Trinidad

We left Vinales before the sun rose, and spent the best part of the 8 hour bus journey in and out of sleep, reading, and chatting. We finally arrived in Trinidad late afternoon, we quickly found our AirBnB and dropped our bags, before heading out to explore the colourful streets of Trinidad.  Trinidad is a … Continue reading Trinidad

Vinales

We arrived in Vinales by bus, a long one. Immediately after stepping off the bus we were swamped by dozens of people offering to take us to their lodgings or offer us their services as a taxi driver, thankfully we required neither as we had a home-stay booked within walking distance of the town centre … Continue reading Vinales

Harri and I flew into Havana via Madrid. We landed just after 2000 local time and then had to spend the next hour trying to get through immigration, probably the slowest passport control either of us has ever experienced.

Kotor

We arrived late in Kotor Bay after the bus journey from Albania took a couple of hours longer than expected because of the border. We woke up and wandered through the cobbled streets of Kotor Old Town which is full of little streets which connect big open squares, with restaurants and cafes. After breakfast in … Continue reading Kotor

Albanian visit

Departing Heathrow on Friday evening we flew to Belgrade with Air Serbia, landing just before midnight. With over six hours to wait we wandered around departures until we stumbled upon some comfy, sofa-like chairs. We push a few of them together to make a bed, set an alarm and went to sleep. Harri was out … Continue reading Albanian visit
