Checkpoint Charlie

The hotel was surprisingly dated but it was ok for a night. The next day we were on time to our checkpoint, which we were really happy we did, as the queue was really long. It felt like being in the military as the security personal kept shouting out orders to the passengers. There was even an area which we had to slowly walk thru, two and two, as a trained dog sniffed diagonally across the path we had just walked. Coming from Sweden, this was quite an experience.

The flight over to Grenada went really smooth, as we got closer to the Windward islands the view over the ocean got more and more amazing.

Touch down at Maurice Bishop International Airport, signaled the begining of our fantastic 7 week vacation as the pilot informed us that it was +30 degrees celcius. The feeling as we stepped off the plane and into the hot humid Grenadian climate can only be described as epic, we could actually feel the heat soaking into our clothes and skin, this is the only way i can describe the feeling coming from -14 degrees celcius in Sundsvall to this. We were dramatically taken down to earth again when we realised that our luggage was not on our flight and infact still in Miami. We had to file a delayed baggage report with the customer services which began a 3 day long hunt for our bags… We took a taxi from the airport to our Airbnb at 01 RSR Apartments, across from the Port Luis Marina. As usual the driver didn’t have any change so the fare was 30 US. We were shown to our little apartment. The apartment was very basic but fine for the next 4 days. The host had placed a bottle of water in the fridge for us which was very kind. We informed her of our delayed baggage and that we had given her contact details to AA, which was fine with her. Once we were settled in, we made our way to the nearest grocery store, Foodland, for the essentials.
