First time to Cuba

We’re not the only ones visiting Cuba this year! This will be the first time to Cuba for David & I and seems like history is being made in that small tropical country South of the United States. In case you didn’t recognize it, from The Int’l Spectator the  IMAGE is Air Force One descending into Cuba.

United States President Obama is in Cuba for a historic three-day visit  and talks with its communist leader. He is the first sitting US president to visit since the 1959 revolution, which was the start of  decades of hostility between the two countries. President Obama will meet President Raul Castro, but not retired revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, and the pair will discuss trade and political reform. Obama first announced moves to normalize ties between the two countries in December 2014 and after much secret talks and meetings, the US reopened its embassy in Havana in August 2015, a month after Cuba reopened its embassy in Washington.

This is just the beginning of travel between the US and Cuba.

While we won’t get to Havana this time, I’m getting excited! Just 22 more days until we fly!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
