My vacation to the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Thomas more specifically, is coming up fast! I leave on Black Friday at 10:20 pm head to Newark, New Jersey and then down to the islands. I should arrive in the sunshine by 1 pm local time on Saturday. Long flight, but hopefully it will be worth it. I haven't been on a real, extended vacation since 2005 and this trip will be a real treat for me and a MUCH needed break from my job. This is a family vacation (minus my little brother) and I am sure my parents will want to do a lot of exploring and fun things. What kind of food do they have down there? Caribbean? I have no idea, but I really hope that they have a ton of coconut shrimp, mojitos and fruit. The great news is: I get to find out and I will write about my findings when I get back home on December 5th!
Wish me "Bon Voyage". . . or just wish me an uneventful, un-cramped flight . . . whatever works.
P.S. The picture above is a picture of the beach at the resort where we will be staying. It is called the Elysian.
