What has been your biggest helpful hint from the forum?

I have learned to listen to my own advice - and get to my condo first, see what has been 'shared' or left behind for me to use. I no longer hit the supermarkets prior to my stays in a villa/condo.

Oh...and back LESS clothing!

My best tip came from the old AOL forum -- "There's much more to the Turks & Caicos than just Grace Bay."

Carry with you the reusable grocery bags that fold easily and even the six bottle wine totes.

We also carry water bottles and freeze some water in them and fill with the gallon containers at the IGA rather than use the small plastic bottles.

We are very ecology oriented.

Just wish we knew how they could recycle all of the empty bottles.....lol

Don't go to Taylor Bay. There is no shade or bathrooms and it is not worth it.

O.k., joebwan... while on the subject of "unusual tips," here's my all-time favorite from this forum:

"Everyone is SO rude. The more I complain, the more they ignore me!"

Joebwan...I'd be more than willing to 'donate' a bottle of wine - if I can get really 'good/accurate' directions to TB. I promise - I won't stay more than a few hours.

Oh Desi that one is priceless!!! LOL

I had 2 great tips from this forum :

1st tip was to go to the Conch Shack.. even though I had been to PRovo a number of times I had never heard of it before I joined this forum ! And Tip # 2 was 'rent a car it's easy to drive on the left '....which I didn't do before either cuz I didn't want to drive on the left or I was with a friend who lived on island.. but 1st time driving on the left was a BREEZE and I really quite enjoyed it !! So 2 great tips from this addictive ( as Want2B said) forum !! :-)
