We made it to Saint Lucia! And let me just say this island does not disappoint. Saint Lucia is located between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It's actually the only country in the world named after a woman.
For those of you who don't know, we are in Saint Lucia to volunteer at a child advocacy home. We will be here for a month. On this trip Katie Schmid and Kelly Schmid came with me to do volunteer work. I met Katie two years ago when living in Miami, and since then Katie has been one of my best friends! Before this trip I had never met Kelly, Katie's sister, but the three of us are a great combination.
This is actually not my first time in the Caribbean, I went to the British Virgin Islands when I was younger with my family. But this is my first time in Saint Lucia. We arrived last Monday, and have been settling down and getting everything sorted out before we start work next Monday. We seriously lucked out on the location; we live right next to the beach. The ocean water is crystal clear.
Tomorrow we start work, and we are all so excited to meet the children. The girls and I have planned some exciting activities and excursions to explore the island with them.
Yesterday, we went snorkeling and kayaking in Marigot Bay. So keep an eye out for a new blog post filled with underwater pictures. You can also follow my Instagram account @nicolechinuntdet, where I am constantly updating with pictures during this trip. Till then I hope you enjoy these photos.
