Toronto to Bahrain … Mileage Running from a Trini perspective

If you ask most Trinidadians about Bahrain … they’re probably going to tell you that, we beat them in a World Cup decider 1-0 to qualify for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. This is the most famous goal in Trinidad’s football history. That being said … most Trinis will know nothing else of this tiny Arab nation. Until …

I’m finally past the halfway mark … 50 wonders done, 50 to go …

The best part of travelling are the random experiences that happen along the way … that’s a main reason for compiling the experience inventory.

Trinis like salt!! And I’m number 6 in the world … woot!!

In Trinidad, we have a cliche… “Trinis like salt … cause they in eeeeeverything!” … Sometimes I wonder what the hell I’m doing in some places myself. I’ve lived in Montreal for a couple years and I survived the great Montreal Icestorm (which really wasn’t that great … but losing electricity across the city makes you understand how pathetic and …
