Untouched Paradise in Tobago
Show Notes

"When you get off the plane in Tobago, you just breathe differently....you truly relax."

Tobago, a small jewel-bright island in the Caribbean, is a paradise seemingly untouched by time. Here, birds chirp in lush rainforests, warm seas whisper over white sands, and music echoes from every town and village. And to explore the abundant offerings of this small yet lively place, host Aaron Millar is speaking with several different Tobago natives and residents.

You'll hear from Alicia Edwards and John Arnold about Tobago's many cultural festivals and unique events, including the longstanding traditions of goat and crab racing, Ole Time Wedding reenactments, a tradition called Sunday School that has nothing to do with church, and many more. Then, you'll follow lifelong birder Zolani Frank through the vivid rainforests, across hidden beaches, and under rushing waterfalls as he gives his best tips for enjoying all that nature offers in Tobago.

So pour a beverage and put your feet up, because this episode is going to whisk you away to a state of pure relaxation and bliss.
