Guadeloupe Islands Commemorates Joan Jetsetter's Work
Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board writes about Joan Jetsetter's visit and celebrates her travel videos
Guadeloupe is an under-the-radar Caribbean island that is incredibly scenic and an ideal candidate for a video series. So on my recent visit, I couldn't help but film everything all the time. The Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board caught wind of my videos, dedicated a page to my Guadeloupe content and created a banner about me on their homepage to further promote my work. You can read the story on the tourism board's website here. An excerpt is below.
Joan Jetsetter's Road Trip to the Guadeloupe Islands
In-the-know visitors come to enjoy Guadeloupe's sailing culture, quiet beaches, French Caribbean cuisine and Creole heritage. There is much more to uncover as well. What follows are five things everyone should do when visiting Guadeloupe—the “Pearl of the French Caribbean."
Guadeloupe is made of five different islands, with five distinct flavors. And you’re going to want to visit each of the islands, so budget your time wisely. Arguably the most scenic of them all is Les Saintes. Although you should try to stay longer, if you only have a day, here’s how you should spend your time.
One of my favorite indulgences in the islands of Guadeloupe is cod fritters smothered in something the locals call dog sauce. Dog sauce is a ubiquitous spicy, garlicy glaze that goes with just about any Guadeloupian dish. They say it’s so good, you’ll drool like a dog for it.
During a weeklong road trip through this Caribbean nation, my friends and I got a taste of what life might be like on Guadeloupe. We hiked La Soufrière Volcano and rewarded ourselves with a dip in its geothermal pool. We drank rum for breakfast at Domaine de Bellevue and visited penitentiary-turned-museum Fort Napoleon. While there, we also had an incredible vantage point of Les Saintes Bay—designated by UNESCO as one of 10 most beautiful bays in the world.
