Hurricanes aside, 2017 was not a bad year. Especially not when it came to travel. I got the chance to visit a new-to-me island in the Caribbean, which brought me closer to my ultimate goal: Caribbean Domination [insert evil laugh here], I got to meet a bunch of really amazing island women on an epic girls getaway and I got to meet and touch some animals in their own environment. All in all, not a bad travel year.
I am a firm believer that everything is possible, that the universe listens to our needs and our wants and that most often than not it delivers IF you are willing to work hard for it.
Summer is here and Social media is lit (is this how I’m supposed to use this millennial expression?) with all sorts of posts on how to get that perfect bikini body, how to take that perfect beach photo and which beaches to flaunt that new bikini on. Meanwhile, the rising temperatures and my steadily increasing electric bill because of my air conditioning being on constantly, is indication enough for me that the summer months have arrived.
This is the time when most of us humans travel and the most popular destinations are places that are otherwise too cold to travel to. Hey, I might be a simple island girl but I get it.
But have I got news for you. Come closer. Can you keep a secret?
It’s common knowledge that the Caribbean islands make for the best vacations anytime of the year but did you know that these islands are exceptionally awesome in the summer months?
I say Nevis and chances are you automatically think of the Four Seasons, but did you know that this little island gem has a lot more to offer when it comes to accommodation choices? What about sleeping in historic, well preserved and beautifully restored Sugar Mill Estates or Plantations?
When I think of Nevis I think of history, luxury and culinary delights. Now wrap all that into one and you have the island’s 4 Plantations/Sugar Mill Estates turned inns.
Suggestions what to eat, do, where to sleep and what to experience on the Caribbean island of Nevis.
On April 5th, the day after my birthday I took my first flight in a long time with our national airline Winair. I am actually ashamed to admit that the last time I flew with these guys was almost 7 years ago. I guess I did not have much interest in discovering the Caribbean back then. How things change.
