The Virgin Islands Has My Heart

Three weeks ago, I was enjoying the Virgin Islands. I am ready to return today. I enjoyed myself so immensely that I cannot fathom not returning to the beautiful islands. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to visit the Caribbean. I visited Hawaii back in 2010, but the Caribbean had been calling my name. Well, in April, I decided to go in June. I know, quick planning. With all of the travel sites online at our fingertips, we all have the opportunity to plan travels quickly. Honestly, I almost decided to go to Miami (South Beach), but the prices to the Virgin Islands were almost the same! I’ll choose anywhere in the Caribbean over Miami any day! Our flight out of LAX was delayed by 1 1/2 hours, which made us miss our connecting flight! I was pissed! But I was determined to enjoy the trip. It was very befitting to walk by this huge artwork in the airport!  We all definitely need peace and love in our hearts when traveling.

Peace & Love

I enjoyed the weather, the food, the atmosphere, the people, the mountains, the beaches the view, and everything else I can think of. My significant other was ready to move to the island after the first day! We’ll have to see about that.
