We visited Tobago in March/2013, following a very hard winter in the UK, with some of the lowest temperatures on record. We left our son James in charge of the house and strict instructions to use his time wisely and revise for his impending A Level exams.
As our plane landed in Tobago, following a 9 hours flight from London, we stepped out of the plane to a warm sunshine and a landscape that looked lush and bright.
From the airport we went to pick up our hired car, a Jeep, 4 wheel drive, that proved to be the right choice for us. Driving was easy as being a former colony they drive on the same side of the road as we do in the UK (and petrol is ridiculously cheap too!)
