This is a trip about meeting people, hiking in fantastic places, eating good food. Its also about exploring, oneself and nature. Pictures and storys will pop in during our trip.
We will stay at six different places on Dominica, we have arranged this trip just to be able to explore the island, we will stay East, West, South and north on the Island. On the West side of the island it is more hot and a dry climate. On the East side it is a bit cooler, and some more rain. Since it is an island with lots of rain forrest, it rains a lot, i have read that it rains about 7-9000 millimeters of rain per year, that is around 30 feet of rain... Me and Rose-Marie visited DA (Short for Dominica) for the first time in 2014, and we fell in love with the Island, we felt we have to go back.
Last time we had every day booked, a visit at a waterfall first day, river tubing the next day, everything was pre-decided. It was really fun, but this time we have decided to explore more on our own. We were lucky to get to know some people on DA on our first visit. One has a guide operating company on the island (Helen), and the other one works at a guesthouse.
He belongs to the Kalinago tribe, the last indian tribe in the west indies. They have a territory on the northeast side of the island, go there and visit them, there is a lot to see and do, look further HERE. We are really proud of knowing this guy, we got to know him when we went for a rainforrest hike last time we were there. He knows everything about the plants, herbs, what you need to know. We are really proud to know this man. /Peter & Rose-Marie.
