I'm a work in progress. I've lived a full life to this point, surviving experiences that less hardier souls may not have survived. I've been blessed many times over with second chances. I want to live my life one day at a time, so that I can experience fully the beauty of the moment. The past is gone, and I've spent way too many years trying to reconcile in my mind events which can no longer be undone. The future is not guaranteed. Today is all I have. I want to try and learn to make the most of it. It's a precious gift that can be gone in the blink of an eye.

My Review

I stayed in the Port of Spain during my visit to the islands of Trinidada and Tobago. My tour guide, Andy, arrived on time, picking me up in the lobby of my hotel. I paid $139.00 for my seven hour personal tour. I was pleased to be the only person because I wanted a low-key, less "touristy" experience. Andy provided just what I wanted. He didn't feel the need to talk on endlessly but allowed me to set the tone for the tour.

When I felt compelled to aske questions Andy was able to provide an asnwer to the question; when I just wanted to sit back and look out the window. He offered to stop at any point, allowing me again to set the pace and course.

The car was clean; he kept his music low. I felt safe during our the drive.

We stopped in the town of Rio Claro for lunch. Prior to heading out, we agreed on a pick up spot. As a woman traveling alone, he was reassuring and provided safety a few safety guidelines..

Though the Island Circle Tour didn't circumnavigate the whole island, it did cover Caribbian, inland and Atlantic views that provided a good overview of the third-world like country.

My experience with Andy went so well that I hired him a few days later to take me to the Caroni Swamp, where I joined a group of tourists for a swamp tour and visually stunning dusk dance of the island's Red Ibis as flocks filled the sky and made their way to their evening perch.
