I grew up in the Caribbean and I took it for granted. My childhood years were spent in Trinidad and Tobago, #love👌🏾❤️, and my early adult years were spent in Jamaica 🇯🇲, where I found my love 😍. During those years I craved life in London and Paris. Fortunately for me, I have experienced it all and I can tell you with absolute certainty that Caribbean life is where exotic lives⛱.
Cheers to Caribbean Life. 🍾🥂
Whether you live in Barbados, Jamaica, St Vincent, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago or anywhere in the Caribbean region, you are blessed. Why? Let’s start with our weather. Rain falls and sun shines👌🏾. Our fruits are amazing. I got up this morning and had a cup of tea and ate a “Julie Mango”.

Our region is not perfect but remains untouched and naturally beautiful. From the blue mountains, waterfalls, beaches, birds, beautiful palm trees and our food. It’s a “feel good” vibe. The new buzz word in the first world countries is organic food. This where organic food is grown and where organic lives.
Don’t talk about our people, our music, our athletes and our cultures. We have given the world Bob Marley, Usain Bolt, Rihanna, Nikki Minaj, Cardi B, Winston Duke, and lots more. Out of many, we are truly one people. We live, love and laugh. Though some of them hate, love always win in the Caribbean. If one neighbor does not have food to eat, they can go by another neighbor or a friend. That’s how we live.
Caribbean Life is about fun, relaxation, warmth, endless days of sunshine, beautiful foliage, the smell of the ocean, the clear blue skies, drinking coconut water and eating a mango. The vibe is always positive and our people are free. If you have never experienced what I have described, come visit us soon and you are sure to find happiness.
