(PRESS RELEASE) – The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) through its website www.stlucia.org and Facebook platform @travelSaintLucia will take viewers and readers on a topical, informative and entertaining destination experience through its “Saint Lucia Inspires” blog series.
As most jurisdictions are observing a state of emergency, imposing travel bans or in the early stages of recovering, there has been a rise in interest in armchair travel. Recent research tells us that people are searching online now for travel ideas in the near future. People are looking for inspiration and connections from their homes as they try to navigate the medical, social and environmental challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic presents.
The “Saint Lucia Inspires” Series commenced at 10 a.m. ECT on April 20, 2020, with a feature by renowned Saint Lucian journalist and writer, Stan Bishop, dubbed Choiseul the Cradle of Craft.
Commenting on the series, Tourism Minister Honourable Dominic Fedee said: “The virtual demand for Saint Lucia at this time is amazing and our team is more than happy to share the stories of our hidden treasures and authentic experiences that when our international gateways are open again, Saint Lucia would be top top-of-mind.”
Saint Lucia Inspires will continue with a bi-monthly Monday-blog that will place special highlights on the island’s villages, heroes, offerings and culture.
In addition to Saint Lucia Inspires, the SLTA continues to showcase its 7 Minutes in Saint Lucia Series which is a live Instagram virtual experience on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11 a.m. ECT on @travelSaintLucia
Saint Lucia, Let Her Inspire you!
