Guadeloupe is a Caribbean island with which I have a love/hate relationship.The Passenger to Paradise has spent two long vacations on this scenic destination and has a lot to write about both these trips. One of the most memorable events occurred when a thief entered our resort bedroom in the middle of the night and made off with all our valuables including our passports. Imagine being in a French-speaking country without your passports and with no money.
Another traumatic experience there occurred when my husband blew out his knee playing tennis. After that, he spent almost all of our two-week vacation hobbling around on crutches.
Although the scenery is lovely, like that of the others islands we've visited, I don't plan to make another trip to Guadeloupe. After all something even more traumatic might happen the next time around.
Have you had a vacation trip you'd rather forget?
