Just returned from our trip to Montserrat. Very beautful island. The ferry trip over can be of some difficulty for those who have not spent any time at sea. (minor seasickness by some tourists when we did go, none for us though.) This is a British colony, as such the flavour and impact on the island is quite evident. People are super friendly and outgoing, we had probably the best tour guide on the island with a great sense of humour and very informative. The volcano was the highlight of course. It was really awe inspiring, the devastation was immense and showed how really insignificant we little humans really are, it was still smoking when we were there, the smell of sulphur still hangs in the air. Hundreds of burned out homes still remain in the exclusion zone, really erie sight. Very expensive island, Lucky Charms double box was $75 EC. Immigration folks are very through though, they retained my Bic lighter on my return. We are not planning on returning as there is really not alot to do after a one day tour. Strongly suggest it for a once in a lifetime excursion to see how nast Mother Nature can be. No regrets.
