Trinidad & Tobago, with personal photos

It was a special wish of mine to receive a postcard from Trinidad & Tobago through Postcrossing, because I traveled there with my parents, brother, and sister-in-law in 1998, when I was 14 years old. It was a birdwatching trip, and we stayed at the Asa Wright Nature Centre in the rainforest. I was a surly 14-year-old, so of course I didn't appreciate how wonderful it was at the time, but now I look back on it as one of the greatest adventures of my life so far. I really wanted some postcards from Trinidad. So I contacted Postcrossing user dolphia and she generously mailed me five beautiful postcards from Trinidad. 

Trinidad & Tobago are two islands located in the southern Caribbean, not far off the coast of Venezuela. It's one of the wealthiest nations in the Caribbean, with an industry-based economy, rather than agrarian. Trinidad is the birthplace of calypso music, steel drums, and the limbo. 

And where normally I would include a short Youtube video or a photo to help you experience Trinidad, I thought I would include a few of my family's personal photos to share my beautiful experience with you. :) Enjoy!
