Live the dream

TURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS | Monday, 28 Jul 2008 | Views [530]

Everyone has a dream, however, some dreams are easier to follow than others. I thought that ours was ambitious, however, once I met and became friends with Deb, one of the instructors at Dive Provo, I decided that ours paled into insignificance.  Deb ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 1 Jun 2008 | Views [533] | Comments [1]

18 months seems like a long time, yet at the same time it passes in a blink of an eye - 18 months is how long I have lived and worked on the Turks & Caicos and also the last time I was in the UK, and the last time I saw some of my family and most ... Read more >

A day in North Caicos

TURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS | Monday, 3 Mar 2008 | Views [617]

The New Year saw a new service arrive on Providenciales - a ferry to North Caicos.  Previously the only way to visit the island was to fly, which was expensive and inconvenient.  The ferry service (only $40 return), combined with the completion of the ... Read more >

CUBA | Friday, 1 Feb 2008 | Views [2082]

I have 2 ‘best’ mates, Kes (who know works on Turks & Caicos) and Giz, who has lived in Spain for 7 years.   I have tried to see Giz at least once a year since he moved, and 2007 was the first year that we did not manage to catch up.   So when ... Read more >

We have now been living in the Turks & Caicos for a year, time seems to have flown and yet so much seems to have happened.  The island has gone from a unfamiliar place, to a place we call home with a circle of very good friends. The last few weeks ... Read more >

A few days in Nassau, Bahamas

BAHAMAS | Monday, 3 Dec 2007 | Views [799] | Comments [1] | Video

As I am about to change jobs here on TCI, the law requires me to leave/return to the island between jobs (odd I know). There are 3 realistic destinations - Miami, Dominican Republic and Bahamas.  I chose the Bahamas as Glen North (friend/instructor I ... Read more >

Final word : America & Americans

USA | Tuesday, 6 Nov 2007 | Views [443]

We all have preconceptions, and none more so than about America & Americans (amongst the people I know). I include myself in this statement. We all comment on how Americans don't really travel the world (in the main), many don't have passports and ... Read more >

USA Roadtrip

USA | Sunday, 7 Oct 2007 | Views [587] | Comments [1]

It was time to leave Vegas, easier said than done with hangovers, blistering heat and an unwilling Jo (who did not want to get out of bed).  Finally, car collected and packed we set off on our 9 day roadtrip, 10 minutes later Jo was asleep and I was ... Read more >

Aloha from Hawaii

USA | Sunday, 23 Sep 2007 | Views [544] | Comments [2]

Hawaii is in the middle of nowhere and thats a fact.  We left Vegas and spent about 45 minutes flying over mainland USA, comprising mainly of barren land and snow capped mountain ranges, then we hit (not literally) the sea, for the next 5 hours that ... Read more >

Vegas Baby !

USA | Monday, 17 Sep 2007 | Views [577] | Comments [1]

Having arrived on TCI 9 months ago, at night, it was great to leave during the day, allowing us the sight of the islands from the air and the reef structure surrounding the islands, we also passed over the Bahamas, before finally arriving in Miami.  ... Read more >
