“For me the best kind of adventure holiday is when you let yourself fall back on your own resources. When I visited Cuba I had only just landed and was immediately offered a room in someone’s villa and people were incredibly kind. One family even took me to a baseball game. Old Havana is incredible, of course, but you can travel everywhere by bus and one time I hired a horse and a guide and trekked around the interior. But perhaps my most memorable experience was finding myself at a dance party in Santiago de Cuba surrounded by about 2,000 kids. Quite intimidating actually. But I hired two of the kids to look after me just in case and all was well.”
