Kylie Minogue returns home from her shift as working for a tour operator. She drinks some water after talking about the art of Havana all day. Her phone beeps and she responds to her boyfriend’s text and meets him at a restaurant for dinner. She tells him about her day and meets the eye of the guitarist. She dumps her boyfriend and starts to date the guitarist. However, she and the server strike up a conversation at the beach and she leaves the guitarist. In Cuba, there is no need for her to settle down.

Soon, her work visa will be up and she’ll have to return back to the United Kingdom. The year off from her life has been great. She has gone out with some handsome men and had fun. She learned a new language and volunteered in Haiti. On a vacation, she and some of her European friends met up in the Bahamas and sailed on a cruise. Seeing her friends reminded her of much she missed home. When she came back on vacation, her current boyfriend asked her about her plans for next month. His cousin was getting married. She said she would go. However, during her breaks, she checks the prices of flights back home. Once the price becomes acceptable, she’s clicking the purchase button and calling her family back home to let them know of her arrival.

The divorce had been hard on her. It been her decision to leave, though. Her husband offered to come with her wherever she wanted to go. But she told him he couldn’t. It was something she had to do her own. For most of her life, she had been married or in a serious relationship. A man has always taken care of her. In Cuba, though, she dated but didn’t stay long. She wanted to be her own person.
