Happy Friday, friends! I wanted to share a little bit of my travel diary from yesterday - it was an exhausting day (woke up at 3 a.m. and didn't go to bed until midnight) but I finally made it to St. Lucia! Let's start with my travel outfit...
I woke up at 3 a.m. yesterday, left my house by 4 a.m. and departed from Charlotte Douglas airport at 6 a.m. I am not a morning person, and I was scared to death I was going to sleep through all my alarms!!! (But I didn't haha.) From Charlotte, we flew to Atlanta, and from Atlanta to St. Lucia... I watched the movie "Martian" on the second plane ride, and it was such an amazing movie that I was crying (both sad and happy tears) while watching it. The people beside me had to think I was crazy!! But seriously if you haven't seen it, go watch it NOW.
Once we touched down in St. Lucia, we went through customs. The drive to our resort is about an hour through winding dirt roads, so we opted to take a helicopter ride (which takes about 15 minutes!). I've never been on a helicopter, and I was feeling pretty anxious before the trip. It's so loud that everyone has to wear headphones/headsets. Once we were up in the air, I calmed down and was simply in awe of the beauty of this island. There were a few scary moments though - at one point, the pilot headed straight towards the mountain (below), and pulled the helicopter up just in time not to run into it - when we had passed the peak, he dove into the valley. It felt like being on a roller coaster!
And we made it! For those wondering, we are staying at Anse Chastanet in Soufriere. I read a ton of reviews beforehand so I was prepared (it's a lot different than most beach hotels I'm used to!) but I'll be sharing a lot of info about the trip as the week goes on.
The best thing (so far), is definitely the view from the room. On one side you can see the ocean and palm trees, and on the other side you can see the tips of the Pitons - it is breathtaking.
Here are some close-ups of the bikini I wore yesterday and the cute tassel cover-up (which is a scarf but I tied as a sarong!).... enjoy!

Happy weekend, everyone!
