have arrived here for a 24-hour stopover while on our Trans-Atlantic
yacht race (more on this in the next blog). With such little
time to experience St. Helena, we attempted a cultural blitz!
Tungi shots were downed, coffee slurped, old-fashioned letters
to Mom written, stamped and loaded onto the mail ship, and
Without a doubt, Jacob's Ladder was a special treat and
my favourite part of the stop. The Ladder was named after
a mythical ladder to heaven described in the book of Genesis
- but the real version on St. Helena just leads up to a
nice view. Does that qualify as irony? In any case, I suppose
if you dehydrated yourself thoroughly before climbing, you
could induce a more spiritual journey.
much to report, but I just wanted to be the first to write
about St. Helena on Travelblog! I'm just a little disappointed
I couldn't stay longer on this fabulous and friendly island.
Oh, and by the way, there were once 700 steps, but Step
#1 got covered up during repairs.
