Grand Turk Revisited

In Uncategorized on February 21, 2013 at 11:06 am

For whatever reason, I always seem to have time off in Grand Turk, therefore I went on yet another super awesome fun excursion in Grand Turk. This time we went horseback riding! As an avid horse back rider, I’m always very concerned about the health and welfare of excursion horses. These ones were so happy and well fed. Once we were done riding they got to gallop around with the rest of their herd and weren’t even fenced in. Once I was happy that the horses were well cared for I had a fabulous time! The guides were very attentive and knowledgeable. They really made an effort to ensure that each guest was properly matched to a horse and that the equipment was properly adjusted. They also made sure to stop and take everyone’s cameras and take photos for us which was fabulous! I really enjoyed my time and would go back for sure!

Coast to Coast

In adventure, Carnival, Carnival Cruise Line on February 19, 2013 at 10:53 am

My lovely co-worker Susanne and I went on a few excursions recently!! The first of them being the Coast to Coast tour of Grand Turk! Grand Turk is a very small island, but it was really cool to get to see it all. We drove around in an open-air bus while the driver told us all about the island. We got to stop and go for a swim (of course I jumped right off the dock…I was actually the only one who went swimming, but I’m a sucker for an ocean swim, just can’t resist it!!) and explore the Grand Turk lighthouse, which was also beautiful!

Dune Buggies!

Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos is 7 miles long and 1 mile wide. Last week my colleague and I took a dune buggy tour all over the island. It was so much fun!!! We were very lucky because usually the dune buggy excursions sell out very quickly, but luckily this week there were two spots left for us!! I got to drive which was so much fun!! That’s something I miss about home quite a bit, driving. We had such a fun day out in the sun, tearing around in dune buggies, I quite enjoyed myself!! I’m almost done night shift! I’m a little bit scared to go back to the daytime, there’s so many people everywhere, it will certainly be an adjustment!
