Over the years I’ve had a couple of opportunities to travel to the Caribbean, but for one reason or another I didn’t take any of those opportunities. I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of living in the islands and even bought a book that describes how each of the Caribbean islands are different. There are a variety of European ownerships among the islands, with corresponding different cultures, even languages and currencies. Some of the islands are mountainous and some are very flat and sandy. Not all of the beaches are suitable for sun bathing and swimming – some are volcanic rock and others are sharp and jagged corals.
Every time I meet someone who has been to the islands I ask them a ton of questions and I’m close to ready to commit to my own trip to at least one of the islands later this year. I’m still torn between the idea of taking a cruise ship that island hops to several of the different islands, or book a package where I fly to one particular island and spend the entire trip in one place to get to know it in more depth.
If I go to only one island, which one should it be? At the moment, the island that has my greatest interest is Grand Cayman Island. One of the guys from work went to Grand Cayman on his honeymoon a few years ago and he can’t stop singing its praises. Besides the fact that it was his honeymoon – he swears that this island has everything you would ever want in an island experience. He’s even looking a job there and has sent his resume to an online recruiting company called, BrightStaff, to help him find a job. Brightstaff is the leader in listing available cayman islands jobs. He’s even got me looking at the possibility of getting a job offshore and moving to the Cayman Islands.
Of course I could always do something totally of the wall and look into ubud bali accommodation where the exotic culture in Indonesia that I have always heard so much about through out the years would be a fascinating adventure. With a lot of things very similar with both locations it would be a totally different accommodation. I should take a bit of time and do some online research before making the decisions that will cost me a pretty penny either way!
