Meet a Vincy
Luke Punnett
As a young Vincentian in search of his future, Luke Punnett’s early path in life took him off to India, where he came perilously close to departing this world via a severe case of malaria. That near-death experience had a profound effect on his psyche and upon returning to the Caribbean, to Barbados where his family was living, he went to ground by living with a Rastafarian community in what we in the West Indies call ‘debush’.

Positive Vibrations in Bequia
In Caribbean life, pitching utopian ideals and ideologies is a regular pastime, as natural and prevalent as the almond tree leaves gusting along the shore. Fortunately, Bequians possess an amiable knack for taking lofted ‘what if’ queries to tangible, real world task.
