My Life | My Family Travels

When it comes to traveling I have got that under my belt especially with my dad being in the military. When I was around 9-10 years old my dad had to go back into the military because of 9/11. When he first went back into the military we moved to Chicago for two years. Then we moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba which is my most favorite place that I have lived. After Cuba we moved to South Carolina, then Ohio, and finally to San Diego. I liked living in all of these places but Cuba was the most unique and versatile.

            Living in Cuba there was so much to do whether it be scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, paintballing, sports, and even mini golf. So when I was there and I became bored I was not attempting to do anything fun. While I lived there not only could I do entertaining activities I could talk to and hang out with the locals so I could learn about there cultures. The coolest culture that I learned about was from the Cubans who claimed asylum on the base because they had to escape from the dictatorship of  Fidel Castro. I was also enabled to talk to some Jamaicans that lived on the island.

            While I talked to the Cubans and the Jamaicans I learnt a lot about there cultures but more about the Cubans than the Jamaicans. The most shocking thing that I learned about the Cubans culture is that they can not say anything bad or degrading about Fidel or the Cuban government. Another interesting fact is that Cubans have to escape Cuba if they want to be free and if they are caught then they face serious punishments. An interesting fact that I learned about the Jamaicans is they have a little government with not much power.

            With my dad being in the military I have had the opportunity to live in many different places with different cultures and ethnicities. I hope to continue to travel for most of my life because I like experiencing unique and versatile cultures. I love to travel and if I join the military I would like to be able to travel to bases all around the world.
