Hi guys, hope you are all well, if you are reading this and wondering why it's so backdated, well we're about a month behind thanks to lack of internet but we're doing our best to catch up! (just to let you know we're still safe and sound in Zambia 3-10-10)

So, we left Durban in the early hours and set off up the coast towards St Lucia. On …

Elephant Coast and the exciting Swaziland

A travel blog entry by rizandtash

After a successful stint in Nelspruit we decided to head of to the bottom of the elephant coast at Saint Lucia for a few days of beach relaxing. On route we spent a night in Swaziland - a relaxed little monachist country in the middle of south Africa. Getting there involved a border crossing over land, and being Australian, this was quite a novelty …

Day 4 St Lucia

... surprising animals become the most interesting! John did tick off an African Harrier Hawk - a lifer for him. A Lifer, in birdwatching terms, is a bird that is seen for the first time in your life. John has seen over 30 Lifers this trip.

Lunch at Ilala Weavers was excellent as usual, good food and good value. Ann and Gill picked up a few items, gifts, cards and curios. Shopping has to be done sometimes !

Weather up until now hadn't been too ...

    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!
