Caribbean Lifestyle – Cast Those Nets

Caribbean Lifestyle - Cast Those Nets

Lifestyle in the Caribbean can be many things. But, one things for sure, is people work hard. Not saying, they work any harder than you and me for anything, but, they work. Most do more by 6AM than I know I do.

In many islands, you’ll be likely to see fishermen working their nets preparing to set sail in these brightly colored fishing boats.

Weekend Getaway – The Caribbean On A Budget

Camera 360

I’ve had this post set in draft mode for the week, Thursday Apr. 17, I received a Tweet from @lavidashannon inviting me to join the weekly chat, and this weeks topic was The Caribbean on a Budget.  How perfect…a group of professionals as well as avid Caribbean goers all speaking about this great topic, I am sure to learn more and lots of new stuff.

How To Afford The Caribbean on A Budget: –

  • You begin by setting yourself a realistic budget. (let’s keep those caviar dreams and wishes for another time)
  • Be flexible with your dates. (A few days before or after your date may yield you a lower cost on air/hotel)
  • Research multiple destinations. (It’s always good to have options, but if you have your heart set on just one destination, get to researching)
  • Tours, Cuisine, Special Services(Spa etc.), and Shopping.  This will be a great place to spend a little – not saying you have to blow your entire budget, but it will be nice for you to take in a great island tour and truly get a feel and some education about the destination.
  • Accommodations. Research multiple options. If you’re travelling alone, you may want to look into a beautiful B&B, Guesthouse and or an apartment. etc.  If you’re in a group – look towards renting a house and or villa.  This is a great way to cut down on the cost.
  • Travel during the shoulder season/before the high season, and or low season.
  • Make your decision. Go and have fun!

Trinidad and Tobago – the Pearl of the Caribbean

Edey:

A lovely piece about my home.

Originally posted on The World Traveling Guide:

The Trinidad and Tobago is also known as the home of carnival, calypso, limbo dancing and Angostura Bitters, Trinidad and Tobago’s worldly contributions have always been an assault on the senses. From Hindu to Hispanic and from Muslim to Christian, this diverse little nation mixes a raw cosmopolitan vibe with a wondrous line-up of festivals and punches way above its weight in the scenery stakes too.

Gluing all this together are the Trinidadians themselves. They’re a relaxed, ingratiating people specialising in liming (talk for talking’s sake) and often masters in the other national pastimes of football, cricket, dancing and partying hard.

Port of Spain, surrounded by verdant rolling hills, is the main city on oil-rich Trinidad. Bazaars throng beneath modern skyscrapers and mosques rub shoulders with cathedrals, all of which bounce to the beat of Carnival, arguably the planet’s greatest parties. Beyond the capital beckon volcanoes, a self-replenishing asphalt lake and…
