Exploring Saint Lucia

I have travelled to a handful of places but none as comfortable as Saint Lucia. Myself and two friends rented a vehicle and stayed in airbnbs while we travelled around the west coast of the island, exploring small villages, beaches and snorkelling every day. I'm always sad to leave a place when I'm on vacation, to return to my normal life, and I think leaving Saint Lucia was one of the most difficult returns home. I don't know if it's that the timing of the trip was giving me exactly what I needed (a break from a toxic day-to-day I was currently living) or if it was just tied up in how wonderful the place and people are. I still think about this island and all the people (and animals) we met while there and miss it. I would go back in half a heartbeat!
