St. Lucia Recap

Well, it was back to reality today, the cruel harsh world of the frigid north. -21 first thing in the morning and a fierce wind that pierced my entire body all day. Not cool.

So on to something that already brings me warmth, and breathes a little life into this frozen vessel of a body.. recapping St. Lucia. We left on the Sunday, February 25th just before the GTA got a big dump of snow [hehe] so we were ecstatic about the getaway. Five hour flight, and upon arrival, 1 hour shuttle to the resort. After a ridiculous ride through the tight knit roads and the insane elevation changes, we make it to the resort, alive. From then on, 7 days in absolute paradise. Maxin an relaxin all week. Tons of good times. Returned to Toronto Sunday, March 4th and we both 100% certain that we'd much rather be back in St. Lucia, livin it up. ( for now atleast, until spring arrives. ;] )

Check some pics y'all!

The best time ever!

Some notes...

-We stayed at the luxurious, Sandals Regency St. Lucia Golf Resort and Spa. It was paradise.

-The sun in the West Indies cuts through SPF30 Sunblock at ease. We got scorched early, but no bad burns. So remember kids, re-apply every few hours or so..

-The breakfast buffet was probably the best thing about the food there. They had just massive amounts of fresh fresh foods. We loved it!
