Postcard from Trinidad & Tobago

I know it must seem like I'm always down in the Caribbean, but this time it was for work, not pleasure. And there was really very little pleasure. When these sort of trips come about, it's usually 15-hour days, non-stop, back-to-back, in conference rooms.

True, I did get to take a 5-minute walk on a beach and there were a few nice dinners, but other than those teensy pockets, it was an exhausting trip. The "touristy" highlight, though, was getting a tour of the Angostura Distillery (by now you know me and cocktails).

And then I came home to a bit of a surprise, but more on that tomorrow...maybe the day after, because honestly, at this point a nice long snooze is weighing more heavily on me than wrapping my head around the thing I want to share.

So in the meantime, a few pictures for you—don't worry, none from aforementioned conference rooms:

  2. I agree with Alla. i bet it feels nice to know the gorgeous views are right around the corner even if its means staying in the conference room.

  3. you know sometimes it's kind of depressing going somewhere where everyone else IS able to enjoy themselves and experience the place... but at least you get the few moments of beauty in between the craziness...

    1. So true! I made it my mission to inhale those little bits of tropical beauty, even if they were fleeting :).
