a bit of this and that

What I learned

I say when I am traveling I am always working. My trip this month to St. Lucia was no exception. St. Lucia is my favorite Caribbean island for lots of reasons, mostly for the people, culture and mountainous terrain. It is not an island for the faint of heart! There are lots of steps in most resorts as they are hillside properties. And banisters were not invented in St. Lucia. So if one has mobility issues, I suggest a sand dune island. Pictures will follow another week.

Meanwhile, I will never transit Miami airport again, and I will strongly recommend none of my clients do so. That means flying Jet Blue or Delta. Getting to St. Lucia or most of the Caribbean does not require Miami airport.

The modern international airports are just huge! And going from domestic to international is the furthest. My friend and I find them most difficult to negotiate. So we reserve wheelchairs. There were either none available or not enough. In both directions I almost missed the plane. On the return going through customs there were at least 50 chairs, plus all the able body folks. There was no global entry. The custom security guard took over ten minutes per person! Our line was the slowest of slow! Never again.
