An eight hour flight, and multiple mosquito bites is all worth it when your destination is Dominica. With it’s climatic heat of thirty plus degrees and mountainous views of the sea, everything is tropical. I’m back on my travels and I have been enjoying the sun, sea and lifestyle in Dominica. When I talk about Dominica I normally get the response ‘Oh yes, I’ve heard of Dominica Republic’, I then explain that there’s Dominica Republic, which is a Spanish speaking island and there’s also Dominica, were English and creole is the main language and its also known as the ‘nature island’ of the Caribbean.
It’s nearly been ten years since the last time I visited. Although I’ve previously explored the island, it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful this place is. The country is untouched and unspoilt with breath taking views. My first stop was the Fort Young Hotel in the capital of Dominica, Roseau. Interestingly, the hotel was built on a hill which was formed from a volcanic eruption. It has beautiful sea views and an amazing history.
