Aaaah Summer. The season most people look out to. It’s the time for bikinis and ridiculous crash diets. Time for suntaning and fatuous flirting. To many, summertime symbolizes fun, freedom, romance and passion. For us on St. Maarten however, it is the season we dread the most. Summer means Hurricane Season. And being located smack in the hurricane belt is no fun, I can tell you that.
The Traveling Island Girl has been in existence for less than a month, so imagine my surprise when I get an alert that TheTravelingIslandGirls blog has been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award.
Bogotá is the capital of Colombia and of the Cundinamarca department and is the fastest growing city in Latin America. It has become a world class urban destination and it is obvious from one’s arrival at El Dorado International Airport. The airport is humongous and ultra modern.

Wow! My very own first blog.
If you’d stopped me in the street back in the beginning of this year and asked me if I would ever be a blogger I would have probably looked at you with my eyes wide open, a sarcastic but amusing smile on my face and probably mumbled something like “Ain’t nobody got time for that” and continued on with my oh so very interesting, mostly stressful life as a glamorous event planner and small business owner.
