Key Characteristics of Authentic Slavery Heritage Tourism Sites

As an Afro-Caribbean woman I have always felt compelled to learn as much as possible about the slave trade. As a traveler, part of that education comes from visiting slavery heritage tourism sites. But I have always struggled with excursions of this nature. On the one hand, I am enamored by the charm and allure …

Island Girl’s Destination Photos: Tobago

Tobago, in my personal (slightly biased) estimation, is an island paradise. I have the privilege of calling this little rock in the southern Caribbean my home and I enjoy exploring it every chance I get. I swear, on an average day the blues are bluer, the greens are greener, the flowers bloom brighter, the history …

Island Girl’s Travel Guide to Petite Martinique

Disclaimer: Petite Martinique isn’t for everyone. But it just might be for you…That is, if you’re the kind of traveler who appreciates a waaaay off-the-grid experience. One defined by a raw, unassuming landscape and authentic small-island living, which facilitates an almost complete disconnect from the rest of the world. On PM, as the locals fondly refer to …

First Impressions: Petite Martinique

Less than a day in Petite Martinique and already I’m blogging about it. Unusual for me, but there’s absolutely nothing ‘usual’ about Petite Martinique (by my medium-sized-island-girl standards). Plus, the fact is there’s little else to do at 9:05 on a Thursday night. Already, all doors are closed, lights are off and there is nary a …

Grenada: The Great Escape to Sandy Island, Carriacou

Sandals off. Locks loose. Body stretched out on a surprisingly comfortable bed of fallen coconut tree branches…that was my conduct for most of the afternoon I spent on Sandy Island.

For the cost of roundtrip boat passage from the fishing village of Woburn to the island, you could find yourself blissfully undisturbed on this tiny L-shaped strip of beach. That’s a pretty sweet deal in my book. I …
