I think it is time to bring you one more Caribbean post, I am tired of winter posts ;)
One of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean is Saint Kitts or also called Saint Christopher, it has volcanic peaks with lush green forests and endless sugar cane fields, it offers some of the Caribbean's more dramatic panoramas.
We arrived with PO cruises to the charming capital Basseterre that features many historic buildings. The island has about 45,000 inhabitants and Basseterre is the largest town with 15,500.
Let me show you some beautiful views of the island, one of the good things of being in a balcony room on the deck 15 is that I could make panoramic pictures that they look like aerial photos.
So we had to take different transport and we opted for a Chiva bus very typical from Central and South America, many Chivas were parked at the port and we got a day trip that took us to the main sites of the island and to the beach,in addition all the drinks were included which was great :D
|You can see the buses parked close to our ship|

|Nobody explained why the bottles were hanging of the tree, anyone know it?|
It represents the old tobacco and 250 year old sugar and rum industry.
Brimstone Hill - UNESCO World Heritage SiteThe most important historical site on the island is a massive fortress dated from 1690, situated on a volcanic outcrop, 243m above sea level and overlooks the west coast.
Home of Caribelle Batik, owned and Managed by successive Earls of Romney over the centuries, this is a beautiful tour of the Historic Manor and its pristine gardens.
This is a tropical Paradise and home of a 400 year old Samam Tree
