Excitement swirled around my brain when I was scheduled for a press trip to St. Kitts, arranged by St. Kitts Marriott Resort and Diamond PR. I had never been to St. Kitts, didn't know anybody who had but for some reason, I longed to go. Something about this tiny Eastern Caribbean island, the smallest country in the Western Hemisphere, pulled me to it and I had no intentions of resisting. I wasn't shocked that it was love at first sight. I loved the lush landscape, dotted with trees, flowers and abundant vegetation (and scampering monkeys) everywhere I looked.
I loved the rolling hills and gentle slopes, topped by the highest point at 3792 feet on Mt. Liamuiga.
I loved the powdery beaches, blessed with the warm waves of the Caribbean Sea and framed by mountain peaks.
