Happy Friday! In less than 12 hours, my little tuchus will be sitting in an airplane heading for Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (with a brief visit to Miami, FL). I am unbelievably excited. More accurately, what I am experiencing is something between complete disbelief and slow realization. Transitions.
Coat of Arms
I had no idea where Trinidad and Tobago was until I started doing some research. Just in case the location is a mystery to you: they are sister islands surrounded by the Caribbean sea, and incredibly close to Venezuela.
What I always seem to experience right before traveling are what I call the Travel Heebie-Jeebies. This pre-departure frenzy is what leads to a room filled with no less than six empty suitcases and a lot of miscellaneous items scattered on the floor. Luckily, I managed to condense the mess into something manageable: two reasonable suitcases!
My hope is that this blog will be a place where I can share with you the beautiful scenery (including not-so-subtle-people-watching), as well as commentary on the amazing culture of Trinidad and Tobago.
Check back soon for an arrival post!
