Halfway to Havana Book


On this day, two years ago, I was in Cuba departing the city of Trinidad bicycling toward the city of Havana. A rather unremarkable day became an unforgetable day. 

Now, there is a book about my journey. 

Halfway to Havana is a memoir of my journey traveling to and bicycling across the island nation of Cuba. It is a raw look at the Cuban geography, culture, history, social system and people.

The plan was to fly into Havana, travel east by train across the island to the coastal town of Baracoa, then travel west by riding a bicycle back to the capital city of Havana. However, I found that things were not always what they seem to be in Cuba and the best laid plans are often for not.

“Island Paradise or Island Prison, I wanted to discover the truth about the island nation for myself. So, I decided to travel to Cuba. That decision almost cost me my life.”
