Houston Post Oak – Wednesday, September 30 at 7 pm

Earlier this year, travel restrictions to Cuba were eased. While it’s still not possible to visit the island solely for the beaches, the food, the music and the cars, with planning, you’ll be able to experience them first-hand. Hostelling International’s Al Martinez will tell you how to plan your adventure to this special place in his talk Cuba: The Road Less Traveled at our Southlake and Houston Post Oak stores. He’ll be at our Southlake store on Tuesday, September 22nd at 6:30 pm and at the Houston Post Oak store on Wednesday, September 30th at 7 pm.

Al Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba. In 1962, his parents sent him to live in the US and arrived themselves, three years later. Al has lived in a handful of US cities as well as Puerto Rico before becoming a Texas resident of 36 years. He received a Bachelors degree in Business Administration from the University of Miami and a Bachelor in Arts in Photojournalism from the University of Texas in Arlington. Now retired, Al has traveled for business or pleasure to 55 nations, territories, and dependencies as well as 38 US states and 5 Canadian provinces. He first returned to Cuba to visit family in 2002 after a 40 year absence and has since visited again in 2008 and 2012. He is excited to share insights and travel tips through his presentation Cuba: The Road Less Traveled.
