Why St Lucia is the best winter escape
When winter comes round, everyday life can become a little frustrating. You have to walk slowly over icy ground in case of falling, your car needs defrosted and the neighbors kids might even try to throw snowballs at you. During these times, you might wonder whether winter is worth tolerating for yet another year or should you do something about it.
St Lucia is a stunning island, naturally decorated with luscious jungles, tall peaks and a hint of West Indian magic.
