Heading to Cuba!
Michael and I head to Cuba for three weeks tomorrow morning! We are so excited about exploring that amazing island - and we're going to do it by bus! We've got 5 Airbnbs lined up in different cities and they all look very interesting. Our first stay will be with a Sylvio & Julia, Airbnb hosts from Havana we met at the Airbnb Open in Paris last November. Their home looks beautiful - and as with all the others, we will eat our meals there with other guests. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/5704246
We are both looking forward to a lull in internet connection and cellphone coverage. We have plenty of reading and writing to do - but we also plan on slipping into the past and enjoying some "island time".
Sylvio & Julia spoke on the Keynote stage ahead of us, right after Airbnb announced their successful launch in Cuba. Currently there are over 3,000 listings there! Here's a great article from Fast Company that summarizes how it happened way better than I could!
I had so much to say about Mexico that I am still working on that blog! Should be out as soon as I have a good internet connection! We look forward to sharing that experience and our Cuban adventures after we get back on the 26th of February.
