Adventures in life come in many forms. They can be joyful, like discovering the perfect vista or the best mojito or painful, like embracing your own fragility and learning to appreciate what is possible. Cubicle to Cuba has a simple, but powerful, message: look forward, stay positive, be present, and look up. This wonderful collection of vignettes tells Heidi's story as she transitions from a comfortable, "safe," desk job - the one that reliably pays the bills - to something riskier but ultimately more soul satisfying: traveling, writing and living a happy life. If you haven't been to Cuba and are thinking of going, this book will give you (with great humor) a real view of our island neighbor. You'll know what to expect. Pack your patience. Move to island time. Cuba is an amazing place. Or maybe you'd like to know what tour guiding is like - the good and the bad. I have the greatest admiration for tour guides who manage to keep so much together. That's here too. Mostly, I found this book an inspiring reminder that "yes" is a powerful word. Here's to adventure!
