    So many cute kittens here! Shared a room with 9 other girls, the air con in our room would short circuit the whole block so spent 10 days getting drunk just so I could pass out in the heat of that room haha! The bar was excellent, I learned to really hate Smirnoff ice and love savanna cider! I got pretty good at fusball, or so I thought, and was first on the microphone for karaoke on night 1!

    What to expect in a third world country

    With a group of 30+ young travelers the accommodation was suited to our travelling needs (sufficient dorms, common area for eating- meetings etc, and of course a great pool and bar!) sure the dorms were not in the best state for hygiene (cleanliness) or security (door locks), and most nights those who waited too long would miss out on running water to shower, but for a first time visiting a third world country with a big volunteer group this is what I expected. The staff at BIBS were all very friendly and by the end of our stay we were saddened to leave the community we had grown so fond of. If I was to ever return to Saint Lucia I wouldn't hesitate to stay at BIB's again and would recommend it for anyone else travelling there (would also recommend it be with a group of people however) However the area I thought was quite safe close to shops and plenty of restaurants. Great stay!

    Well after a long trip here George and I made it to Bib's international hostel where we have spent the last week with VESA on our first program. With apologies on the infrequency of these entries, we are putting up photos at random times so please do keep checking!

    This first week has been so amazing, after meeting the group of 74 …

    ... the left edge of lane is marked with a yellow line and then there is probably half a lane width to edge of road. If someone notices another car coming up behind them then they will move over the yellow line to let them pass. As it's less than a lane width, the passing car is still over the centre line. James overtook on crests and bends, just had to hope no one was doing the same thing in the other direction!!! Once a car is passed they put their hazard lights in to thank ...

    ... of Dung Beetles busily rolling balls of freshly laid poo or flying all over the place to find new poo, totally fascinating! Through another another section of the park we had more sightings of the fantastic wildlife to be found here. The list was long, so to keep it short we saw some Bush Buck, Water Buck, Vervet monkeys, Zebra and Buffalo and of course more Dung Beetles zooming ...

    ... works closely and in cooperation with cash strapped government wildlife agencies, national parks and game reserves to enhance conservation efforts by doing a much of the grunt work that it requires. We volunteered with Wildlife ACT to learn first hand how animals (such as the African wild dog) are monitored, tracked and even counted on a daily basis.

    We quickly learned that conservation work is not as glamorous as it might sound. There ...
