Postcards tagged: Island Living
TURKS AND CAICOS – If we’re giving points for convenience, ease of planning, water gorgeousness, and we-know-how-to-roll-out-the-welcome-mat-for-visitors, I’m giving the blue ribbon to T&C.
PLACENCIA, Belize – You’re living a Corona Extra TV commercial, you know, the one with a bottle, palm trees, seagull soundtrack, and crystal sea. Serious bliss.
FIJI – We took a boat ride to Vorovoro Island, down a lazy river of mangroves and out towards Cakaulevu Reef. I fell in love with the island before I set foot on its shores.
St. Lucia – A recent renovation has turned the new Caribbean resort into a completely low-key and casual sybaritic experience where your every whim is attended.
BORA BORA – God must have personally placed this islands in the ocean after He finished the rest of the world. This place stands alone in its spectacular beauty.
HARBOUR ISLAND, The Bahamas – This is a place to lay in the sand, build a sand castle, dine on conch salad, and contemplate whatever it is you think about when you're barefoot.
BALI – I can't stop thinking about the simple lifestyle in many of the villages, which seems to have perished from so many other parts of the world.
COOK ISLAND, South Pacific – The men had gathered in the yard behind the hostel to husk coconuts. Three a minute.
PANAMA – This was especially great: Traveling through a smattering of islands in pitch blackness on a tiny motor boat under a full moon — with no idea what was waiting for us.
PANTELLERIA, Italy – If true escape is what you're looking for, Pantelleria is your place. The bleak ruggedness of the island, the anti-Capri of it all, makes it worth the flight from Rome.
