been tasked with travelling to the Caribbean (St Lucia and Tobago) with British Airways as part of the Time Out ‘Experience The Caribbean‘ bloggers campaign. And seriously….5 days in the Caribbean – what were we gonna do, turn it down?!

Flying from Gatwick we landed in St Lucia just 24 hours ago. Straight off the plane we hopped into a chopper (You may now call us Bond) and flew up to the North part of the island. After a brief stop at Castries Market, where we  loaded up on some Banana Ketchup to bring home – here’s hoping it’s good – we headed to our hotel, Landings and checked into our PAD.

The PAD is a two room bungalow with kitchen, walk-in wardrobe, patio that leads to the beach and private hot-tub. CHA-CHING. A quick dip and we were off to the St Lucia Jazz and Art festival where we even caught a jazz version of Pharrell’s Happy.  Set on Pigeon Island it’s quite something sitting amongst the palm trees, sipping a rum and red bull with the sea in the background.

Dinner on day one was at The Body Holiday, a wellness resort which even has a wine tasting room and many restaurants including  one that offers an 8 course tasting menu with matching wines – our kind of wellness.

So far, so good! Stay tuned for the next update or keep an eye on the Time Out live feed.
