The Time I Got Extremely Sunburnt in St Lucia with a Donut-Shaped Hole on my Chest

I couldn’t have been more relieved to be on a plane travelling over 6,000 kilometres to the Caribbean.

The good part of a year had flown by since I returned from Mallorca (you know, the trip where I got a drug syringe wedged in my foot) and I was itching to feel the sun on my skin once more.

We were about to embark on a 10-day island-hopping trip where we journeyed via small propeller plane to several Caribbean islands.

I was stoked.

I had never been on such a great adventure before!

The first stop on our adventure was the island of St Lucia.

Fun fact, St Lucia is one of only two countries in the world to be named after a woman.

We landed at ‘Hewanorra International Airport’ at the very bottom tip of the island and began our journey north in a taxi.

When you think of St Lucia you likely picture the two gorgeous Piton mountains jutting out to sea, covered in thick green forests.

I know I did.

The Pitons were the opening shot of the film ‘Muppets Treasure Island’ which was one of my absolute favourite films as a child.

Well, we were about to stay in a villa that was located in between the two Pitons.

What is Patreon? you may ask. Well, Patreon is a platform where I upload exclusive content. By paying a small fee per month, you will gain access to loads of content.

It was a big decision for me to set this up but after careful consideration I felt it was the right thing to do. It allows me to be more creative and more honest, sharing stories I would never tell otherwise.

It also allows me to start earning from content creation. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you will know I don’t do create content for the money. I write because I love it! But earning a small income from what I’m passionate about has its benefits. It allows me to travel more and put more effort into my work. I can actually justify spending countless hours planning content!
