Brief Background

Hi, I am Rondel and this is my travel blog. I am from Trinidad and Tobago and have just begun my travel journey.

As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted the freedom of working for myself. After graduating during the pandemic at the end of 2021, the job market looked bleak. I remember waking up one day with just 45 TTD (equivalent to 6.50 USD at the time) in my bank account. Around this time, I hit a rough patch where I felt lost, battled with depression, and had no sense of direction.

At the beginning of 2023, I succeeded in landing a part-time position at my former workplace. Still, a longing for autonomy persisted. Then came Trinidad Carnival 2023. I decided to document the parade and start a YouTube channel to showcase the beauty of my homeland. As these were my first videos, they lacked quality, but they became quite popular. I uploaded four carnival videos in total, and each one garnered tens of thousands of views. As of now, the third video has racked up over 500,000 views. Within a month, I achieved monetization on YouTube.

This revelation ignited a newfound belief - this could be more than a passion; it could be a profession. I started posting more general videos about places and things to do in Trinidad, and over time, I started this blog to share my journey and inspire others to explore the world.
