Q and I just returned from our honeymoon in St. Lucia last night. We loved St. Lucia so much that neither one of us wanted to leave there!! That island is absolutely beautiful! We had so much fun, did so many things, made new friends, and totally fell in love with the people there! It was hard to get used to driving on the left side of the road...and the crazy driving there! We thought we were going to die at least 3 times on our way from the airport to the resort! The only speed limit sign we saw was a hand painted sign that simply said, "Slow Down." hahaha We did survive though!! We stayed in an awesome rondoval casita, complete with outdoor shower, hot tub, pool with waterfall, hamock, fully stocked bar, beautiful room, huge tub, great shower, big flat screen tv....the works! We even had a butler(actually 2...1 on each shift.) We enjoyed a jeep safari tour around the island and through the rainforest, went whale/dolphin watching, a heliocopter ride/mini tour, and shopping! We ate at several different places within our resort, in another resort, and in town once! We also had a candel light dinner on the beach! We had plenty of time to relax on the beach, at the pool, and in our room. One night they had a big bbq. There was lots of yummy food, performers, music, and limbo...which of course I participated in!! On Christmas Day, we relaxed at the spa:) Q and I had a couples massage. Then Q had a man facial, and I did a moroccan mud wrap:) It was wonderful!!!!
We left there with a new appreciation for life and everything that we have! The people there have so little. Many don't even have running water in their homes. Yet everyone there is so happy! They are always smiling and making others smile! They are just high on life there! We have decided to be more like them. Here, we have absolutely NO reason to be discontent or unhappy....EVER! They have a motto over there: "No pressure, no problem!" We are going to live by that motto from now on as best as we can! We seriously do not need to stress over so many unimportant things in life! Those people are living proof that true happiness does not come from earthly possessions. It truely does come from within!!
We both love that place so much that we are most definitely going to visit there again..and again..and again, whenever we can!! We may even adopt a child from St. Lucia!
Ok, so, anyway, I posted lots of pics on Facebook! Enjoy!
