With the cold weather we've been having here in the Northeast, I thought you might enjoy a post about Cathy & Barry's latest trip to Christmas Island. I have to admit, I didn't even know there was such a place, let alone where it is on a map. However, after seeing their photos I'm convinced that I must go there someday... Here's what Cathy had to say about their trip.
"We were in Christmas Island with a few friends earlier in January. It was nice to get out of the deep freeze for a while! We spent a couple days in Honolulu and then went to Christmas Island. We love this place, not for the 5-star accommodations (you won't find any), but for the simple life one finds there and, of course, for the bonefish and trevally - of which we found many! The Captain Cook Hotel hasn't changed much over the years. The rooms are simple, clean, air-conditioned, and offer hot showers. The food is plentiful and good. The fishing is excellent and the people are over the top. Like I said - we love Christmas Island - just wish it were closer!"
