-caught by cameras. The remembering that doesn’t want to remain hidden in travel journals. I made a week-long jaunt to Havana and rural Western Cuba earlier this year and recently The Province published a travel feature I filed after my adventure. Have a read of Welcome to Cubano Country, and view the photos in this gallery. Then forget the tourist beaches of Varadero next time you’re looking to escape. Rural Cuba offers a rugged authenticity, stunning views and new frontiers for travellers.
