Aquafari Underwater Tour

Aquafari Underwater Tour

I found the Aquafari Underwater Tour in a “things to do in Curaçao” search so for my last day, I decided to tackle another item on my 30 Before 30 list and use a submersible scooter for a snorkel/scuba-like experience. Since I find myself to be boring safe most times, I thought something different would be fun. The Aquafari is located on Pirate Bay; about 30 minutes from the Royal...

5 Reasons I Need Another Weekend in Tobago

I took a few days off and spent my Memorial Day weekend with some family in the beautiful island of Tobago. As mentioned before I’ve been to Trinidad a handful of times, but never Tobago. Back in February my cousin found a good deal on tickets to Trinidad from New York. We didn’t really want to spend time in the city, so we called a few family members that lived in Trinidad to...

MLK Weekend in Atlanta

My first solo trip of 2013 was to Atlanta, Georgia. To ease my traveling fear, I chose to go to locations where I can travel alone, but meet up with people I knew that lived there. I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott just outside the airport. The hotel provides free transportation to and from the airport and the local transit MARTA stops there so I did most, if not all...

Exploring Toronto

Exploring Toronto

I took my first trip to Toronto in October of 2012. After months of conversation with family there, I purchased a Saturday-Tuesday Megabus ticket and was on my way. It was a long ride (about 8-12 hrs). We made two rest stops in upstate NY, a stop at the Buffalo Airport, Buffalo bus station and of course the US/Canadian Customs and Border Protection. The only disappointment I had was not...
