In this introspective travelogue, author, speaker and adventurer Heidi Siefkas shares her transition out of the corporate world’s Cubicle Land to life on the road in Cuba and beyond. Heidi highlights another side of Cuba as well as perspective gained from years of travel to the once-forbidden island. Along the way, she seizes opportunities for adventure in Kauai, Italy, Peru, New Zealand, Australia, and other far-flung places, but always returning to Cuba for more.

Not unlike her previous books When All Balls Drop and With New Eyes, Heidi tells this story with a good dose of sass and humor in her signature down-to-earth vignettes.

Cubicle to Cuba will teach you about Cuba, but it will also inspire you to think outside the cubicle, travel more, and embark on your own Life 2.0 full of adventure.

Review
Having never read a “Travelogue” before I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this book.  However, Cubicle to Cuba gives a witty insight into the life of a tour guide and of life in Cuba. 
I think a lot of people dream to escape the humdrum of everyday life and be able to follow their dreams but how many of us actually get to do it?  As a “cubicle” worker myself I could certainly relate to the author’s desire to have a better, more exciting life.  And she certainly has some interesting stories to tell!
This book is a bit like a guide book but put together in a way which brings the place to life – a bit of history, a bit of culture, recommended places to dine and visit, hints and tips for tourists – with funny personal anecdotes of her many trips to far flung locations.  Thrown in for good measure are some recipes which I will be sure to try.
At times I did find the book jumped around a bit and I wasn’t sure if it was meant to be a journal or a guide book. On the whole though it was an enjoyable light read that transports the reader away to sunny climates.
