    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!

    ... we will take a walk in one of their parks. We start walking and you get a feeling you are walking in a rain forest. Lots of different kind of trees with limbs hanging down and small and large bushes, and some with flowers. As we are walking we hear all kinds of birds chirping and it feels very peaceful.
    Our next stop is the estuary boardwalk. , The boardwalk stretches on and ...

    ... with what I can only imagine are stunning views of the bush. But first we need to rest. The heat is intense and we need a water break. We sit ourselves down on the lower slope of the hill, overlooking the clearing out onto the White Imfolozi River, this is a special place. Within a few minutes, the sky turns black and thunder begins to rumble, quickly closing in. Looks like we are going to get wet! We unpack our rain gear and start to prepare for a downpour. 'Elephant!' ...

    ... lobby to leave to get on board with Shark Zone. I travelled to False Bay which is located just out of Cape Town as Shark Zone dock off from where they had a last shark sighting. The travel was defiantly worth it as when I got there we departed straight after we got the safety policy talk. It was definitely needed with what I was about to get into the water with. When we got to the spot where I’d be diving as the staff from Shark Zone were chumming up the ...

    ... the 3rd one away. Axel chased Scrub Hare along road. Got back to camp around 6.30. Got fire going, Axel laughed at me starting fire without fire lighters! He didn't give me time to prove myself. Then used Briquettes. Axel cooked chicken on the Braii (South African BBQ but over coals) (in oven first then on grill which looked like a small bed frame!), had potatoes in foil and Lynn made salad. Very nice. Muffins for ...
