|Price 11 weeks ago|
My bro and I discussed the various flight options and I input them all into the carnival spreadsheet that I live my life by. To my surprise the flights were $200 cheaper than they were 11 weeks ago. If you are willing to have 2 layovers you can get a flight even cheaper (ATL-POS $580). Not bad for a June purchase cause I paid $570 when I purchased my 2014 flight in March of 2013.

So with no lodging secured yet (remember that lodging is about $400/night), I got a flight to Trinidad carnival 2015. This year I stayed with a friend who had an apartment right off the Ave and the proximity to the action was beyond amazing, but she no longer lives there. In previous years I stayed at the Hilton and the lame azz Carlton Savannah. Also there is no guarantee that I will make my way back in Bliss/Tribe. My bro said the craziest thing, “You know a lot of people, you should be able to secure a costume for yourself if anything.” Like I could ever have a kick ass carnival without my twin, we are the dynamic duo.
I thought about not leaving until Friday cause I really don’t care about the fetes, I just wanna do Caesar’s Army, jouvert and play mas. But the carnival crackhead withdrawals would kick in Wednesday when everyone else is flying out, so my compromise was to fly out Thursday instead and surprise surprise the price to leave Thursday was even cheaper. Well to be honest with you, I put two fights on hold, I need to pray to the carnival gods before I decide which to purchase, but I definitely will be purchasing in the morning.
I said last year that I was just going to go to Trinidad carnival every year until I die and I see now that my statement was correct. Who could purposely miss all this fun???
