Tagged: , , , ,

One of the aspects of Instagram that I appreciate is its focus on visual storytelling. On our recent trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I tried to expand on that by lengthening my comments beyond the typical “this is a picture of fill in the blank at blankety blank location” notations. I find that I appreciate it when visual storytellers include a detailed description of the moment, going beyond what the picture is of and...

Tagged: , ,

Even since I learned about the island of Roatan, located just off Honduras in the Caribbean, I’ve wanted to travel there. I don’t know that there’s anything that particularly sets it apart. Although it’s on the western edge of the Caribbean Sea, the island contains all of the same characteristics that draw visitors to its eastern counterparts. It even has a lively beach bar scene on its western tip, making that section of the island a...

Tagged: , ,

The San Blas Islands, an archipelago of about 380 islands and cays, are located off the northern coast of Panama in the Caribbean Ocean. With only about 50 of them inhabited, this paradise full of undeveloped islands leaves plenty of room for exploration and room to roam on its many beaches. While the majority of the islands pictured below are of Isla Diablo, you can expect to find the same unspoiled beauty on any of the other San...

St. Maarten and Anguilla 2.5 – We’re Coming Back!

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Vacation choices can be difficult to make, at least in my family’s case. First, it’s expensive, especially when you add in two little tax deductibles that now have to have their own seat. Second, because it’s expensive, you don’t want to get the choice wrong. Then there’s the fact that there are so many beautiful beaches to visit in the Caribbean – how do you choose?
