Malecon, Havana, Cuba

Monday Morning Blues

This week’s Monday morning blues comes from my 2017 trip to Cuba. The waterfront stretch of Caribbean in Havana is known as the Malecon. The 8km long road is a perfect location for a drive in a classic American car, to Cuba what the gondola is to Venice (about $70 and very touristy!). Join us […]

In fact it is a perfect destination […]

Six years and one day ago I celebrated my 50th birthday in Iceland. Fabulous memories all round to banish those Monday Morning Blues. In the centre of Reykjavik stands a lake that is frozen in winter, save for a small pocket that remains unfrozen and is haven for flocks of geese and other waterfowl. Groups […]
