As I plan for my next adventure, it is probably good to reflect on my 2014 trips. It was the first time in a long while that I traveled with anyone and this time both of my trips were with someone.
The first was a cruise around the British Isles with my mother — and her first time to Europe. I wanted everything to be perfect and I think we both will agree that it was an amazing trip. While we saw some incredible sights, the best part was traveling with her.
The next trip was completely planned for me by my friend Marshall. I pretty much left it all to him and it was amazing. I love Canada more and more and the Maritimes are beautiful beyond belief. I still haven’t seen any whales, but I saw a sunset on the beach with a fox, a circle of seals and even got photo-bombed by a seal! The food, music and people were wonderful. Now, I really need to see more of this great country.
I also took part in the A to Z blog challenge. So, while I am planning for my next great adventure, I’m also mapping out my stories that will start up for the month of April. Of course it will be about travel, but the overall theme will have to wait a few more weeks. Why? Well, I’m deep into finalizing my plans to go to Cuba!
Of course, unlike most of my friends who head to an all-inclusive beach resort, I have to be different. My first couple of days, I will be on my own in Havana. Then, I’m going on the Cuba Cruise which sails around the island with stops at Holguin, Santiago de Cuba, Montego Bay (Jamaica), Cienfeugos, Punto Francis on the Isle of Youth, the back to Havana. Since I have a lot of freedom to see different things, it means that I’m doing a lot of planning.
So, look for more posts on my planning and experiences in Cuba and in April get ready for this year’s A to Z challenge.
