"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water."

Everything in Trinidad seemed too perfect... so we weren't really surprised when trouble awaited us at the airport. Since for the past month I was travelling with my whole kite equipment; I had 3 luggages, but I thought I would just give one to Asia, and we would be all set to go. Turns out you can only check in one luggage with LIAT airlines, believe me fitting my kite into already full backpack, and attaching my kiteboard to it so it resembles one luggage was almost impossible, but somehow we managed, and we made it to the plane last minute.

After a layover in Antigua, we finally arrived in St. Kitts. The problem with Caribbean island is that there are no hostels due to lack of backpackers. We definitely didn't fit among happy honeymooners, retired Americans, and Europeans on luxury vacations. We managed to find a decently priced posada for that one night before starting our diving cruise.

The moment we stepped on the boat, our way of travelling changed. Suddenly we were not backpacking anymore, we were on luxury vacation! Real luxury vacation!

6 days on a great boat, with delicious food, and open bar :) We were the youngest people on the boat, but the crowd was so much fun! We shared our meals with two hilarious men - an American psychiatrist and French-Canadian lawyer. They made that week so much more fun!!
And the Caribbean Explorer crew was amazing as well!

Of course we didn't go there to lie on the deck all day. We did 5 dives every day!!! 4 amazing day dives and a night dive every evening going from one location to another in the area of St. Kitts, Saba and Statia!

We saw lobsters, crabs, eagle rays, baby sharks, frogfish, turtles, octopus, seahorses, murrays, and my all time favorite - trunkfish!
We both love love love underwater world, and had the most fantastic time!
