Bon Bini means ‘welcome’ in the lyrical language of Papiamento on Aruba – which is where I am this week. I am here to discover for myself why this small island has the highest repeat visitation of any destination in the Caribbean. And I get my first clue as I set foot on the island and my Passport is stamped ‘Welcome to Aruba’.

Tucked away in the southern most arc of the Caribbean islands, Grenada is a perfect little gem of an island: lush, scenic and friendly. As ever, I was there for the radio shows, but I had time to see the island, experience some of the island’s renowned diving and settle into the slower pace of island life.

There is an inverse relationship in travel between the ease of travelling to a place and the unspoilt nature of that place. And by ‘unspoilt’, I mean the degree to which the destination remains true to its own culture and not homogenized into "AnywhereVille".

  A white latticed balcony at coconut level in the pre-dawn hush of an early tropical morning…The earlier chorus of tree frogs has quietened to an occasional chirrup – the only sounds are the rustlings of the palm fronds a few feet seaward of the balcony and the gentle chuckle of the waves teasing the beach.
