My first trip to SVG was memorable in so many ways. I flew from Barbados on a private charter into the biggest island, St. Vincent, and was soon on the tiny ferry to Young Island for a relaxing few days on this private island in a hilltop room with my own pool. Then it was down to the port to catch the ferry to Bequia where I spent my time driving round this charming and unspoilt island on its windy, narrow roads. Next, a local fishing boat to Mustique, and I was whisked off to Cotton House for a stay of complete luxury. Last stop was Tamarind Beach Hotel in Canouan – they even sent a plane to collect me! After a few days reading, watching the tortoises and enjoying the bay it was sadly time for the ferry to Union Island to catch the flight back. An amazing 10 days!! Mark Fitch, Tropic Breeze
