Hi all,
This will have to be a short message I'm afraid and I'll post a much longer entry when the chance presents itself. Delphine and I arrived safe and sound in Antigua (love British Airways after years of Easyjet and Ryanair!). The place we're staying in English Harbour, next to Nelson's Dockyard is fine and the person running it is lovely. We're lucky to experience the cooling breeze of Hurricane Egor at the moment, which is about 600 miles south east (everyone talks about the hurricane weather here), otherwise we would be dying of heatstroke, the first few days here were very hot and sticky. The sea is like a bath and the beaches are like any photograph you've ever seen of the Caribbean - stunning! We've travelled round by local buses, which have been fun, efficient and very....local.
We're travelling to Guadeloupe on Monday to share a beach hut with Delphine's parents for a week. Hopefully there we'll be able to add more detail to our diary.

All in all, this has been a very pleasant introduction to our travels but has also provided its own share of disorientation and discoveries, which has warmed and limbered up our travelling cognitive muscles, making us look forward to our next destination.

All the best.

Chers tous,
Je ne vais pas traduire point par point mais suis heureuse de vous dire que tout va tres bien! Le vol etait tres agreable et notre chambre dans un petit hotel local est tres bien. Ventilateur oblige, meme la nuit, nous sommes tres heureux d'etre ventiles par les vents venant de l'ouragan Egor a 6oo km de la. La chaleur est extreme et les moustiques en croisade pour nous devorer mais nous tenons le coup et voyageons en bus, tres tres couleur locale...! Les plages sont comme sur des cartes postales mais les vagues sont hautes!!!! Nous partons lundi pour la Guadeloupe ou mes parents nous rejoignent pour une semaine et ensuite une semaine en Dominique. Nous ecrirons plus longuement des que possible. A tres bientot!!!! Bisousssssss
