Cuba #1 – Black&Whites from Havanna

TRAVEL

This summer my boyfriend and me travelled to Cuba for a month. I’ve been wanting to go for ages so I am finally able to cross it off my list now – I’m getting closer and closer to my benchmark of visiting 50 countries before I turn 21 in March.

I had the most amazing time: Cuba is a beautiful country with breathtaking landscapes, colourful towns, horrible food, an abundance of paradise beaches, friendly and unfriendly locals, endless palm tree forests, cheap rum, a dysfunctional state, an appalling road network, crazy sunsets and a capital full of magic. And on top of that, the two of us didn’t get sick of each other (much to our families’ surprise). Like always when I’m travelling far away for a longer time, I kept a meticulous travel diary with entry tickets, post cards and detailed descriptions of the most memorable moments.

This means I’ll spare you with details since I’ve got it all in beautiful handwriting in a beautiful notebook. I took about 2700 photos of which I’ll select a few and put them on here. Since there’s so many pictures I love, I will try to put them in little categories or themes to keep it more interesting.

Starting with a black and white series from Havanna.

Havanna is a crazy city and its atmosphere is difficult to put in words. It’s loud and messy, smelly and colourful and it can be really annoying at times. I only started experimenting with BnW at the end of our journey but I loved how it puts Havanna in a different perspective. Certain shots could’ve literally been taken decades ago.
