An Armchair Traveler is someone who finds out what a place or location is like by watching travel programs on television, looking at internet websites about travel or reading books about travel. Armchair traveling is about letting yourself day dream and imagine what it would feel like to physically be there. It is great for those who can not travel, and for those who want to fantasize about where their next vacation will be.

The OLD CUBAN
From the Travels of Best Selling author Daniel Bellino Zwicke.
” I went to Cuba in September 2005. First stop Havana. I first stayed at The Ambos Mundos, Hemingway’s Hotel. He lived there before he bought his home, The Finca Vega. I flew into Havana from New York, by way of Cancun, Mexico. After my flight on Cuban Air was delayed fro 3 hours (at Cancun), we finally took off. I checked into the Ambos Mundos a little after 12 Midnight. My room was right next to Hemingway’s room, which is a small museum inside the hotel, dedicated Ernest Hemingway (his room).
I bought a a package deal from a Travek Agent in Toronto, which included : Roundtrip Airfare from Cancun to Havana, Cuba, my Cuban Tourist Visa, Cuban Health Insurance, ground trasportation to and from the Havana Airport, to my hotel, and two nights in a Deluxe Hotel of my choice. Naturally I chose Ambos Mundos, Hemingway’s Hotel. Well, I stayed at Ambos Mundos on the first and last night in Havana. In-between, I stated at Casa Gisell B&B in Havana for 5 days, then I went down to Trinadad d’ Cuba for two days, and returned to Ambos Mundos for my last night in Cuba.
While in Havana, I hung out at the Inglatera a lot, eating lunch or dinner, using the Internet, drinking Mojitos, and buying Cuban Cigars (Romeo & Juliettas, Cohiba, and Monte Cristos), at the little cigar shop in the lobby, then smoking the cigars as I listened to live Cuban Music, sipped my Mojito, and puffed on my cigar.
I visited the Partagas Cigar Facotry, down the street from The Inglatera, and took the tour to see how the famous Cuban Cigars are made. They make all the famous brands of Cuban Cigars there. These included Cohiba, Monte Cristo, Partagas, Romeo Julieta, and other cigars. It was quite interesting.
I went to the Paris Cafe a couple nights to listen to some great Cuban bands, and drink Mojitos. The Paris Cafe was just about a block from the Ambos Mundos. I really liked it there. Of course I had to go have cocktails at Hemingways favorite bars, “The Floridita for a Daiquiri ,and the La Bodeguita del Medio for my Mojito,” as Hemingway said.
