Why Fort-de-France, Martinique

You The very first place I ever visited outside of my home country of Jamaica is Fort-de-France, Martinique. I was 15 at the time and a French Exchange student. Needless to say I was bitten by the travel bug. The island is unique and has many charms as well as beaches. I’ve returned since, a few years back, and still love it. You should visit too.
