November 19, 2016 at 7:20 pm

We’ve been talking about going to Cuba for ages. As this year flew by, we thought we’d missed our window. We found a 5 day trip with Cuba Unbound via Austin Adventures. The trip was entitled “Cars, Cigars and Rum.” It was a Havana experience with beautiful classic cars taking you to see the sites, to learn about the city and it’s people and to…
