Island-Hopping: St. Helena

CBS News’ Conor Knighton has been ISLAND HOPPING again, and on this royal wedding weekend he’s found the perfect destination:

It took 13,374 miles of flying just to stand on this rock. I traveled from Los Angeles to London to Johannesburg to Windhoek, Namibia, before I finally arrived on this patch of Royal Soil in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Giselle Richards said, “We’ve always been told that we’re friendly and welcoming, and it’s not until you get here that you realize that it’s genuine. It’s not a put-on show, so enjoy it.”

Now that getting here has gotten slightly easier, St. Helena is hoping the rest of the world might finally come to enjoy what this remote island has to offer. A place that was once a useful stopover is ready to become known as a destination.
