Sailing on a catamaran in Guadeloupe was a wonderful and unique adventure! I have been on several similar trips in the Caribbean, but Guadeloupe is unique in that it is French and is actually an archipelago of 5 islands among the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. It is a 3 hour direct flight from Miami. If you are interested in discovering all of Guadeloupe, but not by renting a sailboat, you can travel to the out islands by 20-45 minute ferries.
Most will agree that technology, the Internet and social media have completely revolutionized daily life. It only makes sense that those things have translated over into the travel industry. Airplanes are beginning to offer WiFi. Tickets are being issued directly to your smartphone. Instagram photos or tweets allow us a glimpse into countries around the world. But even more so, companies and industries are creating apps that assist travellers before, during and after their expeditions. Here at Big Adventure Travel, we’ve chosen 4 of our favorite apps that help you travel smarter.
In 2015, I had the opportunity to spend a glorious few months exploring the country of Uganda. Located in eastern central Africa, Uganda has been dubbed “the Pearl of Africa”, and rightly so. With always-green countrysides, miles of red clay, beautiful lakes, rich culture and inviting locals, Uganda is a hidden gem in Africa. With the best of both worlds in bustling city life and quiet towns, Uganda has many offerings for international travellers. If the busy streets of capital city Kampala aren’t your cup of tea, look no further than a retreat to the beautiful town of Jinja for both rest and adventure.
