I ate three helpings of the kale salad.
I don’t think you are understanding what I’m saying. I ate three helpings of kale salad. It was absolutely fantastic… And I don’t even like kale. That is the beauty of Yellow Tomato Catering. They made me like kale.

So I called in the experts. Meet Roni Faida of The Travel Guru, who is a baggage handler at a major airline and knows a thing or two about packing light, and Kenna Williams, who travels to multiple countries on weeklong or 10-day trips with only a backpack. These are their recommendations.

Martinique is a beautiful country with a unique culture and history. But driving can be a…challenge, to put it mildly. Between the scarcity of automatic vehicles (I don’t drive stick) and the, shall we say, veracity and technique of Martinique drivers, driving in the country was high on our priority list.
