During our entire trip, we were so tired by the end of the day that we would pass out before 9PM and by 5AM, we would be awake. I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t even make it to dinner most of those nights for this reason. Needless to say, we woke up feeling refreshed on day 3 of our getaway and decided it was time to head to the famous St. John. I wore my bathing suit under my maxi, grabbed my DSLR, a pair of shades and my beach bag and we were on our way. Continue reading “USVI Trip: Exploring St. John”

Today was actually a bit too warm to be wearing a coat but I’ve learned not to be fooled by the sporadic sunshine in this state. The temperature was much cooler in the shade, and let’s not forget the night time chills after the sun sets. Oh the joy of transitioning!
