FLYING OVER CARIBBEAN (4K UHD) Beautiful Nature Scenery with Relaxing Music | 4K VIDEO ULTRA HD [Video]

FLYING OVER CARIBBEAN (4K UHD) Amazing Beautiful Nature Scenery with Relaxing Music | 4K VIDEO ULTRA HDThe islands of the Caribbean Sea or West Indies are an extensive archipelago in the far west of the Atlantic Ocean, mostly strung between North and South America. They’ve long been known as a resort vacation destination for honeymooners and retirees, but a small movement toward eco-tourism and backpacking has started to open up the Caribbean to more independent travel. With year-round good weather (with the occasional but sometimes serious exception of hurricane season in the late summer and early fall), promotional air fares from Europe and North America, and hundreds of islands to explore, the Caribbean offers something for almost everyone.The Caribbean islands were first inhabited by the Arawak Indians, then were invaded by a more aggressive tribe, the Caribs. Unfortunately, neither could appreciate their victory forever, although the Arawaks may have had a quiet reign of nearly two millenia. Then the Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, French, Danish, and British arrived, after which the Carib population steeply declined due to various factors. The islands have known many historic battles and more than a few pirate stories.The Caribbean islands are made up of island groups including Greater Antilles, Lesser Antilles, Leeward Antilles, and the Windward Islands.The islands in the Caribbean are also sometimes referred to as the West Indies. Christopher Columbus thought he had reached the Indies (Asia) on his voyage to find another route there. Instead he had reached the Caribbean. The Caribbean was named the West Indies to account for Columbus’ mistake.caribbean, caribbean 4k, caribbean relaxation film, 4k, caribbean relaxation, relaxation film, calming music, stress relief, scenic relaxation, 4k video, 4k video 60fps, video 4k, 4k videos, relax 4k, piano, ultra hd, piano music, bgm, background music, focus, soothing relaxation, calm, soothing, music, beautiful piano music, Piano Relax, piano relaxing, relaxing music, nature sounds, caribbean 4k video, caribbean island, caribbean untra hd, caribbean travel, 4k nature, 4k 60fps hdr📌 ♪ BigRicePiano ♪◽ https://spoti.fi/3ysT8zT◾ https://apple.co/3ww1HZu◽ https://bigrice.bandcamp.com◾ https://www.youtube.com/c/BigRicePiano📌 Contacts:◽ relax@wondermusic.us◾ channel@wondermusic.us
