st vincent & the grenadines

“I grew up in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. My mother died at 34 when I was only 13 so I raised my siblings and myself. But my mother had prepared me well. I had to go out and do everything, and sometimes I thought that she was cruel, but I guess she knew she was leaving us so she prepared me to take over. Now I’m basically having fun and enjoying life because I never had any usual teenage years.”

Grenadines

Me and the boyfriend are picking holiday destinations, cause we get a shitton of time off from work. We’ve kinda narrowed it down to Samoa, Vietnam, or a Caribbean place (probably St Vincent and the Grenadines). 

Has anyone been to any of these? Or does anyone have any suggestions for different places? Ideally we’re looking for non-european places that are a bit less touristy (eg, limited amount of sprawling resorts).

Prince Harry will make an official visit to the Caribbean in the late autumn, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen. HRH will visit Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
