St. Lucia’s La Haut Plantation: Part II

After breakfast the mistiness persisted as I read my book. I was distracted only by the hummingbirds frolicking in the bougainvilleas and by the happy chattering of the room maids. The manager offered me the services of the plantation driver to get me to the airport, where my suitcase could clear customs only with my presence. The driver, Hugh Paul, made the journey pass quickly – we talked about West Indies cricket, Arsenal Football Club, and the devastating effect of the previous year’s hurricane on the banana crop. When we arrived at the...

St. Lucia’s La Haut Plantation: Part I

The road curved up and over the forested mountain sides. Heavy rain, pot holes, and a complete lack of lighting meant the night time journey of 40km from the airport to La Haut plantation lasted 1.5 hours. I was in St. Lucia, but my suitcase was still in Barbados. Damn! Eventually the taxi turned into what seemed in the darkness to be a huge bush. I then saw the white smile of the attendant who raised a metal barrier. He saluted me enthusiastically and pointed me towards the reception. I smiled for the first time in three hours. The unabashed...

Soufriere Sulphur Springs, St Lucia

Soufriere Sulphur Springs, St Lucia

Keeping up with all the Soufrieres in the Caribbean is not easy. There’s a La Soufriere in Guadeloupe and one in St Vincent. There are the Soufriere Hills in Montserrat and then there’s the well known Soufriere Sulphur Springs in St. Lucia, commonly referred to as a drive-in volcano. This is a slight misnomer, however, as visitors are only allowed to view the solfatara from afar as it sputters away in the distance. Apparently, the cautionary distance is due to an incident where a guide fell through the surface into the boiling...

For those who don’t know, 9rules is a social networking site that brings together the best of independent blogs, writing and readers on the Internet. While definitely not a travel site (at the moment I think there are only two in their travel section), 9rules had added us as one of their partner sites. It is a proud day for ITKT. I am really excited to be part of the new 9rules team and hopefully offering travel inspiration to experienced travelers and the guy who has yet to make it beyond the confines of his own front. Of course, ITKT...

An Ode to Shirley of St. Lucia

Posted by on 9:58 am in Announcements, St Lucia, World | 2 comments

St. Lucia was a long way from home and featured a long lay-over in Montego Bay before a winding two-hour bus ride through tropical rainforests and banana trees to the northern part of the island and our destination. It was about a twenty-hour process from start to finish. However, my stay at Sandals was wonderful. Our suite sat on a bluff overlooking elegant palm trees and a peaceful Atlantic Ocean. Balmy breezes swept passed my bare feet while I sipped tropical drinks, the kind with a pineapple wedge. Later, I ate delicious chocolate-filled...
