Indian River, Portsmouth, Dominica travel blog

Indian River

A travel blog entry by firestation22


The Carib tribe lived along Indian River; although I doubt they named it that. They obviously used it as a source of fresh water, but also for fishing and farming. Once again, Hollywood made it here for filming Pirates of the Caribbean. At least they ...

Dominica' s Finest Beach

A travel blog entry by firestation22

Middleham Falls

A travel blog entry by benjamingryson


Dominica was een waar avontuur. Het is een relatief groot eiland, met een relatief klein inwonersaantal. Dit maakt dat Dominica een eiland is waar de natuur nog in bijna orginele staat behouden is. Na enkele tussenlandingen op Nevis en Antigua, waren we ...
