Overall, the trip was like Murphy's law. Even as things got better, something made things worse. Two of the four parties we bought tickets for got cancelled, but we had fun at the parties we did attend. We hated where we stayed, we never made it to Maracas Beach, pieces of our costume were falling off of us, we didn't get our whole costume, we never did J'Ouvert and we never made it to Tobago. Personally, I would never go back to Trinidad, not for carnival or any other reason.
Hindsight, I was very proud of myself that I made my 30th birthday dream come true. I honestly had the time of my life on the road on carnival Tuesday.
