Ramblings of an Island Girl

Ramblings of an Island Girl A wake up call for the Caribbean (and the world)I recently visited Aruba and was amazed by the big steps the island has made towards protecting its unique and interesting eco-system and marine life. Aruba seems to be on the fast track to becoming one of the greenest and most eco-fabulous destinations in the Caribbean even though according to many locals there the island has yet a long way to go. But for me, coming from the former sister island to Aruba and fellow ex-colony of the Netherlands, St. Maarten, where single use plastic still reigns as king, I stand in...

Responsible glamping at Aruba Airstream

Responsible Glamping on Aruba at the Aruba Airstream By Riselle CelestinaIt was a Wednesday afternoon when I drove up to this remote location on Aruba.  I followed the voice on my Google Maps until I reached the general area in which I had to be. I then pulled over to check the further directions from Katrin, the owner of the property. She is detailed and precise. Her directions come complete with photos and are totally lost-safe. As a female traveling alone, I truly appreciate that, especially when staying in an isolated location in the middle of Aruba’s wilderness.   I followed the...

9 Must-see spots in Antwerp, Belgium

9 Must-see spots in Antwerp, Belgium By Riselle Celestina   Antwerp. The mere mention of this Belgian city’s name fills me with excitement. I am a true island girl and the Caribbean will always be home but L’Anvers is the only place in Europe that has managed to capture a piece of my heart. The bigger, more beautiful (in my opinion) sister of Brussels gets its name from the Dutch words “Hand Werpen” which translates to hand throwing. I know, you’re probably asking yourself why a city would be called after hand throwing. As the folklore story of the city goes there once was a giant...

5 not-so-well-known places in Paris

3 days in Paris and 5 not-so-well-known places you must see By Riselle Celestina   The title of this story should be “Less than 3 days in Paris” because in actuality we only got to spend two full days in the city. This story is about love, survival and determination and you will see why in a bit. It all started when my husband and I saw an advertisement for tickets to Paris that were dirt-cheap. Travel obsessed that we both are, we jumped on the opportunity and bought the tickets not knowing that the island would be struck by one of the strongest hurricanes recorded just around the time...
