Grenada is made up of three different islands, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Some of the Caribbean’s most gorgeous islands. You can grow practically anything in this fertile soil. For instance Sugar which was used for making rum to be shipped up to the cold north. But of course it’s the spices that put Grenada on the map. The French and British waged war in the 17th and 18th century over who controlled the island and it’s rich crops.., Ft. George, in the capital city was built by the Brits to protect their interests. But what do spices have to do with Romance you ask? A good question. Many of the spices grown here are valued for their aphrodisiac qualities. Take the odd- looking nutmeg. Scratch the surface of any nutmeg and there beats the heart of a mighty aphrodisiac. Excuse me if I seem a little nuts about nutmeg ... But The Compulsive Traveler is also a little obsessive. At Douglaston Spice Estate.... you can pick your own aphrodisiac. Here’s a wonderful combination. Nutmeg and beautiful girls. But what about... Cinnamon or Chocolate? Another celebrated aphrodisiac. Also grown here in Grenada. At the Belmont Estate you see the century-old way chocolate or cocoa beans were prepared for market...by dancing on them in huge copper pots. And this is the way the Big Drum dance, a traditional African Dance was kept alive over the centuries and is still reenacted today. Mix this with the local spices and you get an intoxicating dose of tropical sensuality. From the delicious fresh grilled lobster... To the heady fragrance of the flowers the island pleasures greet you everywhere Here on Carriacou, you see the direct link between spices, sensuality, romance, love and... you guessed it.... marriage. What could be a more perfect place for a wedding? The best part is you don’t have to go anywhere for your honeymoon. It’s all right here. A word of caution: don’t come to Grenada unless you’re prepared to have your passions ignited. (And go easy on the nutmeg.) less

It is flanked by the world-famous Diamond Head and the East Coast Cliffs. Hanauma, the "Curved" bay was declared a protected marine life conservation area and underwater park in 1967. Waiki Beach is Hawaiian for "Sprouting Water". This is one of the most famous beaches in the world. The two mile stretch of white sand coast is fronted by hotels and tourist facilities. This historic 15-block district is reported to be the oldest "Chinatown" in the United States, dating back 120 years. The Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbour commemorates the USS Arizona destroyed during the attack and the death of its 1,177 her crew. On the Eastern side of the island are great endless beaches like Kuhloa Beach Park and Waimanalo Beach. Haleiwa was established by missionaries in 1832.

This is the home of one of the world’s most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the tallest sea mountain in the world at more than 33,000 feet (Maunakea), the most massive mountain in the world (Maunaloa) and the largest park in the state (Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). All but two of the world’s climate zones generate everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to beautiful black sand beaches. Some of Hawaii Island's most breathtaking and accessible waterfalls like Akaka Falls can be discovered along the northeastern coast of the island, along the Hilo and Hamakua Coast. In 1816, John Palmer Parker, a western rancher and advisor to Kamehameha, married royal granddaughter Kipikane and was awarded two acres of land for $10. Today it is one of the world’s largest privately-owned cattle ranches: 150,000 acres raising 30,000 head of prime Angus and Charolais beef cattle. Located on the coast of Honaunau Bay in south Kona, Puuhonua o Honaunau immerses you in Hawaiian culture. This 180-acre national historic park was once the home of royal grounds and a place of refuge for ancient Hawaiian lawbreakers. less
