Last month I woke up to the reality that there are no good and up-to-date English-language guidebooks on Guadeloupe, my home in the Caribbean. Yet there are tons of American tourists coming here currently with the new crazy-cheap flights from the East Coast of the USA. Fares start at $69 one-way! Most of the town a return trip will cost you around $300, but that’s still VERY cheap compared to the pre-Norwegian airline prices. Needless to say, I was super excited when they announced these flights back in the summer time.
And now I’m also extremely excited to announce that soon there will be an awesome new e-book available for people heading to Guadeloupe: The Quick Gwada Guide! Written by yours truly.
I’m currently in the process of putting in the final finishing touches to the e-book (who knew that picking and choosing photos and formatting text could be so time-consuming??) and will be selling it through this blog soon enough. The book will answer all the commonly asked questions, and include tons of tips for your stay in “tropical France.” The Quick Gwada Guide will also help you save money with its budget travel tips for this island that is one of the most expensive in the Caribbean.
Please stay tuned and feel free get in touch if you want to be among the first ones to receive an electronic copy!
Does your guidebook include common phrases used in Guadeloupe?
How can I order this?
The book includes just a few commonly used French words and phrases, as I figured people can look up most language issues with smartphone apps and dictionaries easily enough (and French pronunciation is always tough to figure out anyway based on written text!). Mostly the guide focuses on practical advice for visitors and the best things to do here. You can send me an email at email@example.com to order a copy. 🙂
