Roger Sutherland

My name is Roger and I am originally from the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia but now live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. My wife Jeanette and I have travelled to all the continents with the exception of Antartica but nevertheless have many other countries and areas still to experience in the future.

I did my first blog when we visited Europe for the second time in 2012, entitled Europe Potpourri. Had I known that I would have enjoyed blogging as much as I do, I would have started doing it earlier and included our first trip to Europe and Morocco and most certainly Australia, New Zealand and China. I believe that since then I may have improved my blogging a little and I hope that you enjoy what I share with you this time around.

For the time being I have placed my blogs in the archives and have left the one on my beautiful island St. Lucia for your enjoyment.

Jeanette and I love to travel and usually before a vacation is well underway, we are busy making broad plans for the next, God willing.

I will attempt through my blog to give a sense of what the island is and what its people are like. Enjoy it and you are most welcome to contact me or comment as you like. I was privileged to have been born on this jewel of the Caribbean which changed hands between Great Britain and France in earlier centuries fourteen times, before been finally ceded to Britain. Because of its strategic importance in the extended European conflict for the New World, it conjures up images ... read more
