The last time we were here, we had a great suite on the executive floor (9th floor), but as a tip for those not staying on a high floor : Do ask for rooms …

    A Trini’s ABCs of Travel

    On all the travel blogs, The Travel ABCs is a sort of game going round the blogosphere, one of those “credential” post that travel bloggers make (like an accent tag on YouTube). I see it as a combined self-examination exercise and travellers’ curriculum vitae. A bit like my credentials for presuming to blog about travel to an unsuspecting public. I’ve …
