The gorgeous beaches of Baracoa, on the eastern tip of Cuba, touched my heart and soul. But my mind grappled with a much less beautiful issue.

Havana is a city on the cusp of change – and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Three days in Seoul will provide you with mere impressions of the city: Panoramas of skyscrapers rolling over hills like waves of concrete and steel; flashes of neon light reflecting in rivers and streams; and aromas of Korean BBQ in the air all around you.

Thanks to balmy, sunny weather, lighter crowds at popular attractions and lower rates on accommodation, L.A. makes the perfect winter getaway.
