I want to start off by saying I apologize for not being active and not posting this sooner! The past two months have been quite ludicrous! And that is an UNDERSTATEMENT! I ended up getting the flu and I mean the REAL DEAL FLU! I was away on a business trip, only to soon find myself in a hospital. Not to mention, I ended up losing over 10 pounds. It is one thing being sick, but being away from home and having the real flu; it was the worst experience of my life.
I just wanted to share a quick update about me, but enough about that…
We are on to St. Lucia!
Have you ever heard the saying?
“If you’ve been to one island, you’ve been to them all”
It is one of the most bogus statements that I’ve heard and the worst part about it is that I hear it all the time. How can one make a statement like that without experiencing it? Just like no person is the same; no island is the same. From the food, to the scenery, to the people, and etc. Each island is unique in its own way and the island of St. Lucia stands out like no other.
Our ship was docked in St. Lucia a bit longer than the other ports, but there was much to do in so little time! Being in port on Christmas Day, we wanted to make sure that we were able to attend a Christmas Day service in one of the churches. We were so blessed to have found this church!
After the church service, we did not have any excursions planned, but we wanted to explore the island. We stumbled upon an amazing driver named, Eli, who gave us an AMAZING tour of the island. I’ll let the pictures do the talking…
St. Lucia is drop-dead gorgeous. The Pitons are absolutely out of this world. They look like they have no place in the Caribbean. If you don’t have this place on your bucket list, you better put it right on. From The Pitons, to the hot springs, to the scenery; countless times I thought to myself, “is this place real?” The views are straight out from a movie. I have never seen views like this in my life and it is truly remarkable to have been able to experience it with Jesci and my parents, especially on Christmas Day. It was a Christmas that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
