"I'll be your tour guide today and my name is Dijon, and I'm hot and spicy like the mustard!" The people of St. Kitts are humorous, laid back, vivacious and hospitable and it's no surprise when you look at the beautiful landscape that they wake up to everyday. Sure there was poverty (including the mangy cats I took to feeding on our resort) but overall it was a lovely place full of intriguing history (discovered by explorer Christopher Columbus, hence the island's name of St. Christopher, nicknamed St. Kitts), exciting adventures (including our 5 hour hike to Mount Liamuiga to see the inactive volcano) and local hot-spots (like Sunshine's Bar & Grill where I had some of the freshest veggie food imaginable!)
I kept my cell phone and laptop turned off all week, read two books, ran (and napped) on the beach and slow danced to live music (on a different beach), all while having fun with fashion. Here are my vacation outfits, which all somehow managed to fit into one suitcase.
