Book Review: Cubicle to Cuba: Desk Job to Dream Job

Cubicle to Cuba: Desk Job to Dream Job
By Heidi Siefkas
Genre: Travel

In Heidi Siefkas’ third book, she shares a humorous collection of stories about her transition from the corporate world and cubicle land to traveling to Cuba while creating her dream job, a hybrid career writing and traveling. Her adventures not only include over one hundred days in Cuba, but also hiking in Peru, bungee jumping in New Zealand, living in Hawaii, and more.
In her signature down-to-earth vignettes and sassy humor, Heidi relays her many tales of the characters she has met, yummy recipes, and also the inevitable travel hiccups along the way. With this book, Heidi puts her favorite quote to good use, “Every occasion in life can be categorized as either a good time or a good story.”

My Review

If you need some inspiration on how to place nonsense to the side and really live life to the fullest, then pick up a Heidi Siefkas book. This girl is doing it right. Cubicle to Cuba is Heidi's story about leaving her corporate job in Florida to become a tour manager in Cuba. This book is fun! I learned a ridiculous amount about Cuban culture, currency, food, and lifestyles. Heidi doesn't hold back. She tells you the good, the bad, and the ugly. I admire her drive to stay in adventure mode and keep taking risks. 5 stars!
