Black Gold, Wifi and Cocaine

Wow I slept well!We were up and out the door of the Casa de particular by 7:00am. We’d spotted a great little café last night. The doors of the café were open on both sides. Inside it looked spartan and derelict in that special Cuban kind of way. Sat at the worn, once red, curved café bar we ordered two coffee’s. Yep, “dos café’s por favour”. That’s all we said,…

Sliding into Camaguey

Sometimes even the smallest gestures of kindness are the ones that are important! That was the thought that ran through my head as I pulled on my dry riding gear, that had been taken and hung up last night by our host’s. Up on the flat roof I scanned the skyline for rain clouds and breathed in a new day. Past the metal security roof gate, the family sipped on…

Night-Time Russian Roulette

What a sodding long, weird, soaked to the skin day.We’d left Vinlaes at a reasonably early hour this morning and for an hour cruised the twisty mountain roads before joining the main National highway. We’d wrestled over which roads to take in order to take us south west, but in the end conceded that with only a week left on Cuba, we needed to use the main road to get…

Vida Vinales

Sometimes it’s just great to pull off the panniers and bags and go for a ride.I’d left Lisa sleeping this morning, grabbed my X-T2 and headed up into the hills over looking Vinales Valley with it’s spectacular landscape dotted by dome limestone outcrops (mogotes). The light spit of rain lasted for just seconds but added a glint to the jungle-covered hills surrounding the town. Before sunrise I’d found a spot,…

Another Side Of Cuba

The bags and panniers slammed into my thighs and crashed into the walls as I bumped and wobbled my down the narrow stairway to the front door of the hostel. I’d already collected the bikes from the car park 6 blocks away and navigated my back without hassle, to park them up outside. It was 8am and loading the bikes was already drawing a crowd of excited but polite onlookers,…

Havana Rhythm

The last few days have been a blur of photography, delicious tiny cups of sweet dark coffee, toe-tapping Cuban music and great food.We’ve been up early each day, with the camera lenses clicking from the moment we step outside onto the streets. I love that fact that Lisa’s snap happy again. Lisa’s taken more photos and had more fun with her Fuji X-T2, than she’s taken and had in years.…

Loving Havana

Some places have such an air of legend about them, so much so, that when you finally arrive, your entire experience feels surreal. Havana is one of those places.It’s not often that I get excited about getting up before sunrise but, hey, this is Havana baby, and the idea of walking the historic back streets of old Havana was an exciting prospect for a photographer.Both Lisa and I were up…

Angels In Havana

After a great stay at Papo’s House, where we had many chats with the neighbors before we finally left, we headed out after a great breakfast. Wow, they really provide a selection for breakfast ; eggs, bread, juice, coffee, fresh fruit, toast and jam! We’d enjoyed the shower and feeling clean, a welcome break from the sticky salt air during our time on the boat, but this wasn’t to last…

Cuban Introductions

The sun was already roasting as we made the eighth run back to the ship to collect bags and gear, which we then strapped to the bikes.As I strapped the last bag down, we waived our goodbyes to Egle and Paul as they headed out of the port and swung a left to start their Cuban adventure.With the last clasp of her boot firmly shut, Lisa threw her leg over…

Hello Cuba

Hello Cuba!On the long smooth wooden table on the upper deck, breakfast had already been laid out in spectacular fashion, as I curled my leg over the bench and found a space next to Lisa.I scanned the table for an empty coffee cup amongst the bowls of scrambled eggs, plates of cold meats and cheeses and two huge bowls of fresh chopped fruits that lay scattered across the table.A quick…
