SAnParis, my fiance and I are looking into booking a flight and tour through Carib-World Travel to Montserrat while we are on our holiday/wedding on Antigua. We will also be there in February and are planning to do this Montserrat trip on a Tues. or Thurs., so we can visit the observatory. My fiance was not too sure if he wanted to go or not, so I sat him down and made him read your trip report. So, I just wanted to thank you for your report which has in turn given me the chance to get to Monserrat, even if for only a day, to check it out for ourselves. I hope your return trip is fabulous! Thanks again, Michele

MS - When might you be there in Feb. ? We will be there the 12th-20th (I think). If you have the chance, give David Lea a call. For $50 (I think) he'll give you not only the Observatory tour, but the whole island as well. I would try to prepare you for it but it is just unlike anything you have probably ever seen. Best of luck to your future together & let me know what you think after your trip. Enjoy !

Just an FYI - Gingerbread Hill was mentioned in "Budget Travel" this month as one of the best places you can stay for under $100/night.

SAnParis, we will be in Antigua from Feb.10-24. Thanks for the suggestion of David Lea. Do you have his contact info.? I was just going to book through Carib-world, but I will ask who their guide is first maybe. If it is not David, then maybe I should give him a call and try to set it up with him. Thanks again, Michele

Anytime, hopefully this taste of MOntserrat will encourage further exploration.

SAnParis, have you read about Montserrat acting up again? The island is on a level 4 alert right now. Please be careful and take care!

Since our favorite little island, Montserrat has been mentioned, I thought it an appropriate time to revive some posts.

No, not as of right now. We had planned to be there over the St. Patty's fete but due to my employment situation (I don't have one) it will likely wait until Fall/Winter. I'll keep you informed. *Used to be SAnParis

I just clicked on your new name in another thread to see who this was-- and I thought it might be you!

I'm sorry about your job situation and hope things get better. It must be tough. Good luck!

It's not so bad, I've had the chance to spend a year w/my two small kids (almost 6 & 3). I would have missed a lot had I been working. We'll get back there soon enough (Fall or Spring). But I am in the Mortgage industry so it IS slim pickings out there right now. Thanks for your good wishes.
