A Travellerspoint blog

Love City~


I'm a practical kinda girl. I work hard (two jobs). Pay my bills...yada yada....
But there comes a point where you realize no matter how much you work, or how much you try to save money, cars break down, unexpected expenses come up, etc. So sometimes...you just have to say to heck with it, and book yourself a getaway that will renew your soul.
Booking this trip wasn't an easy decision. I'm a mom first and foremost and I HATE leaving my kids. Hate it. But sometimes it does a mom good to book a getaway...with nowhere to go and nowhere to be. To just lay around on a beach, soak up the sun, and enjoy the man God gave me to share my life with. We have traveled with friends, but it has been a long time since my husband and I took a trip that was just the two of us and I am freaking excited.
"The islands" are our favorite place to unwind. I just can't explain it. The closest I can come to explaining it is that when I'm there I feel like my soul is set free. It just feels "right". We can hop in a jeep with the windows down and the music turned up and explore. We can feel free, and silly, and just enjoy being together.
St. John is my favorite of islands. We have gone there on day trips with friends while staying on Tortola, but have never stayed there for a week. I am so excited about exploring the island and all the different beaches and little nuances of this beautiful island.
My husband loves to snorkel. I am so excited for him because I know he is going to have some glorious snorkeling on STJ and I can't wait to explore that and share that with him.
I booked us a condo in Cruz Bay so that we can hang out in the evenings at some of our favorite places and not have to worry about driving across the island at night. It will be convenient and I think it will be a great fit for us for this trip. If we were with a group or if it was a family trip we would stay more mid island I think. But for my hubby and I the Cruz Bay location will be perfect.
41 days til we leave. I have waves of anxiety about leaving my babies (who are now 16 and 18...and our son is 23 and on his own)..but at the same time I am just so excited to explore the place I love...with the man I love. That's the good stuff.
