The month of July marks the beginning of our peak summer travel period – and if you have not already heard, this month we will also be adding new routes to our schedule (for more details, visit liat.com), improving connections and frequencies between key markets.
Whether the Caribbean is your home or you are a vacationer skipping the traffic jams of European or North American cities, there is plenty to do in LIAT’s 17 exciting destinations. Summertime brings the chance to enjoy activities including turtle-watching tours – camp overnight on the beach and help measure leatherback turtles and count their eggs. Depending on your destination, you might also experience rain showers, bringing cool respite and lush vegetation.
As I have travelled around our network over the past year, I have fallen in love with each country I visited. Two such destinations are the French island of Guadeloupe, and Guyana in South America. Both are featured in this issue of ZiNG – and if you have not yet explored them, I hope you will be inspired to do so by the stories in this magazine. Our insider’s guide to Georgetown reveals the best places to stay, eat, lime and shop, while our special photo story brings the music, food and beaches of Guadeloupe vividly to life.
As you flip through these pages, you’ll also learn how to build your dream home; discover top new Caribbean fashion designers; read fascinating stories about the origins of our favourite foods; hear from Barbadian singer Toni Norville about her life and influences; plus lots more.
Stay sunny, stay smiling and, as always, live life to the full.
