Our travel list – the October edition

Hi there!  Thank you for visiting our blog, Carnivalista Lifestyle.  This month brings together 2 of our favourites – the fall season along with our monthly trip list! This month’s edition showcases a roundup of virtual events and in-person events to add to your trip list.

Keep in mind all events on this trip list are in chronological order.  If you want to see our in-person events, you’ll need to read on to the end of the trip list.

Here’s what’s coming up:

Trinidad Carnival Stay-cay

Although Caribbean Carnivals are cancelled for the next few months, that doesn’t mean you can’t add the experience to your trip list virtually with us! Take a look at two major events we’ve planned for you:

  • On Saturday, October 10 at 10 am EST, join us for our live virtual Zumba class with sweet soca music to get you ready during your Stay-cay (just like preparing for Trinidad Carnival!)
  • Then on Sunday, October 11 at 1 pm EST, we invite you to our All-white Party with a live DJ. It’ll be just like being at Lime at the Hyatt in Trinidad! We’ll also tune into a live soca music concert while dancing (and drinking) of course!

Cooking with Esha: saltfish buljol with fried bake
  • Saltfish buljol with fried bake is a staple on the Caribbean island Trinidad!  Cook along to create this delicious meal ideal for lunch or brunch.
  • You’ll be provided with a recipe, ingredient list and be ready to cook the meal live with Esha on Zoom.

Soca love 104 Live!
  • A live soca music session anyone?  Ah reddi!
  • If you:
    • Know nothing about soca music, know a little about soca music or are a soca junkie, this is the event you won’t want to miss!
    • Don’t miss listening to soca music aka “the happiest music in the world” (in Esha’s mind anyway) 🙂
    • Soca 104 is little history, a few surprises and a lot of sweet soca music.
  • You won’t regret adding this event to your checklist.  Listening to soca music is like taking a vacay in your mind, any time you want!
  • Date: Friday Oct 30 at 11:30 am EST
  • You must be an Ultimate Insiders+ member to get access to this event.
