Recently I was blessed to travel to neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago but it was my visit to the tiny isle of Tobago, that cemented the vibe of this short trip.
I had no major expectations but to allow my self to experience this new place. I needed to get out of Barbados, I needed to be in a new environment to escape the normalcy and submerge myself in a different culture and oh that I did! Thanks to the best hostess and best friend, Kristen, along with my new Lucian friend-Mernette; during my very short stay I got to experience so much with my only regret being the camera I left back in Barbados. The one day spent in Tobago was so fulfilling and action packed, it left me craving more of Trinidad’s best kept secret.
This day started literally before the break of dawn, we ladies got ready and made our way to the ferry dock to make the three hour journey to the island. The ride was smooth for most but for others (1 individual in particular) was quite upsetting and she chose to express this by expelling all the morning’s grub :D.
We went from Ferry to a glass bottom boat and set out unto the cool blue waters of Store Bay. Our tour guides were only fun and amazing, and the scenery breath taking and calming, I could’ve stayed out there forever!
Daring to try something new, wild deer and busupshot was lunch and my new Tabogian friend took us up to Fort King George to enjoy our meal compliments the wild wild west, seem only fitting to have it outdoors :). On top of this mountain much laughter was shared and conversation had, from carnival to similar Trini-Bajan sayings. The evening couldn’t have ended on a better note, thanks Stephan!
Please take me back to Tobago!!
