Turks and Caicos Islands

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. They consist of the two island groups Turks and Caicos. Since my flight was canceled from Jamaica to the Dominican Republic, the new flight went over the Turks & Caicos Islands. There I had to immigrate and got a stamp in my passport.

Travel Tips

Planning

  • I have been to England several times. London is by far the most popular destination, with thousands of tourists even in the cold winter.
  • I visited Stonehenge on a day trip and took a train from London to Salisbury. The Hop on Hop off bus, which waits on arrival at the train station, took me to Stonehenge.
  • I visited Bath and Oxford over the Weekend, which are connected by bus from London.

Transport

  • The subway, also called Tube, is the fastest means of transport in London and can be navigated with Google Maps.
  • For transport between the cities I can recommend Rom2Rio. My experience was that a bus is much faster and cheaper than a train.
  • I can recommend Skyscanner to find the cheapest flight.

Accommodation

  • I always stayed in hostels and booked them with HostelWorld.
