To merely call this place “paradise” would be a drastic understatement. Other appropriate descriptions would include “pure bliss,” “cloud nine,” or even “heaven on earth.” It has been a dream of mine for several years now to visit the famous beaches of the gorgeous tropical island of St. John, and this month that dream finally came true! It’s beauty was more lovely than I had imagined, and our adventures on the island seemed endless. We were blessed to share the experience with another couple who are dear friends of ours, and the memories we share are unforgettable. From boating around the island to roaming the ruins of historical sugar plantations to visiting neighboring islands, our time on St. John was perfect!
Our stunning villa was nestled high in the hills of the island, which made for some amazing views!

The beautiful “baths” of Virgin Gorda:
Since the airport was on St. Thomas, we were able to spend some time there as well.
