IMHO real travelling anywhere is when tou don't stay in resort and go "outside" to the town and meet locals, visit many places, towns in that country, eat local, drink local... visit monuments, museums and also ordinary streets, cafes, restaurants and when you are lucky, homes.

 ... i think it is experienceing the culture and country outside of the tourist persona ... participate ... share ... experience ... guided tours rarely gives you an opportunity to do that ... house swaps are great ... windjammers are the best to sail the islands ...

Makes me wanna be there also, Roggy.

On your next tour, tour the Caribbean, Roggy. Get some sunshine, local food and drinks, bathe in the sulphur spring in Dominica, eat some mountain chicken (frogs, I think).

vutje, this is Mama Nature at her best. Look at the bountiful foliage. I just love it, house and all. I'd live there and and enjoy it all. All my food will be fresh from the soil. If I decide to eat meat again, I'll be getting fresh crayfish from the river. Girl,this is the life.

Roggy, your lizard's skin looks like snake skin. They're not cute at all.

Bobsey would make mince meat out of them, vutje. He's always searching inside the house for them. When one is too high on the wall for him to reach, I lift him up to get it. I'm afraid of those ugly reptiles.
