So rushing it a bit I left the house and went 2 days to Les Saintes, 2 cute small islands south Guadeloupe. Sleeping in expensive bed and breakfast wasn't an option so I put my hammock wherever I could hide because free camping is not allowed (yeah it's free so...). I slept in the cliff of the south of the island the first night, facing the sea, sharing the place with wild goats. It was free and probably the best thing you can do, just me and the nature, by the sea, swinging ...
... went hiking, surfing (well, bodyboard attempting for me), sharing dinner all together at nights, etc. I hadn't met all of them at the festival but they straight away considered me as one of their housemates (well kind of) and I had some really quality time while there. I really enjoyed sharing their life to get an idea of what's to be an expat living in a Caribbean island. It looked a bit like normal working ...

The Genoa at the front was working ...
... This effectively stranded us on the island with not much to do except walk through the quite coastal town and walk up to the botanical gardens to peer through the fence as they were greedy with their pricing. Time on the boat, easy with no sailing and a perfect nights sleep.
We did make it to the rain forest in the middle of the island in the end and getting there was half the adventure. Waiting at the bus ...
