A long, long, time ago...

I actually grew up on a farm in Bear, Delaware. Our farm was on Rt. 896, and a state park, Lums Pond was on one side of it. My parents, (my dad in particular), decided to go there and start a business with his best friend. I lived there for about two years, and it was so very long ago, I can only tell you of old memories.

Hope you like the heat!

It takes over 24 hours air travel time to reach Guam, from where we live in Delaware. It is so small, you can easily drive around the island several times while you visit. It is so hot, good luck in having the energy to do this. I wouldn't bother with make-up here, best to go el natural, whatever you wear will melt off of your face like butter. The rainy season is from December to March. I will give a few tips in the future, but they are going to be pretty general.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Tropical Paradise, Great Diving, Great People
  • Cons:Hot, Flying Cockroaches, Flying Termites, Typhoon Alley
  • In a nutshell:Great dive spot, expensive, the Chamarro People are Great
  • Last visit to Guam: Oct 1981

    Beautiful pictures, the sunset is just amazing! Guam seems fantastic and it's one of the places I'd really like to visit at least once in my life.
