The second best commute to work….

As part of our working lives, we have to get to work in the mornings. Work is just a necessary fact of life, and as much as we complain about the whole thing, it does serve a very useful purpose in our lives. I think it is to give purpose and meaning as well as to give us something to …

Nights and randoms in BVI

  Of course, no visit to the island would be without a visit for some rum shopping. I wonder how long the Pusser’s rum will last in my shelves.

Touching down in Antigua

So while getting heading back to Toronto from my trip in Trinidad, I had the opportunity to stop off in Antigua for two days. Lemme say that Antigua is a tiny little island that is more known to me for the the Antigua Recreation Ground (ARG), that very famous bowler’s graveyard that saw Brian Lara break the highest individual test …

Maracas Bay … yet another post

Yet another post of Maracas Bay in Trinidad… although I didn’t have the camera, so I’m not responsible for the shots, just uploading them.

Making ah fish broff fresh…

One of the best things we have in Trinidad, is the “fish broff” or fish broth. Trinis consider soup to be a main dish, no dish comes after or before, it goes with the whole “one pot” theory. Being served at home is a lot different from being served at a restaurant, in fact I have never had fish broth …

Tobago 2006 – Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool – Day 3

As the third and final day started up, we had decided that at the Hilton (the previous night, where we paid about 700.00$ TT for a pretty crappy dinner, considering the price, although it must be said that we decided to hit the Hilton very very late on Sunday night.), we would rise very early in the morning and start …

Tobago 2006 – Englishman’s Bay – Day 2 Pt 2

It was such a long day that I had to actually break up the blog into two separate parts. After the waterfalls, our guide told us to go on side road to get to the Roxborough-Parlatuvier Road. This road goes through the Tobago Forest Reserve and is definitely a very scenic drive. Tobago’s well preserved forested central mountain range is …

Tobago 2006 Day 1 – Travelogue

Got into Tobago from Trinidad at about 11:20am. Now that isn’t really a bad thing except that our flight was supposed to leave at 8:20 and get there about 18 minutes later. In Trinidad, the one thing you learn very quickly (well Tara learned very quickly) was that in Trinidad, nothing generally leaves on time. The reason for the delay …
