Welcome to new members - Islands_Countries group September 25, 2005 7:37 AM

This Care2 group is designed for the further education of those interested in the world as a whole.

My original interest was islands and resulted in a Yahoogroups list called OceanicIslands. A couple of years later, I realized that I could not report on countries that were not islands and so a sister group CountriesWorldwide was born.
Each post approx once per month to avoid overkill in the mailbox.
Postings are usually quite extensive and a bit big for these boxes but I'll post resumes here from time to time to whet the appetite.

Do join and do relate your travel or study experiences regarding Islands and Countries.

The subject is always according to Continent and Country or according to Ocean (incl tributaries) and Island as you will see as we go on.

I hope you will enjoy this group and contribute whatever and whenever you can.


PS For travel and how to get there cheaply, please join AirNutsgroup which was designed for feedback for which has worldwide links, reports, tips and recommendations as well as regular Airnews.

Too right matey September 26, 2005 9:54 AM

Sure thing!  The islands come first - like Isle of Man, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Ireland and Madagascar.

Anyone can form a country on firm ground where the wind doesn't blow

Actually, my first love is islands and it was the first of my two Yahoogroups  i.e.


which was founded over a year later.

Hi Gari!  new to the group today... interesting topic and realise that between being brought up in Ireland and Jersey in the Channel Islands and then moving to Australia and now dividing my time between a Greek island and India (the odd one out) that I must have some sort of island addiction so thought would join pronto!!!  Hope you have a lovely Christmas and look forward to your posts.  Marisha  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

thanks for the invite Gari April 05, 2006 4:06 PM

thanks for the invite, I too live on a rather big Island and have loads of family and friends on here and also travel to another island - the island of the big white cloud - New Zealand often to visit my mans family and friends, so I just love islands.

My hubby does alot of work near Phillip Island down south near Melbourne so we are really into those islands.

In june I am off to The Hayman islands and the surrounding island in Nrth Queensland so I will keep you posted on that one,
Suzi. xx

Thanks to all new members April 15, 2006 1:14 PM

A special thanks to all new members and a new posting will follow this Easter

I've been cleaning up at the Yahoogroup Islands-Countries which can't show the pictures that we can show here but can show much more text and thus the full stories of what appears here

Pass the word on and postings will become more frequent

That is apart for the period from April 24 thru around May 11 when travelling for new stories occasions absence

Cheers and a happy Easter

Trip to Indonesian Islands June 17, 2009 2:06 AM

I am planning a tour to few Indonesian Islands including Flores, Bali etc. and want to board the live aboard service which offers its guests to stay on board for one or more nights. I guess various water activities linke sailing, kayaking etc. could be best enjoyed at these places. Can anybody tell me which the right time to visit there is? While looking for the various tours I had come across this interesting tour: "" rel="nofollow" > How did you find it???
