When I was on Grand Cayman last month, it wasn’t just to sunbathe on Seven Mile Beach and swim, or rather wade, with the stingrays. (And it certainly wasn’t to run the Cayman marathon!) I was there for the 6th annual Cayman Jazz Fest, which took place on the evenings of Thurs., Dec. 3rd—Sat., Dec […]
I love buying souvenirs when I travel. No matter how many pictures I take, I still want a tangible memory. Something that I can hold in my hand and think, I was there. But I won't just buy any old souvenir. Oh no, it has to be perfect — at least in that moment when […]
No, I didn’t run the Cayman Island Marathon. But I certainly applaud those who did, as the marathon started at 5 AM. That’s why it looks so dark in the photo — in the Caymans, the sun doesn’t rise this time of year until almost 7 AM. The reason why the race starts so early […]
It was hard to leave Grand Cayman yesterday and return to frosty NYC. The weather was ridiculously good during the entire time I was there and the Caribbean sea always looked so inviting, with its different shades of blue.

It’s cool and rainy tonight in NYC, but I’m digging out my shorts and bathing suits. That’s because I’m leaving tomorrow morning on a press trip to Grand Cayman island. I’m really excited for it. Not only because I love Caribbean islands (which I do), but because I’ll be attending the Cayman Jazz Fest!
