St Kitts

Trains leave Needsmust station and passengers are soon immersed in the landscape of fields of sugar cane. There are views of the Atlantic coast, nearby islands, and local life in equal measure. Besides sugar cane there are pineapples, bananas, and papayas in the fields. At La Valle Station, passengers transfer from the train to sightseeing buses and complete the circle tour on the Island Main Road back to Basseterre.

If buses and trains aren’t enough then take a taxi and get chatting with the locals. The driver from the airport to my hotel was Christian Girl. Another driver was called Two Point, who hosts a radio show on 106.9FM between 10pm and 2am most nights. He is a political activist and dislikes the Prime Minister of 17 years Dr Denzil Douglas. The PM is disliked by everyone according to Two Point, yet he keeps being re-elected. Two Point also told me that the opposition is not allowed to broadcast on the TV and radio.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
