What to Do in Roseau, Dominica When You’re Stuck There for a Week

Few people would visit the Commonwealth of Dominica for business reasons. The small island is relatively untouched, with mostly waterfalls and national parks to attract nature lovers and hikers. Unfortunately, when negotiations require you to spend all of your time in Roseau, its tiny capital, you miss out on all of that. You do, however, …

Emerald Pool, Dominica

Dear Luke and Leia, We are in the Commonwealth of Dominica, a small island nation in the Caribbean Sea. The capital is named Roseau and the island is called the Nature Island because it is so untouched. Christopher Columbus would still recognize it even today. This tropical island is lush, green, full of 365 freshwater rivers, and …

Heading to Dominica? Don’t Miss Calibishie

In 2009 Dan visited the Commonwealth of Dominica on business and I created an online journal so our family could read about our visit.

One Day in Willemstad, Curacao

Willemstad is the colorful capital of Curaçao, a southern Caribbean island just off the coast of South America. It’s a short flight from Panama so when it came time for us to renew our tourist visas, we decided to spend a weekend there, sightseeing. Little did we suspect, our plans would be thwarted.
