CARIBBEAN

As my final blog post for the spring semester, my last pending travel trip for this summer is revisiting some countries in the Caribbean. My mom and I fell in love with our trip last summer and have been talking about going back this summer. I plan to travel to different countries and learn more about different cultures. Some countries that I’m interested in visiting the most are the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and the US Virgin Islands.

FLORIDA

I will be traveling to Florida again this summer, also known as my second home. I’ve traveled to Florida yearly to multiple times a year for over 8 years now. I have a lot of family though out Fort Lauderdale to Orlando. I’m excited to go back because last year was the first year I did not go. I also have spring break plans to go again with friends. It should be an exciting year in Florida. Like my previous blog post, I plan to blog about these trips when I come back also.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

I have recently found out that I’ll be traveling throughout Southern California this summer. I’m really excited because I’ve been wanting to explore the west coast for awhile now. Some things I plan on doing while I’m there is going to San Diego, LA, and enjoy the beaches! I plan to shop and do a lot of outdoors activities. I’m also a big fan of art so I hope to see what art museums and exhibits Cali has to offer. Unlike the East Coast the West Coast is known for cliffs and rocky beaches which I’m interested to experience. This is planned for  early June so I hope to blog about it afterwards!

Nassau, Bahamas

This past summer I traveled to 3 islands in the Bahamas; Coco Cay, Nassau, and a small island off of Nassau.  It was an amazing experience and I would love to go back again.  This is a new subdomain I have just created for the culture module of my DGST class but I’ve really always wanted to create a travel blog so it was the perfect idea. I chose Nassau, Bahamas for the first post because we just finished reading Midnight Robber and I remembered going to Junkanoo Beach which is the picture below. Junkanoo Beach in Nassau is a small beach off of the cruise port. In the book Midnight Robber, Junkanoo was one of the many words that stood out because if you’re not familiar with Caribbean culture it probably sounded like a bizarre word. Junkanoo was relevant in the book Midnight Robber because it is a street parade known for the costumes, music, and color while also being a big part of Caribbean culture in general.
