This afternoon I’ll be hopping a short 25 minute flight to the sister isle. Yay! *several emoji dancing ladies*
I like to drop just a touch of Caribbean-ness once in a while because well I love the Caribbean and because I know so many just don’t know about where I’m from. I only hope it doesn’t bore you. My country has two islands, the Caribbean business capital, oil producing Trinidad, which is where I live and the touristy, beautiful beach having, relaxing Tobago. Fun fact for those who read lots of classic books: Tobago = The island that the book Robinson Crusoe was based on.
You can ask Emily or anyone who has stopped by the two islands and they will tell you that although its technically one country (Trinidad & Tobago), the two islands are completely different. The feel is just different. One is fast paced and the other is very … relaxing with beautiful beaches and almost stereotypical Caribbean like (and I don’t mean stereotypical as in sitting down sipping on coconuts on a beach all day erryday to the backdrop of steelpan music. All commercials and TV shows that depict such asinine stereotypes are just downright insulting). Even the driving is different on the two islands (never met a visitor who hasn’t commented on how quickly and wildly we drive here).
I head over to Tobago to go to court maybe once a month or once every two months and I hop over with friends every now and again as well. You wont find me complaining about that. Tobago is a tourist isle and hotels just aint cheap so whenever work is willing to pay for it … ummm hells yeah Ill go! I always take the plane whenever I go for work, but there is a ferry that takes about 3-4 hours and the upside to the ferry is that you can take pay to take your car from island to island. I take the ferry if its a big group of friends going to hang out for a weekend or something and we would need our cars to get around easier.
Anyhoosle, this is a short post … I cant wait to do some prep work for work tomorrow and blog my Friday Faves poolside sipping on whatever I feel to be sipping tonight … and listening to some good music.
Present me is jealous of future me’s poolside shenanigans … Oh and I will be going back next week with my mama for a little R&R … but work aint payin’.
