A nature park is not the place to party

Its normal now that holidays in sweet T&T is all about the partying. Whether desecrating religious observance, falsifying the reason for school breaks or trivialising sombre events such as Independence, parties are the classic one size fits all mood medicine. Young, well-off, not so young, not so well off, there’s always a reason for a party, for faking a merrier mood. Thing is we go overboard, opting to do so in spaces where well … silence belongs. Begging a tiny consideration though. Where do those of us who wish to enjoy nature as it ought, go?

Reigniting the tourism

Community tourism is defined as tourism which takes into account current, future, economic, social and environment impacts, even as it strives to provide for visitors, homeboys, big industry players and the afterthought, natural environment. Even as we speak Tobago, armed with this definition - niftily provided by the World Tourism Organization, is reaching out once more to the traveling public in the developed north. If we persevere we might get lucky; assuming the budget goes where its supposed to and hurricanes are fake news.
