Heading_into_HellOops – one of these mentions slipped in at the end of March – but it’s a big one, so be sure and check it out! Another reference to GoErinGo by www.FoxNews.com. Here’re an excerpt of the first part of the article and my mention:

“Money is tight these days, everyone seems to have a hand in your pocket, and that’s just when you’re at home. Once on vacation you’ll confront multiple times what’s often the most vexing and awkward decision for a traveler: Do you tip this guy or gal standing before you, and if so, how much? And if you do tip, what’s in it for you? If you don’t have a tipping strategy to speak of, herein are a dozen tips on tipping for your next trip.” Read more:

“9. If you’re unsure about what to tip while on guided sports activities, world traveler Erin Michelson, who has been on kayaking, diving, and jungle hiking trips, among others, says “for these I always tip between 5-10% of the trip cost, especially if the guide is in charge of your physical safety and really works to ensure your trip is safe and enjoyable. I usually split the tip 5% to the head guide and 5% to the crew.” For more garden-variety day tours, she says she gives “a straight $5- $10 a day for a guide that performs his or her job well, provides a lot of good information, and patiently answers questions.”

The islands are stunningly beautiful, not only top side, but under the water as well. I’ve never had so much fun frolicking in the ocean – snorkeling and diving and swimming with abandon. Here’s a taste of my underwater adventures:
