Reasons for trip


I won a holiday with the Telegraph and the Cayman Tourist Board.
The representative of the Cayman Travel Office in London did a excellent job of sorting the whole holiday out. For people who worry that the long flight in Economy does not have enough leg room still your fears you do on the 767 used. The hotel transits between airport and hotels and the flights between Grand Cayman and Little Cayman were a delight. The 2 day stay at Little Cayman at the Southern Beach Club (only 12 units) was as peaceful as you wanted it to be.

The Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman is as it says a 5 star hotel, the food was excellent and the rooms superb. The Beach was clean as was the sea. But the thing that really got me was the people working on the island, their manners and helpfulness was a surprise, where else have I come across such good manners from drivers – the traffic actually stopped going both ways without anybody honking their horns to let me cross the road, they know how to treat tourists. (Try that say in Malta !!!).

Now for the title of this piece, I have travelled a lot in this world, stopped in many countries, and had always wanted to go to a place were they were pleased I had gone there and therefore provided them with employment, and it happened here. A person working for the hotel set up my sun umbrella and sun lounger by the pool, I said thank you when he had finished, but I had no money on me to tip him. His answer was ‘thank you for coming here and allowing me to be employed’.
