- V!VA Travel Guides
I am an avid traveler am interested in much more than typical resort stays. I want to talk to the locals, eat the local food, and go out where the locals go. I don't want to take shortcuts while traveling; why take an hour plane ride in Cuba when all the Cubans hitchhike or go by camion, even if it takes all day? I believe it is often the hardest experiences in other cultures that are the most rewarding.

Forget your expectations of a place and let it surprise you. The best travel experiences are spontaneous.
