CAR­IB­BEAN

Saint Lu­cia is one of those places where you have to con­tin­u­ally pinch your­self to see if you’re dream­ing. I went with a group of strangers, but we be­came close by the end. How can you not fos­ter friend­ships when shar­ing fresh guava and co­conut wa­ter from the side of the road, strik­ing yoga poses in front of pic­turesque water­falls, paint­ing min­eral-rich mud on one an­other in the world’s only drive-in vol­cano and stop­ping traf­fic to get the per­fect pic­ture on the streets of a quaint colour­ful vil­lage? It’s an idyl­lic hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion be­cause the only gift bet­ter than par­adise is new pals.

What’s more sooth­ing than the sounds of a wa­ter­fall? Here I am, sun-kissed and blissed out at Di­a­mond Falls.
