A mere few hours’ flight, plus a taxi drive, followed by a boat trip, and topped off with a wild ride in the back of a pickup over narrow winding roads making hairpin turns on impossible inclines with soaring views of brilliant turquoise water below…is a nature lover’s dream resort called Maho Bay Eco Camps on the island of St. John in the American owned part of the Caribbean called the US Virgin Islands. I first visited on a whim following what I refer to as The Great Depression of 2002, during which time I got skinnier than I’d ever dreamed possible but was too despondent to enjoy it. I have returned to Maho Bay at least once a year ever since. It is a paradise on earth.
I hope you have your own idea of paradise, and are able to visit often. Or perhaps you’re a person who actually resides in your paradise, in which case I admire you for your commitment to living a lifestyle that’s in alignment with your values. You’re awesome!
