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 on 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...

How I spent MLK Weekend in Atlanta

My first solo trip of 2013 was to Atlanta, Georgia. I stayed in the Courtyard Marriott just outside the airport and it provides a free shuttle. Since the local transit, MARTA stops there so I did most, if not all traveling that way. After purchasing a Breeze Pass, I took the “red line” train getting off at the Five Points station. I visited The Underground which is a mini-mall with...

Exploring Toronto in Four Days

Exploring Toronto

I took my first trip to Toronto in October of 2012. After months of conversation with family, I purchased a 4-day bus ticket and was on my way. The ride was long (about 8-12 hrs). We made two rest stops in upstate NY, Buffalo Airport, Buffalo bus station and US/Canadian Customs and Border Protection. The only disappointment was not getting my passport stamped when entering Canada. I took the red-eye...
