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.
