Our travel list – the May edition

Welcome to our blog, Carnivalista Lifestyle.  And as we do at the beginning of every month, here’s our round up of monthly virtual and in-person events.  Feel free to use this as a travel checklist for now, while you’re in lock down mode and then later when you’re ready to travel!

Here’s what’s on our list:
Friday Facebook Live with Esha
  • This is a mainstay on our travel checklist.  Every Friday at 12:30 pm EST, join Esha on Facebook as she goes live to spread a little positivity, on various topics like travel, food and the Caribbean Carnival culture.
  • To get a notification of when Esha’s live every Friday, like our Ultimate Trinidad Carnival Facebook page to get notified.  Click here to visit and like our Facebook page.
Ultimate Insiders Movie Night

This event is exclusively for our Ultimate Insiders and Ultimate Insiders+ members!  It’s time for virtual movie night and on the bill is Bazodee, starring Mr. “Heh-haaaaa” himself, Machel Montano.  More details will be made available in the Ultimate Insiders Facebook group.

In case you’re not an Ultimate Insiders+ member, you can join us on Patreon and you’ll then be added to our private Facebook group where there’s more info about the event.  Click here to join us on Patreon.

Caribbean Cook Up Live!

The next edition of our monthly virtual cooking class – Caribbean Cook Up – is here!  Learn to make delicious and mouthwatering Caribbean foods right in the comfort of your own home.

This month’s edition on our travel checklist will take you to the Eastern Caribbean – from Antigua to Trinidad – where we’ll make stewed saltfish with dumplings and ground provision.  Saltfish, also known as salted codfish is a staple throughout the Caribbean.  It’s easy to prepare and goes especially well with boiled dumplings and ground provisions like green fig, cassava and yam.

  • You’ll be provided with a recipe, ingredient list and be ready to cook the meal live with Esha on Zoom.  After the event, you’ll also have access to the recording.
  • Date: Sunday May 23,  at 1:30 pm EST
  • Register for this event today!  Click here.
Ultimate Crop Over – live Q&A

Carnivalista Marketing Method
