About Me

My Photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 85 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

George Town, Grand Cayman (country 98)

February 10, 2016

Spening 3 nights in Grand Cayman, by far the most expensive Caribbean Island I have visited. My only purpose here was to catch a flight to Havana, Cuba on the 11th so not doing much here. My accommodation here is a sofa in a house for $25 a night but BK and beach are close so all is good. Excited about Cuba and returning home soon to see grandkids.

Montego Bay, Jamaica (country 97)

February 6, 2016

Went to private beach today that hostel has access to because die not want to fight the crowds at The Strip where most tourists and cruise shippers are. Spending 4 nights here relaxing and laying out at pool for $25 a night. Next stop Grand Cayman on the 8th. Getting excited about Upcoming Cuba Trip.

Turks and Caicos (Grand Turk) Country 96

February 3, 2016

Had hoped to go whale watching today but seems the whale migration has decide to beginlate this year, therefore no whale boating excursions. Truly disappointed, but have seen whales breeching Alaska so will get over it. I did spend the day walking about 8 miles exploring the Island. Beautiful waterbut crazy  expensive. Traveling to Montego Bay, Jamaica, on the 4th. $25 a night in dorm. 4 nights here for same price as 1 night on Grand Turk.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (country 95)

January 30, 2016

After arriving at the airport, I decided NOT tp pay $35 US for taxi to Santo Domingo (20 miles). My research indicated outside the airport was a moto-taxi (ride on back of motorcycle) for $1 to the main highway to catch the local bus ($1) to Santo Domingo. This actually worked well after I finally convinced the moto-taxi driver I would not pay him $20 to go to Santo Domingo on his motorcycle.

After arriving at Parque Enriquilla, I used hostel's directions to walk 15 minutes to hostel. Nicest beaches are 30 minutes by local bus, not sure if I need another beach at the moment.
