Uber blunder in Essex

Bit the bullet and ordered my first Uber ride in November 2014 when I was in London. It went very well but it was for a very short trip. The second one was in April 2015 and it was from stansted airport to a nearby b&b about 15 minutes away. I loved the fact that you know beforehand who will be picking you up, what the reg number of the car is and where the car is on a map.
Carriacou - the island surrounded by reefs

Carriacou - the island surrounded by reefs

View of Hillsborough from the hospital in Belair - Click to enlarge There are two public routes on and off the island. The Osprey ferry and the SVG flight. Now it seems to be an established fact that the ferry is a much more adventurous route meaning it is often a nausea inducing experience even for the more seasoned sea travellers. Anecdotally the trip to Carriacou is usually worse than the trip back.
Appeal for donations for Carriacou Animal Hospital

Appeal for donations for Carriacou Animal Hospital

Photo by CAH What a great experience. Lots of memories and and a moderate skin tan that will disappear quite quickly in this Welsh winter. Although there were a lot of nice relaxing moments on the beach there were also lots of animal care that we were involved with. The beautiful scenery of the island should not conceal the tremendous work Kathy, Shurlyn and all the people that are involved and help out with the Carriacou Animal Hospital (CAH).
Tobago Cays

Tobago Cays

A trip to a nearby island called the Tobago Cays . This was a bit of a longer trip. We set off early in the morning and took a tour of several islands in the Tobago Cays archipelago. It actually took us to the neigbouring country of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines but I don’t remember having to take our passports with us. The views of the islands was simply breathtaking.
White island

White island

A trip to a nearby island called the White Island. We took a quick boat ride to there and had a lovely BBQ, fresh lobster. Very tasty. One of the best things I remember is having a banter and getting pissed while standing waist-deep in crystal clear sea water. Will never forget this. The prominence in White Island.
First impressions

First impressions

The BA 777 at Gatwick Writing this at least a couple of days into my stay. The passport control people nearly didn’t let me in the country as they seem to pretend they didn’t know about Carriacou animal hospital and to top it off the donated medical supplies got seized by customs. With the great effort from Penny in Grenada we managed to get them back the following day which meant I missed the morning ferry to Carriacou .
Setting off

Setting off

Don’t think I have ever travelled with so much luggage. Besides my own stuff I will also bring over some consumables like surgical gloves, flea treatment and so on. Got some great plastic containers that are nice and waterproof. View of the airplane Those 4 boxes above was how I got everything from the WVS. I was a little worried about how I am going to get all the luggage from the long term car park, on the bus and then on the terminal.
