Fun facts from the Caribbean

 I'm honored to have Krystal/Kay guest post today.  She is a brilliant, beautiful, funny woman who is from the little slice of paradise - the Carribbean. 

Hey guys, I'm Kay and I blog over at The Kay Times. Erin has kindly let me take over her blog today. I love Erin's blog especially since she lives in Australia, which is where my sister lives. I visited Australia last year and I love it there. I love visiting new places and experiencing new cultures and traditions and Australia blew me away. 
Speaking of culture and tradition, I am from the beautiful twin isle state of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. Having blogged for over a year now, I realize that not many peeps know about my beautiful country and so I thought I'd share a few things about my home with you. 

The Steelpan, that musical instrument that you hear overtime the Caribbean is mentioned in the media, was created in Trinidad and Tobago

We also created the musical genre Soca - take a listen:
 
We host the best Carnival on the face of the earth - ask anyone - Brazil has nothing on us
 
Ever heard of the book Robinson Crusoe? Well it's based on Tobago ...
 
We are the only Oil Producing country in the Caribbean
 
We eat really unique food

We consider a day at the beach a really good day ... thankfully there are beautiful beaches on both islands! 

I hope you enjoyed just a snippet about my country. For more, you can check out this post where I posted in more detail about my beautiful country. 
Thank you Erin for letting me take over your blog for the day. Until next time :)

Alright...she's convinced me...we all need to get together and have a blogger trip to visit Krystal! Who's with me?

  2. Well this is just not fair. Where can I win a million dollars so I can just up and visit T&T whenever I want? I need to look into this. Great post, Kay!

I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
