Hanging with the locals in Cuba

When visiting other countries, I prefer to see the culture and hang out with the locals. They often know the best places to eat, things to do and it allows you to learn more about the place you are visiting from there perspective. I planned tours and activities but the greatest time spent in Cuba was spending time with Cubans.

Persistent in Vinales, Cuba

Traveling teaches you many lessons and can be applied to everyday life. The lesson I learned from Vinales is to be persistent about things that you want. Often times we get discouraged because the first several times we are knocked down by various life circumstances or people. Yet I think about a boxer who continues to stand up until the fight is finished. Remember delay does not mean denial.
