select from my journeys on this continent

 

Welcome to my travels in the Americas. I have made four separate journeys to this continent, my first experience of which was, probably like many, a city break to New York, returning to the United States a few years later with a mammoth rail journey along the eastern seaboard of Canada. The undisputed highlight of my travels on this continent is Cuba. I am relieved to have seen Cuba before its normalising of relations with the US; frozen in time since the 1950s missile crisis, it will inevitably change forever. Our trip to Cuba was indeed timely.
