My wife and I moved from the USA to the Turks and Caicos Islands over two years ago. I signed on here to see if there are any other active TCI residents posting.

We boat, fish, and dive a lot. Photography is a big hobby, and we post a blog which is a journal of our lives as two Americans who decided to move to a small tropical island nation. Of course everybody has a blog these days.

Any other people out there in the TCI ?

Welcome to TP!

Sorry to say there don't appear to be many other members from TCI, at least not members that have actually entered it into their profile :) Boating, fishing and diving a lot; sounds like the ideal place to live for a while!! How are internet connections down there?

Hello again,
Sorry I have not responded since joining up. We have been busy down here in our little island home. We are now entering our fourth year as residents of the Turks and Caicos Islands. We have built a home on a small hilltop overlooking the ocean. We have bought a boat and imported it from the USA. We have had great times diving and fishing on that boat. And last month (Sept. 08) we lost that boat in Hurricane Hanna. Which was only a few days before Hurricane Ike. These were the two most devasting hurricanes to hit this country in 48 years.

We started a blog about living in the TCI, and the popularity of it has astounded us. We have had over 10,000 visitors from 105 countries. And we have ongoing email conversations with people from all over as a result. We have met blog readers who visited the TCI on vacation.

If anyone has any specific questions about the TCI please feel free to contact us, and probably a good place to start would be through the blog and there are over 160 posts in it so please look around if you decide to check it out. I like the underwater photos best, myself. The TCI has got to be one of the best diving spots on earth.

I see that the rules here say I cannot post a link to the blog, but anyone who does a google search for this screen name will find it.

Happy trails!
