While I’m at home visiting my family, I’d love to share a few photos from my visit to Trinidad! Epic posts to come when I am back in the USA. For now, enjoy!

Gran Couva, Trinidad

Today my family visited a 100+ year old cocoa plantation in Gran Couva, Trinidad. It was so amazing and so cool to see exactly how the world’s best chocolate is made! Epic post and lots of photos to come!

I’m standing on cocoa beans!

The title of this post is inspired by a classic calypso by The Mighty Sniper.

And to eat the cocoa from the pod is amazing! Continue to enjoy your Trinidad stay and should you get to Tobago I hope to see some of your Tobago posts as well.

Great having you home, albeit, for too short a time. We really enjoyed sharing some special moments with you and Stephen. Love always, Dad and Mom

Where exactly is this estate in Gran Couva located, and what is the name? I am heading there next month, and i am in the process of planning my agenda and would like to visit some historical sites, and this estate peeked my interest. Thanks Ann

Its wonderful to know that you have kept those childhood memories and they are so rich in your life even at present. Keep Trinidad's culture and its presence in all you do. Proud of you and keep our Trinbagonian's flag flying high!!!
