The real Caribbean Experience

Jump to last reply

hello there, i am 20 years old and I've officially just finished my 3rd year of undergrad! yay! I've been traveling since the tender age of 2 and began traveling alone at the age of 14. My travels SO FAR consist of 15 states and 3 islands in the Caribbean. i visit the Caribbean more often to visit family because that's where my entire family is from and lives.

For spring break i traveled to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, before my arrival i researched and visited many websites to find opinions on food and excursions, and i found some pretty neat stuff but it wasn't til i was on the beach getting a hat hand weaved, is simply asked "where are the best places to fully experience Puerto Rico?" after that conversation on the beach i must say tasted some of the best cuisine, saw the most amazing beaches and visited the hottest spots on the island. i accomplished all this not from the help of the internet, but from the locals. This has changed my mindset when visiting any foreign place, if your seeking adventure and thrill you need to go straight to the source, the locals, who know more about the area your visiting than another other resource.

Yes, there are the BEAUTIFUL beaches and exhilarating activities that can be done in the Caribbean, But there are a lot of hidden gems in the Caribbean that tourist don't get to experience, these gems you wont find on TripAdvisor, or Expedia. The Caribbean is filled with so much rich culture that i believe everyone should see or experience.

I've recently stumbled upon Travel vlogging, and many talented travel vloggers and bloggers on youtube, and it has encouraged me to want create my own blog and channel on youtube!
I would like to begin planning trips and documenting my travels showing the world all the Caribbean culture has to offer, so travelers can make the most of their trip. btw, Not only in the Caribbean but in the states as well, there is so much Caribbean influence in many different states!
I would like to build a team of people who share a passion for travel and would love to experience this journey with me! Ideally i would like the team to contain 1. A photographer/ videographer 2.journalist 3. Anyone interested! and myself.

thank you for reading this far! any suggestions/questions please reply! or email at kiracut3@gmail i would love feedback!
