So my first trip that I will be highlighting will be my trip to Trinidad and Tobago. I have been to Trinidad hundreds of times in my life (I use to live there with my grandparents, then once moving to the United States, my parents would send my sister and I back to spend all of our summers in Trinidad) but this has been the longest time that I have gone without going. I use to go to Trinidad every year but once my grandmother passed away in 2011 visiting Trinidad went to the back burner. This trip will actually also encompass a family trip to Tobago for a “Family Reunion”. My immediately family and I are the only ones who dont live in Trinidad, so once we arrive to T&T, the family reunion can commence! This trip is a little bit more special because I will be bringing my boyfriend with me. In all of my years of dating and travelling to Trinidad, I have never brought anyone “home” for my family to meet. I am very excited and hope that my boyfriend does not get overwhelmed by my 8 cousins (theres 10 of us all together), my 4 cray cray aunts (my father is the only boy), and all the other family members who are attending this trip. We will be in the republic of Trinidad and Tobago for all of 10 days. A portion of that time will be spent in Tobago. I am just really excited that I will be able to show my boyfriend one of the biggest parts of me, and that is Trinidad.
