Here’s another island I wouldn’t mind running off to…
Ten years ago Montserrat was devestated by volcanic eruption. In both 1995 and 1997, the
Soufriere Hills volcano
buried a huge portion of this tiny Caribbean island, including the capital, Plymouth. And this was all after Hurricane
Hugo had already dealt a blow in the late 1980’s. With all the bad weather and natural disasters happening elsewhere
these days, Montserrat can breath a little easier for now, and welcome tourists back. A new airport opened in July and
the island is officially welcoming folks to visit again, even if there is still much construction to be done.
Budget Travel mentioned Montserrat in its October issue, and this past Sunday the NYT ran a
piece featuring places to stay and things to do.
