So.. I finally got round to writing up a trip report for my jaunt round Cuba in November and thought I'd throw it up here in case anyone was in the process of researching a trip there.
I'm quite a lazy blogger (hence the 4 month delay on the write-up!) so it's only fairly light-weight coverage but there's lots of shiny photos :D

Anyway, here's the link to the blog post
Any feedback, discussion will happily be entered into!

Since writing it, I've realised there is quite a lot of stuff I've left out that could be useful, especially around the logistics of travelling as a solo female.
On that regard, the short of it is; you'll get a lot of attention; cat calls and leers and (for some very annoying reason) hissing. But at the same time, that really is as far as goes. I never had any inappropriate comments made directly to my face and I never felt even slightly threatened; even walking round Havana alone at night did not feel dangerous, partly because the streets were so busy and partly because, unlike so many other countries, there were as many local women out and about as men.
Anyway, if anyone has any questions, ask away or feel free to PM me.
