Saba and Mt. Scenery

Saba is a small island in the Caribbean which is still under the Netherland’s kingdom. It is known as the “Unspoiled Queen of the Caribbean”. Well, true indeed for I witness how the culture and heritage of this beautiful island have preserved albeit long passage of time.

Breathtaking views of Saba! What amazes me is that the houses are uniform in terms of color of the roof, the facade and the windows! Indeed Saba-mazing!

Saba is a paradise in the Caribbean region. This is the cleanest place I have been. I have seen no trash in the streets of Saba‘s town proper. A clean place is beautiful place!

If you want to have rest and maybe peace of mind, go to this place. The serenity and tranquility of the place will help you a lot in maybe figuring out what you need to figure out in life. 🙂

Saba’s churches were built as early at the 17th century! What is also amazing is there is a cemetery at the front of this church. These people were born on the 1800s. Growing up I have always had a great fascination about centuries old structure or things!

 

We did the hike to Mt. Scenery which is actually the highest point in all Netherland’s kingdom! How is that for an achievement! The trail is easy. But be sure to have a strong legs and a lot of stamina. This has 1065 steps, if my memory serves me right. Going up is tiring but at the same time refreshing because the cold wind will greet you as you slowly ascend Mt. Scenery. Also, some mountain chickens, donkey and lizards will meet you on your way! Too bad, when we got to the summit it was all cloudy. We can literally hold the clouds!

A day visit is not enough to discover Saba. This leaves us the promise to go back to her and stay with her a little longer.

Meanwhile, here is the amateur video of our hike to Mt. Scenery.
