  Updated Feb 2017   I’ve been to a few places in Caribbean but my trip to Providenciales (Provo), Turks and Caicos (TCI) is by far my favorite.  In fact just a few moments ago I woke up from a nap where I dreamed I was in TCI again.  I first became intrigued about TCI when I saw a picture on someone’s IG.
