From The Webmaster's Desk

 

We did not create Conga Bay to get rich or make lots of money.

 

Our first idea was to create a quiet seaside village where life stood still. But to stay online, we had to have funds and that is where our credible affiliate programs search started.

 

We had a creative idea challenge to design a unique site without any form of flash bells or whistles but to list everything related to travel.

 

It is also evident from our writings that we love the oceans and the waterways around us an do believe that their tiniest sounds are soothing and good for the mind, body, and soul.

 

But the ice shield which is important to the climate is melting at a very fast pace as we continue to see.

 

There is proof and that startling proof keeps growing of the damage being caused.

 

We all have a duty to do our part so as to make a difference for those now with us, and for those coming after us.

Why Conga Bay Was Created.

 

 After arriving in Barbados one very early morning after a late night flight in nineteen eighty five and being too excited to sleep, I sat on the balcony of my hotel room a few feet from the shores and with my headphones had the sweetest most unforgettable musical experiences possible. Here I am in the calypso and soca island of Barbados going classical listening to one of Joseph Haydn's concertos performed by Wynton Marsalis' Baroque Music For Trumpets accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra as the waves met with the sea walls that morning. It reminded me of the distant steel drum, and the old Robert Mitchum's movie " fire down below" as the trade winds brought the sound closer and closer then took it away. I must add, that a late friend of mine had the role of a limbo dancer in that movie with the haunting sound of the steel band or as some refer to "as steel drums" playing in the distance.

 

 About the Conga, I have always been fascinated with the Conga drum, the design and its sound and have owned several over the years. But the idea of creating something with the name Conga took hold in nineteen ninety nine when I registered the name congabay.com. The hotel at which I stayed was in a small community where the local folks were always interacting with each other and with the visitors. I wondered then if I could create a story about a mythical village "Conga Bay" a seaside town where life stood still. Just like the area where I stayed like the seaside town of famous Oistins where nothing changed like the sunrises and sunsets. I met many interesting people during my stay and one popular village guy who owned a beach house on the strip continued shouting Apollo, Apollo every he saw me. To be reminded (Apollo Creed) played by Carl Weathers of the Rocky movies. He was convinced and probably to this day, that I indeed was the one and only Apollo who came to Barbados to hide.

 

 That said, the most important aspect about travel is that we do sincerely believe its significant benefits are very much underestimated and since we are living in a global village, and travel plays a prominent role in this regard. How else can we have meaningful face to face dialogue with others in this shrinking global village? How else can we overcome the barriers of language and customs? I have always been fascinated with the oceans, the people around these oceans, and the serenity that seems real when in these coastal towns. It has a lot to do with the environment is my believe. From the Mediterranean, Caribbean, American New England states, to the Atlantic Canada provinces. There is nothing more refreshing than spending time around our beaches or waterways and observing the many aspects of the scenery and regular life. Those who live around these oceans always seem to have a laid back and welcoming attitude and positive outlook on life.

 

 Should you have feedback, suggestions or ideas, please feel free to send us some e mail. We are always happy to hear from worldwide visitors. That is what makes a webmaster's life so very interesting and enjoyable. Worth Repeating, we must add that it was not our plan initially to feature travel related ads but to stay online it had to be done. May all your purchasing transactions on this site through our affiliated sites be satisfactory and problem free.
