Sometimes getting down and dirty is a good thing.
Take my birthday, for instance. Instead of advancing a year, I decided I’d rather try taking a few years off, using therapeutic mud. At least that was my goal… well, that and jumping on the opportunity to unleash my inner 5 year-old.
Sulfur Springs on St. Lucia was the much-anticipated excursion on my week-long birthday celebration on the Carnival Cruise ship Valor. Just inland from the picturesque fishing village of Soufrière (French for sulfur) on the southwestern side of the island, the thermal pools and mud baths are inside the world only “drive-in” volcano. The road runs right into the crater of the dormant volcano, where you are immediately surrounded in steam, sulfur, and boiling mud.
