My husband and I just got back from a cruise out of Miami to Havana, Cuba and it was truly the trip of a lifetime.

Because of some mechanical issues with the ship causing us to leave port late, our stop in the Bahamas was cancelled, giving us three days in Havana and we couldn't have been happier!

From mixing with the locals, going to the world famous Tropicana and being blessed to find the most incredible driver and tour guide, we got to see more of Havana that we ever dreamed of! We even were invited to dinner at our driver's home where his wife made us an authentic Cuban meal.

Honestly, we saw and experienced more than I can write in this blog, but I will tell you, if you get the chance to travel to Cuba, go! Havana is like a city lost in time! I shudder to think of it ever becoming commercialized. However, I will say, after visiting a Socialist country, I have never been more thankful for the fortune of being a citizen of the United States of America. We are TRULY BLESSED!
