I am going on a Caribbean holiday

Being retired and having a little spare cash available is, of course, the perfect combination for someone who loves travelling. In my younger days I used to go to far-off destinations such as Australia and New Zealand, but now that I am older a weekend in Paris is usually enough to satisfy my travel urges. Up to now, the winter has been just too much for me to handle. It seems that as one grows older the winters become colder and wetter. This one has been the worst in a row of bad ones. That’s when I started reading up about tropical holiday destinations; places where the sun always shines and where it never snows.

After going through a lot of travel brochures I settled on one featuring Caribbean holidays from ITC. Most of the others I got from the local travel agent, but this one I ordered through the ITC website. I must admit they have a huge selection and I found it very hard to choose a specific destination.

After ordering the brochure from the ITC site I requested a live quote. I was very impressed with how quickly they responded. Later they even called me back to explain a few things I was not clear about.

If you had to choose between such inviting destinations as Bermuda, Barbados, the Bahamas, Antiqua, Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, the French Caribbean, Grenada or Jamaica for a tropical holiday, which one would you go for? Eventually I settled on Grenada. It has everything the other islands can offer in terms of beaches and sunshine, but it has that extra allure, which one can’t find on most of the others, spices. I have always been intrigued by spices since my youth and to visit a real spice island is, in a certain sense, the fulfilment of a dream.

I am going to stay in the Spice Island Beach Resort. What a perfect name for a holiday resort on a real spice island. I am really looking forward to wandering through the narrow streets of the capital, St Georges and admiring the beautiful French villas to be found there.

The ITC site has a huge selection of different accommodation options, from hotels to resorts to luxury self-catering apartments. I chose the resort, because it is situated right on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. They have two restaurants on site, as well as a bar and there’s also a beautiful swimming pool.
