Catamaran Cruise in Grenada

Again I was super lucky to have the opportunity to experience Pure Grenada.
As the Spice of the Caribbean, Grenada has a lot to offer.
For those who wants to know more about Grenada, check out Welcome to Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean I posted before.

Therefore, after such an intense series of meetings we had with voting hanging on the air (good thing we managed to reach consensus!), we were super ecstatic when the Catamaran Cruise in Grenada was prepared for all of us.
Not only the sailing with music, food and drinks, but also the snorkeling.

This time, let me share a glimpse of the Catamaran sail that my friends and I took in Grenada, as the courtesy of the Government of Grenada for all the participants of the Seminar.

And right at 3 PM, when the sun was scorchingly hot, we sailed around the 
We took the 'High Time', the fun boat which took us to the Bay where we had time chatting, enjoying the breeze and snorkeling at the Sculpture Garden.

Happy me, after snorkeling..
 Along the way, we see the beauty of St. George's, the Capital city of Grenada.
Dotted with colorful houses and buildings, including forts and churches, St. George's looks beautiful indeed.

On our way back to the Port, we enjoyed beautiful sunset from the boat.
It was magical.
A perfect way to end our day and our hard works.
I held my tears as I whispered my thanks to the Almighty.
For every blessings He has bestowed upon me and my family all these years.

Welcome to Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean!

Welcome to Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean!

I am officially exploring the Caribbean and Grenada is my 6th Caribbean countries.
I am super lucky indeed!
In the course of one year, I was somehow assigned to attend meetings and special missions in the Caribbean.
This time, I have Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, to explore.
Well, exploring this beautiful place in between meetings :).

And I have to say, I'm in love!
Grenada is truly wonderful.
It has stolen my heart since day one.

Picture this!
Miles of unspoiled white powdery beach and turquoise water, friendly smiles and exquisites cuisine to cater your hunger and the love of food. 
And those are only the beginning.

Turquoise water! Heaven..
When I first landed here after a 5-hour non-stop flight, I know it's going to be another unforgettable trip. I came here for work so I have to say I was not ready with all the information about this beautiful country. Instead, I brought all those drafts and documents in my bags. But I have to admit, I tossed everything in my suitcase, including my diving suite and gears.

We were welcome by a special Protocol team from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Grenada. Getting some help with the immigrations and luggages really sped up the process.
We went directly to our hotel from Maurice Bishop International Airport, which is only a short 15 minutes trip. Fast and zero traffic!

Getting to the Island vibes :)
As we touched down at our hotel as well as the venue of the meeting, Radisson Grenada Beach Resort, I felt like waking on the beach instantly!
From the balcony of my beach front room, I could see the famous Grand Anse beach and hear the waves and breezes calling.
Now this is what I call heaven!

Nevertheless, we arrived at around 3 PM and I was starving.
Together with my Ambassador, we had lunch at the hotel and finished our plates in the restaurant right beside the beach.
I truly enjoyed my plate of vegetable curry roti and callalou soup.
Done with our meals, I unpacked for a while and hit the beach right before sunset.
And Grand Anse beach really lift up its reputation as one of the most famous beaches in the Caribbean!

My best friend for exploring the beach
Before I share more stories of this blissful place, please enjoy some photos I took in my first couple of days in Saint George's, Grenada.
