Day 22 – Port of Spain, Trinidad


View MV Discovery - 2010 on dpedler's travel map.

08 Dec 2010

Today is Trinidad and the huge and very modern city of Port of Spain. Our tour guide very proudly pointed out the tall buildings as if this was the measure of success and prosperity. Some sightseeing, a walk through the Botanical Garden and a trip across the island to the highlight of the beautiful Maracas Beach.

A visit into town that afternoon (between showers) to watch the locals shop and get a feel for the culture. A wet day that almost spoilt the beach and trip into the city centre, didn't matter as it was a wonderful introduction to this island.

That night was another amazing meal. Monday the whole table at dinner had fresh marlin (none was left for late sitting – tough luck), Tuesday was a lobster bigger than my plate (best I have ever had) and tonight was a good portion of red snapper; all caught on the day – can't complain about the food on-board.
