This place is special to me because it is emotionally connected to my childhood. My dad was born in this region and we took this trip several times by ourselves and with our extended family when my sisters and I were little, and we have many fond memories and funny anecdotes from these trips. The south of the Dominican Republic is beautiful and it is very rich in biodiversity.
Queen's Park Savannah or "The Savannah" as we call it in Trinidad is one of my favorite places to be. Situated in Port of Spain, it is considered to be the world's largest roundabout (260 acres)! Around the savannah, there are beautiful historical houses and buildings, known as The Magnificent Seven that date back to the beginning of the 20th century. All year round, you can visit the zoo, the botanical gardens, picnic, jog or take a stroll and enjoy the delicious street food. As Trinidad is a melting pot of ethnicities, you can indulge in Indian dishes, creole food or taste a fresh coconut while admiring the skills of the vendor as he skillfully cuts the coconut with a cutlass. The Savannah truly comes to life during the Carnival season. Steelband competitions known as Panorama take place, and all of the carnival bands dance and "wine" through the streets of Port of Spain in their beautiful, colorful costumes. Calypsonians are local singers who also compete and perform on stage. The best soca song that is played wins the title of Road March. It is a one of a kind experience, a place really worth visiting!
A little passion project for my friend Hope Schaffer-Colling who witnessed first hand the destruction of Hurricane Dorian. I long admired her adventurous spirit to move from NY to SF then to sell it all for a simple life on the tropical island of Elbow Cay in the Bahamas with her husband. The ABC's of Hope Town is an art print featuring many of the islands iconic landmarks and a dash of Bahamian nomenclature. A digital download is available with a $20 (minimum) GoFundMe donation directly benefiting Hope Town Primary School.
This is a map of the itinerary for a local high school band's Spring Break trip to Puerto Rico in 2019. It highlights the various places they'll see and things they'll do on their 7-day adventure. An illustrated map like this helps students and parents visualize where they will travel and what activities they will participate in.
My parents were missionaries to St. Vincent for ten years so several of my early years were spent in these locations. I've mainly noted places that stuck out in my memory as wonderful experiences.
It would really be a pity if you came to St. Vincent and didn't at least cover these spots.
I visited Puerto Rico last winter and found it amazing. In this drawing, I wanted to show the variety of the experiences one can enjoy over there : the jungle, the small surrounding islands (Culebra!) with their beautiful white sandy beaches, San Juan with it's colourful buildings, Ponce with it's spanish mission style churches! The only thing missing is a beautiful plate of 'mofongo con camarones', but alas, I had no more room!
