Here at Four Seasons Resort Estates, Nevis we relish the opportunity to talk to clients and visitors about the many inspiring activities, historic sites, and ocean-front hangouts on our beautiful island. We are blessed with such a diversity of attractions that the task of relaying each and every highlight can be rather a challenge, and so we’ve partnered with prolific blogger and travel writer Charli Moore to bring you an insider’s guide to the island.
Over the course of the next few months Charli will be bringing you her take on the island’s most adventurous activities, and letting you know where to head when you need a little rest and relaxation. She’ll be sampling the best dishes at Nevis’ favorite eateries, and sipping specialty cocktails at the many beach-front bars; all in an effort to give you the inside track on how best to enjoy your stay on Nevis.
Eric Johnson, Director of Sales and Marketing caught up with the digital nomad to talk travel, island hopping, and why she chose a location independent life.
EJ: Welcome to Nevis Charli, we’re excited to have you sharing your insider insights into life here on the island. Can you tell me how you found your way to our corner of the Caribbean?
CM: I’ve been traveling through the region for the last 18 months. From Barbados to Antigua and then onto St. Kitts and Nevis, I’ve fallen in love with the warm and friendly people and, of course the beautiful beaches and wealth of sunny days! Nevis is known for its lush landscapes and secluded swathes of sand and so I’ve had the island on my radar for a while. Thanks to its relaxed vibe and lack of development I had always envisaged it to offer a taste of the real Caribbean.
EJ: You’ve been traveling full time for the last four and a half years. Tell me about your adventures to date.
Leaving the UK mid 2011, I’ve traveled throughout parts of Europe, the USA, Canada, and Central America. I took a 12-month road trip across Australia back in 2012, and then spent 18 months exploring New Zealand. I travel at quite a slow pace and as such I’ve been fortunate enough to really immerse myself in the locations I visit. I like getting off the well-trodden tourist trail which is probably part of the reason I’ve found myself here on Nevis.
EJ: What’s been your most memorable travel experience to date?
CM: Hiking New Zealand’s Tongariro Alpine Crossing has to be one of my favorite travel memories. Having heard from a number of other travelers that the hike was a must whilst visiting New Zealand, I traversed the epic 19.4km route from start to finish in a little under eight hours. It was tough, there’s no denying it, but the vast volcanic landscape kept me enthralled throughout and I was bowled over by the vibrancy of the famous Emerald Pools that hang suspended between the Central and Red Craters. You can read more about my experience in my blog – wanderlusters.
EJ: Tell me something interesting about yourself.
CM: I’m a certified PADI Divemaster, I have a BA Hons in Fine Art, and I’ve a penchant for peanut butter; especially the chunky kind, spread on hot toast, with butter, and jelly. Heaven.
