Yea Kimbo: you are going to have a blast! It's not a foo-foo, it's a sailing ship, and oh does she sail. Gorgeous ship, fantastic crew and always fun passengers. and then there's the sea, the beaches, the bars.......

Hi, Kimbo! My niece and I will also be there! It's here first time too. I've sailed more than I can count, but it'll be my second time this year on Vela.

So Kimbo and I met up in Houston - not where we wanted to be, but with all the AA cancellations we finally arrived in Trinidad. Staying at a wonderful hotel near the airport (Picaro Village Suites) and we'll hop a Caribbean Airlines flight in the morning to Grenada. Kimbo and husband (Brad) are off to do whatever, but my niece (Katie) and I will meet Mandoo at the airport for our island tour. Then to Vela on Sunday. It was Definitely AN ADVENTURE getting into our final destination.
