Liming On the Caribbean Island of St Kitts

Posted on February 27, 2013 by

From the religious enclaves of Israel, we’ve flown over oceans and continents to the Caribbean island of St Kitts – where time seems to have slowed down to a leisurely pace. Every where on the island, the warm breeze blows and the sound of lapping waves echo from the distance, people saunter on the beach where palm trees dance and sway. Life here is slow, relaxing, and most of all, stress free.

It’s been almost ten years since we’ve been back in the Caribbean and it couldn’t have come at a better time. The past few trips have found us cruising to Antarctica, zipping through the coldest reaches of Europe, and trekking through the backcountry of Israel — we’re now ready to kick back, swap our hiking boots for flipflops, and spend time on the beach – just liming (the Caribbean’s version of relaxing and hanging out). Indeed, liming is a work of art that we’ve come to master and nowhere else does it quite as well as the Caribbean.

But we’re here to explore and liming will just have to wait. Over the past few days, we’ve driven all over the island, drinking in stunning views from the Brimstone Fortress National Park, stumbling upon centuries-old petroglyphs, wandering around the capital of Basseterre and admiring its colonial buildings, and trekking in the rainforest.

For the rest of the week, there’s plenty of stuff awaiting. We’ll be hopping over to the neighboring island of Nevis, for a day of mountain biking and hiking as well as a road trip on 4×4 wheelers. Back on St Kitts, we’ll be doing a rum tour to learn about the island’s flavors, and boarding the scenic railway to see the isle from another point of view, before goofing around on ATVs around Port Zanté.

For an island of just 68 square miles, it packs quite a punch – and while our time here is packed to the brim with adventurous activities, we’ll be sure to do some liming here too, because that’s what life is about right?

We will be writing about St Kitts over the next few weeks. Meanwhile, be sure to leave us some travel tips!

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!| agate cameos bangle http://www.goldmemoriesforever.com

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!| foto nunti http://madvideo.ro/fotograf-de-nunta/
