      These pictures are from different places. The past 2 years I visited tons of places around Haiti. I am going to put the name of the area on top of each pictures. You should definitely plan a visit there. It is extremely beautiful.

        I was born and raised there and only went back once in 2009. I need to visit Jacmel!

    I am 100% sure I’ll visit Haiti some day. Just not sure when exactly 🙂
    Very beautiful photos you have here!

        ohohoh! this sounds good! we should totally do it! I go every year anyways to visit my family.

        Definitely! The idea of visiting Haiti got me excited and already looking at flights to Port-au-Prince (just some proactive basic research)
        And yes, having a friend familiar with a place I visit is priceless. I’m not the relax in a fenced in resort kind of person. I like to get out and experience the real things 🙂

        I hope duriing your new visit I will find the time out of my buisy habits to go explore more of my own place with you. Always envied your freedom and mobolity the time you were around. And the pictures are gorgeous too! Some places like Ile de la Tortue, Jacmel and Ile a Vache are on top of my list.

        You should definitely do it! Gather some friends and just go. Don’t over-think it and take a leap of faith 🙂 It is not so bad in the backwoods of Haiti. A day trip in Furcy is a good way to start. For Ile de la Tortue, you need to be very prepared.

    What lovely photos of what seems a fascinating place!

    • September 9, 2012 9:46 am

      Thank you! I love Haiti and I think it is a fascinating place worth a (thoughtfully planned) visit. I will be posting more pics of Haiti twice per month on Thursday.

    I love your photos. Your composition with lots of negative space is something I respond to!

    • September 12, 2012 12:38 pm

      Thank you! and also thank you for teaching me something new because I had no idea that I was using negative space for my pictures 🙂 I just snap whatever looks good.

    Funny how this post inspired me. I was going to comment but my reply ended being so long and personal that I decided to transform it into a new post for my blog! 😉 I’m sincere though about going out more to explore the many beautiful things out there!

    • September 22, 2012 11:28 am

      When is that new post coming? I have been looking for it.

  6. September 28, 2012 12:42 pm

    Love these shots. I’m from Jacmel, love my hometown. I found your blog on Paola’s blog, it’s so exciting to find other Haitian bloggers.

    • September 30, 2012 6:41 pm

      Happy you like my blog. I am a huge fan of Paola’s blog also. Jacmel was my second home I went there almost every weekend to relax and eat some seaside food at Raymond les Bains. I am craving some good grilled fish, mmmmmmmm

    How come such a beautifull place is not loaded with tourists? I would love to visit Tortue island; looks like a forgotten place….?

      You are totally right! but unfortunately Haiti has a bad reputation and getting there is really not for the faint of heart. It takes hours a lots of patience but the rewards are priceless
