Ziggy and Me!

Well I guess this is the beginning of my next adventure!

I’ve had so many in my life and so this is just another turning point.

I never thought I would ever live in a cold country and here I am living in Ottawa, Canada!

After 12 years, I finally listened to my body and have decided not to live through another cold and sunless winter!

So here I am again on another journey. This time to the south, the Caribbean Islands!

This research took me months on the Internet, looking for a place to call home.

A place that reminds me of where I came from. Not Canada but Cote D’Ivoire, West Africa where I grew up and spend most of my life.

My first advice to all out there is… Listen to you inner voice, don’t ignore it! That is what happened to me.

It happened to me this year. It was like something lit up in my mind and I decided to follow it.

My first thought was… I need to get out of my comfort zone and go out and explore. I can’t spend the rest of my life with what if’s…

So I started researching…

1st criteria… the safest place to go as I am a single mum and will be living there with just my dog…

Somewhere where it was not over exploited and not too expensive.

All of a sudden, this Island that I had never heard about popped up! Dominica.. Hummm well I started to research this hidden Island and it said it was called the lost island of the Caribbean… That piqued my interest right there… 🙂

So my research started. Months and months of Google!

I have posted some of the sites I found that helped me in making my decision.

Once I had made up my mind that this was the island for me, I now had to think of the practical stuff.

I have split up the information on different pages so it is easier for people.

There is the pet information, flight information, connections to the island, hotels on the other islands, accommodation and rental information.

I have tried to do it step by step so that it is easy to read.
