Port of Spain
Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.
There is a quarentine in Trinidad even though there is rabies here so I wish we could have brought our cat. It is expensive so I bring stuff from home each year but you can get everything here, just costs more.
We are a family of 6 and travel very light so everything I have taken I have needed.
