About Us – A TOURIST IN THE CARIBBEAN

About Us

After years of travel throughout the world to over 45 countries the dynamic mother/daughter duo, Carol and Brittany decided it was time to write a blog together.  This experience started around 2003 in Southern California when the younger was a junior tennis player playing at the local clubs, which years later escalated to becoming a top world-class junior which took them to places around the world including countries in Europe, Asia, Australia, South Africa, and the Caribbean.  The Caribbean has always held a special place in their hearts as Carol is originally from the Caribbean, so the beauty, warmth and the charm of the island always attracted them which kept them wanting to see and learn more about these little gems that sit quietly between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It was not until the younger had packed up the racket and was doing an Internship program in Rome, Italy that she decided that she should do more to bring awareness to the beauty and charm of these wonderful islands.  It all started when she was invited to a seminar on ‘Americans in Italy’. ‘It was amazing,’ she said, all aspects of tourism were discussed which made it very simple for tourists to become familiarized with their country long before they stepped foot on their shores. At that moment was when she decided that she can do the same for her beloved Caribbean Islands and began discussing it with her mother and A Tourist in the Caribbean was born. Today Carol is retired and shares her time between her beloved Caribbean islands and the US while helping out with the blog.  Brittany resides in Southern California but makes frequent trips to the Caribbean at every opportunity she gets.
