It always brightens my day to see an email in my inbox announcing a newly published feature article with my byline or in which I’ve been quoted.

So today it was a joy to find that this morning the New York Times published a story on Cuba travel in which I am quoted.

NYTimes New York Times Cuba travel experts Christopher BakerWriter Elaine Gusac does a tremendous job outlining the U.S. regulations regarding travel to Cuba, covering issues of concern from every angle.

Commercial flights from the U.S. to Cuba… What qualifies as a “people-to-people” trip… The nature of Fathom cruise line’s Cuba programs… How to obtain a tourism visa… Car rental tips… It’s all covered.

Plus Elaine, I’m glad to note, referenced my Moon Cuba travel guidebook and the escorted group motorcycle tours in Cuba that I lead.
