If you’re up for discovering spots in new surroundings, it can only help to have an experienced traveller at your side. Digging for new locations with a globetrotter like Michi Mackrodt always turns out successfully, even if you’re searching in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba.

In between visits to the white beaches, drinking from fresh coconuts and hanging out with the grimy street butchers, Michi went to undertake some butchering himself.
