Not only was Camille Guaty
the reason I was on the island of St Lucia (Camille Guaty became Camille Kaye this weekend), but she also gave us the incredible idea to take a helicopter ride to the airport!
Rather than squeeze into a sweaty, odd-smelling cab for an hour long ride with a crazy St Lucian driver, who BTW would make sure to keep just inches between the car in front of us, many times with another car just inches behind us – barely making each winding turn on roads still stricken by the last hurricane, we left the island in style…Camille Guaty style. We choppered it outta there.
and I forked over $145 each (the cab was 100 bucks) to take a 15 minute helicopter ride and went 14 miles over and out. We saw the tallest mountain on the island, the marijuana plantations, and listened to the stories of our pilot who quite possibly had the most extensive and personal knowledge of the island’s “growth” patterns of anyone we’d met…

Embrace the Moment: Anytime someone gives you the opportunity to travel out of the ordinary… be it chopper, horse or seaplane, I say find a way and jump on it!
