Blogging the Caribbean



(ˆ◡ˆ) Greetings from beautiful Aruba! 


Bookmarked these Caribbean blog articles before leaving, and enjoyed reading on the plane ride to One Happy Island . . .


On Tobago, Mermen Come Calling

Some of the islands superstition and folklore are African influenced, but other nations who once ruled the island also left behind their oral traditions. 

One interesting piece of folklore are the Mermen and Fairy Maids - a colorful twist on the traditional mermaid legends. 

Island elders say they come from the deep waters off the villages of Speyside and Charlotteville, where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic Ocean. They come seeking the fairy maids who are thought to inhabit the island’s rivers and waterfalls. Find out more at NY Times Travel

When you approach the island by boat it is easy to see the form of a ‘plump virgin’ lying on her back. Take a look!
