Yes, ok, we confess, we’re foodies. Always trying to find the local grub that we like best. It’s not always easy, take Cuba for instance. Most visitors to the island carry memories of tasteless meals badly prepared. Which probably is due to the shortage of food the Cubans have had to endure during hard times.
But, and this is our point, even in Cuba we found delicious and excellently prepared food. And that goes for Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Ecuador and all other places we have visited as well. Here we list some of them.
Read about walks and hikes we have endured on some of our travels, for instance in Cuba’s Sierra Maestra, the wild mountain range at the southern tip of the island where Fidel Castro’s rebels lay hidden for years.
Sometimes we surprise ourselves by this reflection: Why do we so often visit islands? There’s been quite a number of them, from big ones like Sri Lanka and Cuba to smaller ones like Zanzibar and Pemba. Ant tiny islands like our absolute favourite Angel Island. So let’s answer the question by describing what we’ve seen. Islands are exotic and special, each one with its own atmosphere.
