Kavin Austin Blake is passionate about fishing, but that also means traveling to the places where the big fish are. Today, the staff at Interviewing Experts talks to Kavin Austin Blake about some of his favorite destinations.
Interviewing Experts: We’ve heard you like traveling to the Caribbean for fishing. What are some of your favorite spots?
Kavin Austin Blake: San Juan, Puerto Rico has always been a favorite of mine…
Interviewing Experts: What do you like to do in San Juan?
Kavin Austin Blake: There’s lots of golf, surfing and exploring there, as well as some phenomenal restaurants and casinos.
Interviewing Experts: I’ve always wanted to visit Jamaica…
Kavin Austin Blake: I’d encourage you to go. There’s so much more to Jamaica than what you see in the commercials. Great horseback riding, island tours, great food, really friendly people.
Interviewing Experts: Have you ever been to Nassau?
Kavin Austin Blake: Yes, another of my favorites. Excellent snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as terrific fishing. I’ve been there several times.
Interviewing Experts: And what about the Dominican Republic?
Kavin Austin Blake: Yes, that’s a great vacation destination too. I’ve been to Punta Cana, which is off the beaten track. It’s especially great in the off-season, really peaceful and relaxed.
Interviewing Experts: Do you have a favorite, though?
Kavin Austin Blake: Well, if I had to pick a “favorite,” it would probably be Aruba. There is so much to do there…rock climbing, Harley-Davidson tours, coastline exploration, great casino and hotels. It’s great for a wedding destination, a family vacation – anything, really!
Interviewing Experts: What is it that makes you passionate about travel?
Kavin Austin Blake: I feel a little sorry for the people who don’t or can’t get out and travel. It’s so enlightening and broadens your view so much to see the world and experience other cultures.
Interviewing Experts: Why the Caribbean in particular, though?
Kavin Austin Blake: Well, there’s the fishing… (laughs) But it’s much more than that. The Caribbean is just a great, affordable destination for honeymooners or vacationers or anybody who wants to get away. Very welcoming and inviting culture, great food, great people.
Interviewing Experts: It’s a break from the mundane.
Kavin Austin Blake: Absolutely. It gives you a chance to get away from the work/home routine and do something exotic, but still in your safety zone.
Interviewing Experts: It sounds like you can find about anything you want to do there…
Kavin Austin Blake: Yes, all the cities and islands are unique, but there’s a huge range of stuff you can avail yourself of there.
Interviewing Experts: Are there some other destinations in the Caribbean you still want to go to?
Kavin Austin Blake: Yes, I haven’t been to Tobago or Guadeloupe yet…
Interviewing Experts: Well, thanks for meeting with us today!
Kavin Austin Blake: Absolutely, I’d be happy to anytime.
