Desperate times call for desperate measures. Even though this winter started off mild, it ended with a vengeance.
Pooling airline miles and American Express points, I cobbled together a four night / four day trip to Nevis. I know I could have searched the Internet for a “deal” to go somewhere warm. But this is where we wanted to go.
We have been to Nevis before. My husband and I first went there in 1998 and stayed at a lovely place called Nisbet Plantation. Nisbet was our destination on this trip (and many before…) too.
There are a lot of things to do on Nevis. The Botanical Gardens are beautiful. You can hike Nevis Peak (an inactive volcano) with a guide or dip into the restorative mineral baths in downtown Charlestown.
This time, Emily and I did not leave the Nisbet “campus” once. The path from our room to the beach was about the only one we could manage. The staff (Angela, Violet, Roslyn, Patterson, Lendora, Glendina, Derrick and Dan) took EXCELLENT care of us, as always.
