However, due to the beach's close proximity to the airport, particularly the back end of the runway, every ten minutes a plane would come in for landing right overhead, and I mean right overhead, leaving the shuddering of its engines and a trailing waft of diesel or jet fuel in its aftermath. I snapped a photo of a small plane landing, but you have to imagine it was sometimes a jumbo four times the size
A few mango smoothies, swims and sand-blasted tourists later we returned to the airport for our flight in a small plane, crammed full with our luggage, to Roadtown, Tortola. A boat then took us to our final, secret destination. We had travelled about twenty-five hours since departing from Vienna. The resort welcomed us with golf carts, great vibes, good wine and really superb food.
