Antoinette is curious about England, she sees England as an incomprehensible dream rather than a real place, or even an important palce. Rochester sees the Caribbean in much the same way, although he doesn't have to envision the dream, he is captivated by it.

Unlike Antoinette, Rochester seems to be annoyed by this curiosity. The two cannot understand each other because they don't see things in the same way. Rochester is eventually bored by the Caribbean and Antoinette never sees England as anything but a fairytale, even after she eventually arrives there.
