Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Not everyday you hear about people like film maker Graham Hughes.

Hughes is the brain-child behind The WaterAid Odyssey – an epic adventure, a world first, a race against time, a year of living dangerously! 12 months, 90,000 kilometers, 200 sovereign states, 5 continents, 1 man and no flights!

With the help of the public, Graham also aims to raise £1,000,000 for WaterAid, the international charity whose mission is to overcome poverty by enabling the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education.

The WaterAid Odyssey continues as Hughes pushes forward in his journey through the Caribbean on his round-the-world Odyssey, trying to make up for lost time after encountering unexpected travel delays in the islands.

Lorna Brookes, one of Hughes associates is pleading for assistance to help get Hughes from Dominica to Antigua to St Kitts, and then on to the Dominican Republic.

In the video above, Hughes was “stuck” in St Vincent due to the slow availability of boats moving between the islands daily, and he was now behind in his time-line to complete the Odyssey in a 52-week period. Brookes said Hughes will be getting into St Lucia and trying to catch a ferry to Martinique on Wednesday night, and then another ferry to Dominica around lunch time on Thursday.

If everything goes as scheduled, Hughes will like to leave Dominica on Thursday afternoon. So if anyone knows any cargo companies that operate from Dominica who might be able to help transport Hughes to Dominican Republic.

The Odyssey can be tracked on Hughes’ website http://www.theodysseyexpedition.com/, and anyone wanting to help can contact him from his site as well.
