Scott Eddy Enjoys the Food, Scenery and Culture of Trinidad
Scott’s first stop on his tour through Caribbean paradise takes us to the beautiful dual islands of Trinidad and Tobago. The VGT team arrives just one day after the annual celebration of Carnival, an event well known for participants’ colorful costumes and exuberant celebrations. Carnival originated in Trinidad and Tobago in the late 18th century when a flood of French settlers brought the Fat Tuesday masquerade party tradition with them to the island.
Follow Scott as he goes for a Segway ride with Miguel Mendoza of Gliders Fun Tours in Chaguaramas, along Trinidad’s rugged northwest coast. Along the tour, we learn that the U.S entered Trinidad in 1940 to build a strategic Naval point of operations. Scott also goes for a breathtaking ziplining adventure before meeting up with Miguel again, this time for delectable street food in the capital of Port of Spain.
