Coconut Water

'He who plants a coconut tree plants food and drink, vessels and clothing, a home for himself and a heritage for his children'.  South Seas Saying

Hi all

Lets just into it.... Coconut water. I am in Love. I was on my way home from my Ayurvedic nutrition and diet course (needs its own blog post) and I told my Tuk Tuk driver that I had never tasted Coconut water from the Coconut so he drove all over looking for one for me to try. And we were in luck..... onto pictures...

All mine!!!!!!

Getting my drink on!!!!! Yummy goodness!!!!

Ajay - the nicest Tuk Tuk driver ever!!!!!!

So yeah, what else is there to say about Coconut water? Its smooth, tastes so sweet yet not tooo sweet. Basically its yummy goodness that is healthy. I know that by drinking coconut water it helps to detoxify the body, re-hydrates the body, increases the bodies metabolism thus reducing the weight, its a natural isotonic drink, promotes a healthy immune system and its a natural energy drink. So yeah, get on that coconut water drink pronto people!!!!!

Blessings, Joy and Coconut water


  1. These photos make you look like you are here in the Caribbean with us! We do the same thing here in Barbados - from the coconut vendor on the sidewalk to you two drinking. The more I see people and their way of life, the more I see how interconnected peoples are.

  2. I see many similarities with West Africa particularly Nigeria as well.

  3. @ Gigi, I by accident deleted your comment. Here are a few answers to your questions. With Language barriers I have found that most places I can get away with speaking English otherwise I just nod and smile. Its international and works everywhere.I also speak German and can understand Dutch (if it is spoken very slowly and clearly). For the most part, all of the places I have been too, I either have a friend (London, Berlin and Zurich)or family (Vienna) or people that became friends (Finland and India). In Europe its easier to travel as a lot of the countries are easily accessible via train, plane, buses and road, thus making it cheap to travel. This particular trip to India was sponsored in part by my parents and with my own (very little cash). What I find that works for me is to have an idea of why I am going to a place. I get bored very easily, so I need to make sort of like a 'to do' or 'to see' list and plan my trip around that. Otherwise too much money will be spent and I wouldn't get to see any places of interest. I hope this helps. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask.


Thank You for your comment!!!!!!!
