Stunning photo isn’t it?

This was shot on the south end of St. Kitts, looking across the narrows to the exotic island of Nevis. You wish you were sitting on that dock right this very second don’t you? I know, me too. Feet dangling off the dock, the warm waters of the Caribbean massaging your toes, belly full of rum punch from Reggae Beach Bar and not a single worry in the world. This is what I call…”The Life”.

In 19 days I’m going to do my best to take you, and all the Castaways, to the beautiful island of St. Kitts. In 19 days your favorite bald Caribbean travel blogger will bounce from Ft. Myers RSW airport, to Miami MIA airport, then will touch down on the asphalt pavement of SKB, St. Kitts.

In 19 days the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & Casino will host my stay as part of the Marriott Paradise Beach Blogger contest that you guys helped me win a couple months ago. I wouldn’t be going on this trip if it wasn’t for you Castaways, so I’m going to do everything I can to make you feel as if you were there with me. In fact, starting on the 16th of this month, the Marriott will be putting up a page where you guys can vote on the property and island activities that I’ll do.

Please, no facials at the spa people.

In 19 days I’m going to try and find this little dock that sits in a gentle lee side bay, and firmly place my backside on its salty wooden surface. I too want to gaze out over the sea towards Nevis with nothing but a cool breeze on my back, a belly full of rum and not a care in the world.

19 days….but who’s counting.

    Fabian, I did think that was a barrel of rum, but didn’t want to make a mention of it. I wanted people’s imagination fill that gap in. Like minded souls!

    Chris, I’m going to be climbing one of those volcanoes! Let’s hope she doesn’t blow! Cheers!
