Belgian travel blogger Maarten Travels (Maarten Matthias Reinout Stij) chats with us about his recent trip to Trinidad including his exciting Taste of Carnival experience this year. Catch up with Maarten and his adventures through his Instagram page here.
How did you enjoy a Taste of Carnival? What was your favourite part?
It was interesting to experience the part of Trinidad and Tobago Carnival, like the different styles of music and amazing costumes. I especially enjoyed the live music which was a part of the showcase.
What was your favorite local food you tried during your trip?
I was grateful to be invited by Stacy from Trinidad, who took me to Debe in southern Trinidad to try the best doubles.
What is one must try experience or attraction in Trinidad in your opinion?
That’s hard because of my limited experience, but probably a full-on Trinidad and Tobago Carnival experience when it happens next. I also enjoyed the boat tour of the Caroni Bird Sanctuary.
How did you enjoy your trip?
I really enjoy the comfort on the island and wish I could have stayed longer especially because I met some nice locals towards the end of my trip.
