Welcome to Paradise
Because I like to be completely honest, when I don't feel well I normally reach for a re-read. I always go for something that I have previously read and loved because when I don't feel good I don't want to have to think about what I'm reading. Go ahead, read that again, I promise it does make sense.
So one of the books I have read over and over again takes place on an island in the Caribbean called St. Barts. Honestly, I always thought it was a made up island. Sadly, geography must leave me the older I get because I swear when I was a kid I was good at it.
This weekend, after reading the book, AGAIN, I decided to look this place up. And to my forever amazement, it exists.
So of course the next step was for me to see if I could find an all inclusive or a cruise line that visits here.
I was successful.
So now I want to plan another trip. I think I could get the Captain on board if we hadn't already been talking about taking an all inclusive trip to the Dominican Republic this spring. The difference in the cost is significant, but in all fairness the trip to the Dominican is flying to one destination and that's it. The cruise, as you can see by the picture I have attached, would give us the ability to visit six ports.
I haven't figured out how I am going to get him on board yet, but I am working on it. After all, I'm not getting any younger and I want to see new places every time we leave home. To me, what is the point of seeing the same places over and over? I need to get my travel on. And, I am not getting any younger.
Have you ever been inspired to visit somewhere based on a read?
