Enjoying Trinidad
That is exactly how I like taking my vacations..exploring the non-tourist parts ...I am very happy that you all enjoyed Trinidad and Tobago..Yes Tobago has some of the worlds most beautiful beaches,in my opinion. But anyone taking these trips need to have a tour guide, either a friend from Trinidad or someone who is very familiar with the Island. There are a lot of crazy crimes there, like anywhere else, but being a tourist, makes you an easy target..so don't do the typical tourist thing but explore with a person who is knowledgeable about the places to go and places you should avoid.

An inspiration to us
Chris, you and Haley are an inspiration to all of us who enjoy traveling the world. It opens ones eyes to their cultures and how they live....so much more than a book or film. Dave and I look forward to seeing your pictures, commentary and travels.

You have not seen India
Hi Chris, Just read your blog about ur trip to India an am glad you enjoyed it. Well, am an Indian who has stayed for a pretty good time in the US ( New york), now settled in the UK. Basically I am from New Delhi and my husband is from Varanasi. Many things you have discussed here are right to a certain level, but I must say that even in the US or UK, I have seen more filth than this. If I start writing a blog about the things I have experienced here, that will go worse. Off course I love to stay here or in the US.. All I wanted to say is that you have not seen a tiniest part of India and hence you should not display your pics as ''Typical Scenes'' coz thats not :) No Offence, but you have only been to places which are famous for tourism and the things you have mentioned are the reason for tourism there. If you go to residential places and societies in big cities ( or even most suburbs), you will find things 10 times better. but then off course you didnt pay to visit that part, coz it doesnt offer you the same charm. I agree on situations you have described but they come from mostly poor and uneducated population which I guess behaves same in every Country according to their own standards. I am sure you agree on this.. Regards,

Trinidad and Tobago
I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay here in our little slice of Paradise. Make sure that when you return(if you haven't already!), that you return for Carnival. It is simply a blast!

world biodiversity is very important for all therefore let's joint hands in protecting and say NO to poaching, draining wetland, diverting rivers,dumping in the sea and cutting down forests.

I enjoyed your blog, especially like the photo of the sign at Yala, made me chuckle. We are thinking of Sri Lanka for a 2 week winter backpacking break, we are looking for some culture, food and some relaxation at the beach. I would appreciate if you could give me some reccomendations, do's and donts. Thanks Vik

Hotel in Rincon
Can you tell me the name of the hotel you guys stayed in Rincon? As I wrote to your wife on her blog, I was born and raised in PR but then moved to USA for 24 years I moved back 4 years ago and I'm kind off doing the tourist thing. The hubby and I are planning a weekend away from Aguadilla (That's where we live), and he mentioned Rincon the other day. Thanks. I really enjoyed both of your blogs!
