Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

For both of us, Cuba has always been high on the list of places we have wanted to go. When we got the chance to travel to the Caribbean for work, we knew that we just had to try and spend some time in Cuba while we were there. Apologies in advance if this becomes somewhat of an essay, but there is just far too much to say about this fascinating place… Most people seem to think of Che Guevara, Mojitos, old cars and the Buena Vista Social Club when Cuba is mentioned – and all this is totally spot on so we won’t need to go into that side of things here. Cuba is currently in a very interesting place – somewhere between old fashioned socialism/still heavily embargoed by the US and opening up to the world now that Fidel Castro has passed away. We knew we didn’t want to stay in a government run hotels (which they all are, and was where most Americans and other rich Europeans who relished in the power of their currencies stayed), the only time we dared to venture into them was to use their internet – wifi and even mobile phones are VERY new developments in Cuba. Since Raul Castro took over, and Cubans have gradually been allowed to explore private enterprise, Casa Particulares have sprung up all over the place – these are rooms in local Cuban’s houses that they rent out to tourists as way of making some money, and provide an incredible opportunity for tourists to see how real Cubans live. Our first Casa Particulare was in the heart of the less touristy part of old Havana with an amazing family (and kitty). Most people here are poor, very poor –  in a kind of way you only can be by decades of hardship. They have very little and live in very small homes yet have the biggest and most generous hearts. Private lives are lived out on the street, and the sense of community here is unlike anywhere we have ever been. People, live, eat, dance and sing on the street and everywhere is full of the most electric creative energy. There is art everywhere and music emanating from houses around every corner. People salsa in the street, alongside those selling bread and fixing their cars. This is a collection of some snapshots from our wanderings around the streets.

  • Post ceremony hangouts.
  • From that insane backlight, you would never guess it bucketed down until 5 minutes before Kerry and Shane’s ceremony.
  • Kerry and Shane. Just a classic portrait. What you can’t see are the swarms of ants crawling up their feet and the tons of flies buzzing around their heads. Unexpected stories are the most fun, and the ones you always remember.
  • Some just married goodness 🔥
  • This love is 🔥
  • On Tuesday we got to witness Elaine and George say their “hell yeahs” to each other in the most magical stone cathedral in the Highlands outside of Sydney.
  • After 3 weeks of pretty much being camera free, we decided to get our eye back into it so we set ourselves a little challenge : weird portraits of each other shot only with our iPhones, in hard light with the crowds at the Sydney opera house and edited only with our phones. And it was so damn fun!
  • Have these two faces: A - just woken from a nap. B - just smoked a fatty. C - just had a massage on the beach. This is probably the quietest we’ve  been on IG since we joined it many moons ago. I fluctuate between feeling like our business is going to fall apart without giving it my constant attention, and relishing in being disconnected for a bit... All I know is we needed the rest 🙌🏽
  • When that first kiss literally sweeps you off your feet 💜
  • About 5 minutes into Carli and Karel’s ceremony it started raining pretty hard, but it cleared up just in time for the official being married bits 🙌🏽
  • Rosie and Deane, being all sexy and in love. Also, I am still beyond in love with her @sadiebosworthatelier dress 😱
  • Carli and Karel and some cool ass glass building lines ☺️

  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
  • If you really want to blow your mind in Amsterdam, try walking round an art gallery after visiting a “coffeeshop”. 🤯
  • Yesterday it was sunny, but the overcast sky and light drizzle suit this place way more. #wechooseadventure_scotland #wechooseadventure
  • Exploring Edinburgh at night. In this place, if it’s not raining, it’s about to rain. #wechooseadventure #wechooseadventure_scotland
  • Made a special mission to see these guys in Glasgow last night. Absolutely epic! @coheed
