      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!

      ... between crocs and a hippo! Oblivious to the tension, danger and adrenaline our group is submerged in, is a turtle slowly making his way up the sand bank from his leisurely bath in the pool we are so carefully trying to sneak past. Every splash, ripple and rain drop grabs my attention. I feel like I have gained 20/20 vision and dog sharp hearing. My senses are fully awake and stimulated to an extent I have never experienced in my life, I am alive! My fight or flight ...

      ... the birds was a different matter. However I did spot a warbler in a colony of weaver birds, and witnessed a changeover of brooding - identified as a lifer - Lesser Swamp Warbler, very similar to our European Reed Warbler.

      Mike completed booking formalities for the afternoon boat trip on the estuary and we then headed off to the eastern side of the iSimangaliso reserve which we had visited on previous trips. ...
