Amphibious Fun on St. Martin

Amphibious Fun on St. Martin

Whenever we visit the islands while on a cruise ship vacation we take advantage of every opportunity to see something new at each stop. I never understood why anyone would take a cruise that has several ports of call and decide to stay on the ship and not visit the island. Whether we’ve visited the island before or not, we are always enthusiastic about what we might see or learn from the people that live there. One trip not too long ago we were with some friends on a cruise and we let each person pick a tour they would [...]

Monkey Business on Nevis

Monkey Business on Nevis

A few years back my husband and I had the opportunity to rent a villa with some friends on the island of Nevis. It’s a small island, not as commercialized as most, which is what attracts us. It is also right next to the island of St. Kitts, which is within a ferry ride distance. So it’s like getting two islands for the price of one! We stayed for two weeks right across from Oualie Beach, which is beautiful, and one of the nicest on the island.
One of our main objectives was to see [...]

The Rich History Behind Antigua’s Attractions

The Rich History Behind Antigua’s Attractions

If there ever is such a thing as a real version of the concept of heaven on earth, then one would most definitely claim to have discovered it while visiting the gorgeous place known as Antigua (pronounced as an-TEE’gah). Antigua is the main land mass of the twin-island nation of Antigua & Barbuda and is also known in local parlance as Wadadli, which more or less means “our own”. It is the most developed and thriving among the islands of the Caribbean area mostly because of its chic and luxurious tourism industry, offshore banking and several other notable aspects.
Long before [...]
