The Winter Getaway: Cuba

Immediately after New Year's Day I start searching for the first hints of spring. Warm, sunny days are still a long way off and patience is not my strong suit. So, to ward off the winter doldrums, I try to plan a trip in February to keep my spirits up. This year’s adventure falls over Presidents' Day Weekend: a five-day trip to Cuba!

A few months ago, after much research about legal ways to visit Cuba, I contacted a licensed travel agency and got the ball rolling. The timing couldn’t have been better. Just recently the US government began to ease restrictions on travel to Cuba and Americans, it seems, will have fewer difficulties visiting in the future. Over time Cubans will most certainly benefit from the eased restrictions and additional foreign investment. On the other hand, I imagine the vintage 1950s cars and distressed architecture will quietly disappear. I can’t get there fast enough.

At Adea we love traveling and exploring, anywhere, for any reason. We’ve blogged about getaways before in this post and it’s no secret that our bodywear is perfect for traveling. While we LOVE to travel, packing is a different story. Cuba poses a particular packing challenge because I don’t know anyone who has been there. Well, besides Beyonce and Jay-Z, but I don't exactly have her wardrobe or her entourage to carry it. I’m a little unsure of what to pack.

 

This weekend I'll use one of these packing lists to finalize my travel outfits and I'll post the results next week. Has anyone been to Cuba? Can you weigh in on what I should pack?
