In April we had the pleasure of visiting de very French and beautiful island of Guadeloupe. Baguettes and croissants in the morning, hardly any English spoken and presidential election posters on fences and walls. This was not especially what we were looking for ;-).
Our hope was to spend a few days in the rainforest, meet some iguanas (http://youtu.be/HBU9IaCl8s0)!, eat delicious seafood and simply have a good time.
It all worked out quite well. It was amazing to smell the forest after rainfall, enjoy the impressive coastlines, run into a special churchyard and watch the frigates and pelicans swallow their fishmeal. The bonus was the interesting minimal music the crickets made each and every night.
Really hope to be back one day. Enjoy!
