Mexico-ready '09 View For Sale

UPDATE July, 2017 -- This View has now been sold to some lovely RV blogger friends of mine.  Can't wait to follow their exciting travels in the months ahead (and hopefully meet them down the road)!  If you missed out on this View, stay tuned-- my own WinnieView will likely be up for sale within the next couple of months as RVing is becoming more physically challenging for me these days. Contact me at the email address listed on the sidebar if you'd like to be alerted before it gets listed here.

My Mexico traveling buddies, Hans and Ursula, have recently decided to conclude their RVing travel adventures for a more stationary lifestyle in the Lake Chapala region of Mexico.  If you've ever wished to own a meticulously clean V6 Mercedes Sprinter Winnebago View that can handle Mexico's non-ULSD diesel fuel...read on!

Life Turns to a New Direction

This is a very hard post to write.  Three weeks ago, my life changed in an instant.  No real warning, no time to prepare, no time to do anything but focus on the new firehose of reality that was now rapidly propelling me in a totally new direction.

I know lots of travels and photos have transpired between my last blog post (my summer volunteer ranger gig at Bryce Canyon National Park last summer) and now.  I hope to fill those gaps with backdated posts in the coming weeks as I get the time/energy.  

But this post may very well end up being my last, chronologically speaking.

Trinidad, Cienfuegos & Varadero

After a quick overnight stay at Mariel's Casa Particular in Havana, we headed back to the Havana Libre hotel for our 7:00am bus to Trinidad.  It was another Transtur bus, so of course it was 45 minutes late, but at least this time it was not full and I had both seats to myself to stretch out.

The trip to Trinidad took 6 hours, but the bus stopped at 2 tourist rest stops for passengers to use the restrooms, eat lunch, and stretch our legs, so the trip was enjoyable.

Most of the scenery from Havana to Cienfuegos was rural and undeveloped except for various sugar cane fields dotting the highway.  The scenery became more hilly and spectacular between Cienfuegos and Trinidad as we drove through the Parque Natural Topes de Collantes--

Cuba's Viñales Valley

After 5 nights in one UNESCO World Heritage Site, Old Havana, we were now ready to explore some of Cuba's other UNESCO sites-- the tobacco plantations of Viñales Valley, and the historic towns of Trinidad and Cienfuegos.  As these locations are hours away from each other, we decided to take one of Cuba's tourist bus lines to get us there.

The Streets of Havana

We spent a total of 5 days in old Havana.  Most of our time was spent wandering the streets and photographing the people, colorful old cars, and crumbling colonial architecture.
