2018 Trinidad & Tobago Experience: The Beginning

When I was a teenager I was fascinated with the Travel Channel because it allowed me to experience the world from my living room couch.  I knew that one day I would visit these other countries, experience their cultures and explore their worlds.  Out of all the episodes, my very favorite episode highlighted the marvelous Carnival celebration in Trinidad & Tobago. Now, it’s not the typical Carnival we’re used to in U.S. where you see clowns, rides, games, and, cotton candy…no…far from it.  It’s also pronounced differently..google it!

I was glued to the TV and watched in amazement as people danced in the street to the latest Soca music and groove to steel pan drums with the look of pure joy in their faces. It intrigued me and I wanted to experience Trinidad & Tobago for myself!  Watching the men and women dress up in sparkling costumes, which looked  like they were made from the Sun Gods and wearing elaborate feathered headdress opened my eyes to Carnival. I wanted a piece of the action!

Well fast forward 20 years later, I finally get a chance to see Trinidad & Tobago up close and personal. When I met my boyfriend, who happens to be a native to Trinidad, I knew it was destiny that our paths had crossed. The only thing I knew about the island was Carnival, but wanted to see the island in its true essence. Chace was excited to show me where he grew up and wanted to give me an experience of a lifetime.  He helped expose me to the food, the culture, and the people of Trinidad & Tobago. This was my first time leaving the United States and felt good to spread my wings and see the rest of the world!

Chace and I on T&T Spirit headed to Tobago (btw.. I threw up on the way there! Ha!)
