Nathan and I want to travel the world. It is our deepest desire to explore all the crevices of this planet, taste the best food, see the most breathtaking sites, and meet the most interesting people. It is simply what my soul aches for!
Nathan and I have done Europe twice, so we wanted to taste something different, and with limited time off from work, we decided to try the Caribbean! St. Martin in the French West Indies seemed perfect for us because it is supposedly a foodies paradise along with the most breathtaking scenery and French Caribe vibe. Our trip was wonderful. We hiked to a secluded beach everyday called Happy Bay. We walked through the most gorgeous terrain filled with iguanas, beautiful birds and cows which eventually spit us out to the most picturesque beach line with palms, sea grapes, and the bluest water you could imagine. We swam and basked in the sun for hours only to return home each night sun kissed and covered in white sand that seemed impossible to get off our bodies. We rented a car and found the most beautiful baths of sea water filled with pink rocks and crashing waves. We spent the evenings watching the sunset with our toes in the crashing waves. It was magical. I would love to visit St. Martin again very soon. Nathan put it perfectly: "The Caribbean is its own beast," meaning you cant compare its beauty to Hawaii or other tropical places because it stands alone in its majesty. Hope you enjoy some snap shots from our adventure!
