Travel Blogs from Trois-Ilets

However, looking for new destinations following our thwarted attempt to make it to St Lucia, we decided to give it a try. Indeed, there were more shops, eateries and upmarket resorts …

Met my driver and headed to the sound check at 10:00 prompt. Sang At Last which has good highs and lows.
