We were in Guadeloupe, January 12 until March 5. We stayed in three
different places for a week each and then a month on Basse Terre. And finished up
with a single night in Gosier to make our flying out easier.

our Airbnb places described below
We chose small places with interesting hosts in a variety of
locations on the island. The first three were on Grand Terre which is
the flatter, dryer of the two islands that make up Guadeloupe. We saw
more tourists in the first two towns, but then Port Louis was
mostly locals. The last place was up on the hill above Deshaies and the
beautiful golden beach of Grand Anse.
We took a slightly different angle this time. I took the laptop, left the video camera at home. I
tried to read more, exercise more and write more. I hoped that by
going slower I could do more.
