My Holiday In... Tobago
WHAT I LIKED
In October, I went to Tobago with my mum, dad and brother Magnus. We stayed in Castara, a fishing village, in a little wooden house on top of a hill. Everyone was so friendly, and the beaches and wildlife were amazing.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
Only the humidity and the mosquitoes.
WHAT I BOUGHT
A T-shirt that says "Tobago" on it for myself, and a shell necklace for my mum.
WHAT I ATE AND DRANK
For breakfast watermelon; for lunch a "roti" (like curry in a wrap, but more tasty); and for dinner either a "bus-up-shut" (a type of roti) or kingfish, which we cooked. We drank Carib shandy.
WHAT I SAW
A horsewhip snake in a tree, a giant caterpillar, a huge moth, a big centipede, hummingbirds, a shark, a turtle and a pod of dolphins.
WOULD I GO BACK?
Yes, but I would like to be able to dive next time I go.
