Mermaid Island – St. Lucia!

Let me start off by saying that the beginning of this trip was rocky, due to flight issues with Air Canada. (see previous post)

None the less, once I had arrived in St. Lucia, everything started to look up. It was great. swift check in, greeted right away from my Air Canada rep who then escorted me to my transfer van. I stayed at an infamous five-star resort titled “The BodyHoliday”. The BodyHoliday is known for and considered an upscale resort. I say that because not only is it drop dead gorgeous, but the trip itself is expensive as hell and the resort stands out from most. I find this resort is great for people who are fitness addicts. The BodyHoliday has everything you can think of from tennis, to all water sports, to yoga, to morning  beach group runs, to 5k swimming, to beach volleyball, to dance lessons, to scuba diving lessons, to personal fitness and training lessons, to spas, to golf and golf lessons, it basically has everything a fitness junkie could ever dream of. I find the food to be very healthy. Which everyone who knows me, knows I’m far from being the healthy type. but what I appreciated about this resort is that they cater to almost everyone. they had plenty of options and were able to customize meals for vegetarians and vegans. I found myself requesting more salt and sugar a couple of times. But being that it was my birthday trip, I had overlooked that. lol

I decided to pre-check in online. When I finally arrived at Pearson airport, I was told that I also needed to check in at a kiosk station. I did. Then after printing my boarding pass and bag tag, I was told from an Air Canada representative to join a super long line that went around the corner of another airline. Really?, I thought the whole purpose of checking in online or at the kiosk was to avoid the line and go straight to luggage drop off, but okay. Nonetheless, I joined the line. After about 10 minutes of waiting in the never-ending line, another flight associates pulls me out of the line to join a much shorter one because I had already had my bag tags and boarding pass (just like i had thought to begin with). After dropping off my bags at the luggage drop off, I went through customs and was randomly selected for that machine body scan thing which I had no problem doing, the only thing metal on me was my extension hair clips which I’m sure the X-ray picked up. lmao.
