I spent many a summer holiday and Christmas break at my grandparents house in Dominica (commonwealth of). On a clear day you could see the cars driving along the coast of Martinique from my Grandma’s kitchen door. It was strange because it seemed so close but in all the trips I made to Dominica, we never took a trip across the water to visit the island.
This is such a beautiful country steeped with an immense amount of history which is important to know regardless of race. I really want to show my daughter this country. Table Mountain, safaris, the stadiums, there are so many wonderful things to see and experience.
They are beautiful. End of story. Oh and there are sooo many of them!!
I have loads of reasons for liking this country, not the least because of Alexander McCall Smiths series of books. I love The Number One Ladies Detective series and even enjoyed the TV adaptations starring Jill Scott. They filmed the series in Botswana and it brought the books to life, being able to see the lush greenery and those beautiful people.
What can I say, what a huge country. Another country absolutely swamped with history. I studied Russian History during my A Levels and have had an interest ever since. Also I made some really good friends in China who were from Russia. They recommended a few places and would love to see them for myself.
