Columbus’ Caribbean in 21st century- A travelogue to Re-discover

by Suvra Biswas

Voyage, Discovery & Pirates: these are three integral parts of Caribbean history. Inspired by a book written by Marco polo who was a great explorer of 12th century, a young admiral named Christopher Columbus set up sails in Atlantic sea in 1492 in search of an unknown world. This voyage made him the greatest explorer of mankind and changed the course of history forever
After reading a couple of paragraphs from Columbus’s published Logbook and searching through the facts of his historical voyages, I got inspired to visit some of those places which he discovered during his explorations. In my trip first I went to Bahama, then to Dominican Republic( Hispaniola) followed by Cuba and Jamaica. I also travelled and stayed in two other pristine Caribbean islands- St Lucia and Grand Cayman which too were discovered by Columbus in his subsequent voyages. In my trips to various islands, I came across an open-air museum ( Columbus Park) in Jamaica as well as an underwater museum for sunken ships in Grand Cayman.
In this book, I have described my personal travel experience to all the tourist attractions and adventure stuff in these island countries and relevant historical facts with Columbus I attempted to inspire my readers to visit Caribbean islands , admire the natural beauty and appreciate Columbus’s contribution into this marvellous world of islands
