St. Maarten 2017


Last week, I escaped to St. Maarten for my birthday. Devoid of a vacation in over 2 years, I felt it absolutely necessary to hit the reset button and truly get some R&R. For 6 days, I bathed in the sun, relaxed in the sand, and played in the waves - no better way to celebrate another trip around the sun. I finally crossed my next country off my bucket list and manifested a vacation I only dreamed of experiencing.

From the moment I disembarked the plane, I was completely blown away. The island of St. Maarten may be small, but it boasts of the clearest waters, eclectic food, stunning views, and adventurous activities. Even reveling in simple joys, such as sunrises and sunsets left me in awe. I was lucky to be spoiled with the warm hospitality and luxurious style of Sonesta Ocean Point all-inclusive resort.

St. Maarten exceeded my expectations. She makes you feel at home, comforts you with warm breezes, kisses your skin with the sun, and welcomes you to a tropical paradise so breathtaking. Everyone deserves to experience a tranquility and bliss so sweet.

Enjoy my vacation looks below!
