Nicholas and Katherine Welch didn’t have a good honeymoon. Actually, that may be something of an understatement. It was dreadful.
The Welches thought they’d done everything right. They visited St. Lucia, which is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the Caribbean. It’s also a gorgeous island. And they booked through a reputable all-inclusive resort, Sandals.
Today’s adventure took us deep into the St. Lucian rainforest, where we caught a ride up the Rainforest Aerial Tram.
“Where are the skis?” asked my five-year-old son, Iden, who talks about the Vail trip as if it happened yesterday.

Kase and her husband booked a week at the resort and another week at a Sandals property in Antigua, despite some misgivings. The online ratings were mixed, but another couple they knew had recommended the hotels.
