Life-long-to-do-list No. 54. Travel to Cuba before Fidel Castro dies.

To quote Nat Geo Adventure 'This is your life, and it's the greatest adventure you're ever going to have. So, let's get lost.' There are a lot of places on my places-to-see-before-I-die list. And Cuba is definitely one of them. What makes it particularly special is that its at a turning point in its history, and may never be the same again. It's been frozen in time and isolated from the rest of the world in many ways. And, before it all changes, I want to see with my own eyes this time capsule of a country. I want to see visit the place where a revolution took place, and see buildings still with bullet holes intact and 1950s cars driving around the beaches like they have for decades. The thing with travel these days is that everything is changing so fast, that even if you have done the impossible and 'seen the world' or visited every country, you'll have to do it all over again because by that time everything will have changed. While The World is on my to-see list, Cuba particularly for too many reasons to count.

What place do you want to see with your own eyes in your lifetime?

'Esta es tu vida y es la mayor aventura que jamás tendrás. así, vamos a perder.'
¿Qué lugar quieres ver con tus propios ojos?
