Courtesy of The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota. This buttermilk and molasses bread is just what any table needs. Not only is it heavy with flavor and fragrance but it’s delivery is very original: you can serve the bread literally out of a can.

As the story goes, tight spaces and limited resource’s in a ship’s kitchen inspired this unique method of baking bread onboard sailing vessels.

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!😍😍

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.💧🔥

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!😍
After some incredible snorkeling in Toucari Bay with @wanderlustcaribbean we needed some well deserved substance to refuel our bodies! 🤿🐟🐠🏝
The Keep'in It Real restaurant was the ideal eatery for some tasty snapper 🐟 with all its delicious trimmings (local greens, fried plantains, fritters with some rice and beans). 
To wash it all down, some local Rum with passion fruit juice 😋 🍹
This is what experiencing a new destination should be like...amazing adventures, delicious food and connecting with like-minded enthusiasts!!😍🤗
