Island Hopping: Dominica

Of all the islands in the Caribbean that I’ve been to, I’d have to say that Dominica (pronounced: dom-a-nee-ka) was my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, because it was still beautiful, just in a different way. The island itself is considered the, "Nature Isle of the Caribbean," because of its unspoiled nature and I imagine would be a hikers paradise. It's the youngest of all the Caribbean islands and is still being formed by geothermal-volcanic activity....more

Cruising for the first time?

Drop your bags, roam around the ship, eat whatever you wish whenever you want, dance all night, sail into a new port each day, sip wine on your balcony, see Broadway shows, comedy shows, shop or just sit by a pool and do nothing.

Caribbean Shrimp & Scallops with Yellow and Red Pepper Lime Salsa

For some reason I’ve been feeling like it should be vacation time; maybe it’s the warm weather?  Unfortunately the reality is this is not, nor will it be anytime soon, the moment for a vacation!  I had picked up some lovely cherry tomatoes, red and green peppers, limes and cucumbers at the farmers market that were sitting in my veggie basket waiting…suddenly I thought; what about salsa!  A Caribbean inspired salsa!  At least we could eat like we were on vacation……. So I popped up to the market and picked up a few fresh shrimp, scallops and fresh white cor...more

Unwanted Furry and Fluffy Pregnancies

My BFF is part of a great initiative in Tobago, which is aimed at reducing the stray animal population in the sister isle of Tobago, and promote animal welfare on the island. It is always such a big thing for me more as a Trini, and not so much as a huge, gooey dog lover myself (I cannot see a dog and pass it straight), to travel and see animals treated well - I mean beyond the normal boundaries of animal wellness. lol. I love my cousin's neighbour's dog, a West Highland White Terrier named Womble, who is such a little star and is so loved and so spoilt by his owners. My own mongrels get the sort of love and care that Trinidad terriers aka pot hounds aka mongrels rarely get here because of their inferior status in the Trini dog world....more
