Spilling a drink all over a Passenger on my way back from St Lucia....

Sorry about the wait between my last post and this! I did go to Barbados, but as we only spend about 24 hours there and it ended up raining the whole time, there really wasn't much to write about! I got back, had a few days off, and repacked my suitcase ready for my trip to St Lucia.

My second trip to St Lucia was probably the trip I had been looking forward to the most this month when my roster came out. I had already been not too long ago, but this time, one of my very good friends from my training course was on it. I know, it seems like in every other post I seem to be writing about flying with someone from my training course. I must of had a lucky month. Unfortunately for me, I haven’t been quite so fortunate this month, and am flying with no-one familiar. Anyway, I was excited to be able to fly with someone that I had gotten along so well with, especially seeing as our destination was an all-inclusive resort! 

Luck must have been on our side because we were on the flight with the nicest Cabin Manager I have ever met, maybe even the nicest person I have ever met, and ended up in the same positions on board that me and Paul did on our flight to Tampa. That meant working in the same cabin opposite each other. The purser and other girl working in the same cabin were lovely so we had a great flight over. I’ll try not to go into too much detail about the trip over there because I have already done a post about St Lucia and what there is to do at the hotel. Although, I do like a good ramble…

When we arrived, we got ready and spent the evening by the pool. It took the staff about 30 seconds to come over and offer us a cocktail (I love this place!). By the time we had had a few drinks and some food, me and my friend were shattered. There was a pool party on that night but as we so tired, we didn’t make it. Sad times. The next day, we had a plan of spending the morning on the lazy river, but it rained all the way up until we had to get back on board and do the shuttle to Port of Spain. When we returned, it was already late evening, so it was time to get ready for another night by the bar. We managed to survive a bit later this time! 

The weather, thank god, was a lot better the next day. It was still a bit rainy to begin with but it got very hot as the day went on. A few of us had an amazing day relaxing on the lazy river and sunbathing. The view while we were sunbathing was incredible. Before long, it was time for a quick rest, ready for our flight back to England. 

I’d like to say that the flight back to England was as simple as on the way here but then I also stupidly thought my clumsiness had miraculously gone away when I got this job. Both were not the case. Yes. Clumsy Georgie decided to spill Apple Juice down the back of a passenger. I then had to continue serving drinks whilst wanting to crawl into a hole and die. Whilst his top was drying in the galley, my purser managed to get him a pyjama top from First-Class so at least he didn’t spend the flight in a wet t-shirt. To be fair, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been: at the end of the flight, he told me how comfortable the pyjama top was and that he was kind of glad I spilt his drink. I however, am still mortified! Luckily, that was the only embarrassing thing I managed to do on the flight, and the rest of it went by smoothly. 

So that was my second trip to St Lucia. Lovely and relaxing with great company and cocktails! I will definitely be more careful when handling drinks from now on though!
