  • A Evening in Salisbury

    A local I met invited me to visit his village with him on a Friday night. I met his family , then we went to a small restaurant/bar and had BBQ ribs with chips. After dinner we just hung out and had a few bush rums ( locally produced rum, often flavored by placing cinnamon sticks, spice or herbs directly in the bottle). I watched in fascination as...

  • Syndicate Falls

    Somewhere along the road from Salisbury to Portsmouth, there is a little road off the side that heads through farms to a huge waterfall. Its not one of the major ones...and you cannot swim here. Syndicate Falls is a source of drinking water for locals...so DONT swim here! On the way you can see parrots in the trees or flying through the air! Really...

  • Crazy Callibishie!

    When I go back to Dominica..I'll be sure to actually stay in Callibishie! A beautiful stretch of coastline with lots of food opportunities, and a decent beach! Dominica didn't have huge sand beaches...and it was a bit rocky. I got to hold a coconut for the first time of this beach. You can view the ocean and a neighboring island...forget the name,...

    If you stay at Three Rivers Eco Lodge or are around Rosalie...stop by the village of Grand Fond. Grand Fond is a fairly tough uphill walk from 3 Rivers or a long car ride up a mountain side. Not to many tourists visit this place, but it was great. See how local Dominicans live and go to a local bar. At the end of the village there is a little bar...

  • Perdu Temps trail - the hardest of...

    Perdu Temps is a trail that cut across the eastern edge of the island. Going from Geneva on the south coast to Delices on the east, it rises from sea-level to almost 2,000ft.I'd recommend going from the Geneva end. Allow at least 5 hours - when I did it it took 6. Officially it's 4.8 miles long, but those aren't statute miles, they are Long...

  • WhitChurch shopping area in Roseau

    One of the first things that caught our eyes in Roseau was the lovely, sky blue, ornately decorated Whitchurch building to the right of the pier as you faced the street from the ships berth. So we decided to start our explorations of Roseau there.This is, of course, a shopping area with a small pub. It also has an interesting meeting room that we...

    For me it is often the people that make the place. Given enough time I like to talk to the locals and get to know them a little while I am also exploring their towns and mountains and valleys and seashore. Unfortunately, when one only has a day to explore an island it is almost impossible to make those new acquaintances.This guy is probably as...

    Roseau (pronounced 'ruse-oh') is one of the Caribbean's poorer capitals but it is not the shoddiest. Shopkeepers wash down the sidewalks every morning, the streets are lined with old and sometimes colorful stone-and-wood buildings (like the one in the picture), and mountains form a verdant and spectacular backdrop especially at sunset when rainbows...

    The waterfront area of Roseau is called the ‘Bay Front’ or officially as Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard. The seawall extending along this waterfront is lined with cafes and bars and seems to be a popular gathering place. In order to get a taste of the historic Dominica my wife and I strolled through Roseau, and a few of its backstreets, and had an...

  • Awesome views!

    Take a drive up to the village of Gallion, which overlooks Scott's Head/Soufriere Bay.The bay is beautiful enough, but this spot looks over it and has the most stunning views.The drive is a steep one but worth it. At the main junction in Soufriere, take a left up the hill (rahter than the left to the hot springs).

  • Twin Falls

    The Twin Falls are in a beautiful tropical jungle setting, but to find them is difficult, there are NO signs, NO directions and NO maps.If you want to try and find the Twin Falls you can do it in one of two ways. Take a local guide, or drive from Marigot in the direction of Roseau. About a third of the way there you will find a small store on the...

    This is a typical house outside of Roseau (the capital). This one was right next to Roxy's and were the owners of the tire garden.

    Don't forget to take note of all the beautiful flowers on the island and the inventive gardening--those are tires that these creative Dominicans used.

    For organised tours try Ken's Hinterland Adventure Tours (KHATS)Ken and his crew are very pleasant and knowledgeable. The tour desk at the Fort Young Hotel is run by them, although they also offer some tours from other operators, such as Dive Dominica.At the end of our holiday Ken picked us up from our hotel very early to take us to the hotel. When...

    Dominica Botanical Gardens(off Bath Road),Roseau, Dominica, West Indies. The Botanical Gardens is similar to a large park, however, more tropical. There you can see a live exibition of one of the world's rarest endangered birds-the Sisserou Parrot. You can see live photos in my travelogue of this rare feathered friend. You will also have an...

    The wildlife is wonderful. You do have to trek into the wilderness a bit-but not too far. This is a beautiful male peacock I so persistently took several photos of to get this one.
