There are several things worth seeing while visiting St. Lucia. Here
are a few examples:
Pigeon Island: This protected National Park is of major
archaeological and historical value. There is also a small museum,
worth a visit. Fort Rodney is located on the smaller of the two
hills. Climbing the hill you are rewarded with a wide view. Pigeon
Island is the place where the yearly Jazz Festival is held in May.
Gros Islet: This quiet fishing village undergoes a
metamorphosis each Friday evening when a vast street dance party
takes place. A spectacle not to be missed for those who want to
experience the true St. Lucian atmosphere.
Vieux Fort: This small town has a Saturday market with a
colourful fish seller at the small beach. It has some supermarkets,
shops and banks. Many bananas are shipped from here. North of Vieux
Fort there are long sandy beaches, however parts have been washed
Maria Islands (close to Vieux Fort): This protected National
Park can only be visited with a guide. It is not accessible to the
public between May 15th and July 31st (bird breeding season). Two
endemic reptiles live on this little island: the colourful lizard
and the rare but small harmless Kouwes snake.

Have you ever experienced that your plane has been
overbooked? Maybe you have been one of many left behind and had to
wait for a later flight?
Next year the European Union (EU) will try to minimise airplanes
overbooking by passing on a new legislation protecting the
passengers' rights at EU airports.
According to EU, roughly a quarter of a million air passengers each
year get a bad surprise at EU airports when checking-in for their
By passing this legislation EU wants airlines to reduce the
frequency of over booking and denying passengers boarding against
To make this happen airlines have to among other things pay a
compensation when delays (over five hours) and overbooking happens.
The size of the compensation (ranges from Euro 250- 600) depends
on how long the delay is and how long your flight takes.
In addition to financial compensation, passengers denied boarding
would continue to enjoy rights as meals, refreshments and hotel
accommodation if necessary.
Passengers will also have the choice between refund of their
ticket and an alternative flight. The new legislation should enter
into force in 2005.
