Completely Caribbean – Destination Special

Season: 5

We’re going Completely Caribbean here on The Travel Diaries this week. On today’s bonus destination special, we’ll be heading on a sun-soaked tour of the Caribbean islands, in partnership with the British Airways American Express Credit Card.


Unsurprisingly, it’s one of the most popular destinations to be picked each week on the pod, and in today’s episode lots of my lovely guests from the last five seasons will be recounting their favourite Caribbean travel memories – the islands they love – of course the islands are so diverse, each with their own distinct history, culture and landscape – as well as the best hotels, places to visit and hidden gems, taking us on a tour from the north to the south of the Caribbean.


And later we’ll be joined by Caribbean destination expert Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon aka Jet Set Sarah. Sarah is a Caribbean travel expert, award-winning travel journalist, and self-described “Carivangelist”, having visited and written about nearly all of the Caribbean islands. She’ll take us through the destinations chosen by my guests, as well as sharing her own Caribbean travel diaries.
