(AJC.COM) – Modern technology has made it easier than ever to communicate with loved ones across the globe, but that isn't the case everywhere.

Quiñonez, 27, had a thirst for adventure and decided to quit his job and travel the world, starting in Cuba.

"When I arrived there, with the time difference, the Communist party blocking the internet and the prices of phone calls, it was difficult to communicate with my friends and family," he told The LAD Bible.
So he took to Instagram to document his trip and let his mother know that he was, in fact, fine.
