January 28, 2023: Off to Cuba
Ruth: On Monday we head to Cuba for 5 weeks of cycling. Cuba is longer than Vancouver Island at 1250 kms and covers 109,884 km2 . In five weeks we will concentrate on the central region of the country. Travelling these days carries no guarantees. We are hopeful that our bikes and luggage will arrive with us after our three flights. If they don’t : Gord had the brilliant suggestion that we pack our swimsuits, snorkels and flippers in our carry on just in case. We could be happy for days just looking at beautiful fish. Our first stop is at Carbonera just 6 kms from the Varadero airport. It’s a small village with an excellent snorkeling beach.
