Return to St. Eustatius Sustainability Conference September 2016


Published on

I returned to St. Eustatius to speak about Accessibility Tourism. Although I flew in one day, spoke the next day and then had to fly back to Toronto, I had a chance to walk around and re-acquaint myself with this very friendly island.
