Flight 24

Gustavia – Argyle

After taking off from the picturesque tropical island of St. Bartholomew, I begin my journey to other Caribbean islands. The first of these is Saba, the smallest of the 6 Caribbean islands under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with its inactive volcano Mount Scenery, which at 887 m is also the highest peak in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is followed by Dutch St. Eustatius with its Quill volcano (601 m), St. Kitts and Nevis (a separate state) and Montserrat, an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. Its capital, Plymouth, had to be abandoned due to the catastrophic eruption of the Soufrière volcano in 1995, and the southern part of the island has been inaccessible since then. The next place on the list is the island nation of Antigua and Barbuda, which is a member of the Commonwealth, followed by Guadeloupe, an overseas department and overseas region of France, with its highest mountain, Mount Soufriére at 1 467 m. Next are the island state of the Dominican Commonwealth, the overseas department of France Martinique, the island ministry of Saint Lucia, the parliamentary republic of Barbados and finally, the last island state visited today, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, whose largest island, Saint Vincent, I am landing on.
