I have never been there, one day I hope to go there.
It's a great place in a lot of ways.
Merry Christmas yourself. Obviously I'm done shopping which is why I'm on HubPages this afternoon.
I am cooking while hubbing, how is it going there in your part of the world??
Sunny here, and a little bit warmer..
It's going just fine. After I get past Christmas, it will be time to head to the Caribbean for a vacation.
Anyone who can cook and hub at the same time is truly talented.
I am typing while it is slowly cooking,,,the other has a timer
Have a great vacation and share here some pics...
Spending my 30th birthday dancing at a beach party, drunk on rum. Spending the next day being sick on a boat trip from drinking too much rum the previous night.
I know the feeling. We took a catamarran cruise to Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica. On the ride back, the crew started pouring rum punch and kept our glasses full the entire way back.
We spent the rest of the afternoon sleeping (ahem) in our cruise cabin.
The carribean is so beautiful. The water is so blue and the sand is so fine. They have gorgeous shells on the beaches and lovely rainforests. I love People and the weather there too
We found a little beach on Paradise Island where there were lots of locals. It was awesome!
Dominica is a great place to visit. its a relatively affordable vacation spot for the views and serene locations it offers. you can visit cascading waterfalls, secret beaches, rainforests with nature hikes... picture Pirates of the Caribbean and you will have a pretty accurate view of how Dominica looks.
Scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & 3 were actually filmed here..its a great Caribbean destination whether you want to visit for a vacation or a destination wedding, or just to kick back and relax...
Check out my hub - it covers the various sites in Dominica and its written from a locals perspective as I live here with my Husband...
My wife and I have visited Jamaica almost every year for over a decade because we can stay there for less than the cost of a Florida vacation. This also includes the price of the flight, as we usually fly out of Orlando. Negril is where we choose to stay on the beautiful island as we love the cliffs and the beach life there.
My most memorable experience there was the ride from the airport in Montego Bay to Negril, about an hour drive along the very scenic coast and through several small towns on the way. The highway was being improved which caused much mayhem among the drivers as horns seemed to be blowing constantly. I will never complain about drivers over here again, but I've never actually witnessed a wreck despite the many times we've been there.
We also were delayed from our flight home for a few days because of a hurricane, but it was nothing worse than a Georgia thunderstorm where we were staying. Wonderful people there and certainly a beautiful place with plenty to do and see. The water is indescribably gorgeous!
Beautiful place. I bet you really enjoyed it with your wife.
You can't really make any money selling bikinis there. For sure not the top part.
Ah! Thanks for reminding me of these added "perks"!
Samantha aka Sammy. I'm more familiar with her identical twin sister Tammy. What a pair those two are.
I'll never forget this time in Jamaica when this guy walks into a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant where I was having lunch and he passed out on the floor. People gathered around to help him by fanning and doing everything they could to help him regain consciousness.
Someone peeled an orange and started squeezing the juice into his mouth, whereupon this guy suddenly comes back to life, pushes the person away and yells, "Luk yah man! If me did want orange, me woulda fall down in
I just got back from Curacao. I would recommend other islands before I recommend going there (unless you like to scuba dive). But Willemstad is a very nice city to visit on a southern Caribbean cruise.
Oh boy, the Caribbean is my dream holiday and it got put on the back burner quite a while back...it's right back in front again now. Thanks to the OP!
you should check out Dominica - its stunning & not quite commercialised like other Caribbean islands... If your aim is to have a nature oriented trip, then Dominica is definitely the place to visit...
I live on the island, & have written a hub about the popular sites on the island:

The most exotic place I've been to is Saint Lucia which is one of the Caribbean islands down towards the tip of South America. It was really hot and the island is very heavily forested. We decided to take a special trip on an old Tall Ships vessel that sailed up the coastline for a day. They served lunch and drinks on the ship and we went into Soufriere to the drive-in volcano and to see the botanical gardens. It was really the most amazing trip we've ever taken!
Rescuing a giant sea turtle on one of several trips to St. John Island (USVI). I love Maho Bay there - and on one trip we rented a sailboat to get to a remote beach for snorkeling. You couldn't reach it by road - so we had the entire cove to ourselves. Except for this poor turtle stranded in the hot sand, entangled in a fishing net. Freeing that turtle and watching him (we decided it was a he) dash for the sea, and knowing we had saved his life, was an incredible feeling.

I can't say I've heard of Christmas till I arrived in NZ 10 years ago. New Years Day was the big celebration and still is for me. Having said that, today, every christmas we generally do the same routine - pull out the christmas tree, hide those presents and fire up the ovens! How do you celebrate...

Is it rude not to send a Christmas card to someone who sent one to you?
