Hi loves & Happy Valentines day!
Today I’m sharing with you our favorite stop on the Caribbean cruise, St. Thomas. Oh my, was it alluring from every 360 angle. We took loads of snaps on the USVI because it was so scenic. We definitely will love to visit this island again in the future.
We arrived at St. Thomas early in the morning on Christmas day, and were worried that tours would be cancelled and stores closed, however since the “cruise ships” actually own the port areas they were a little late in opening but everything did run smoothly for the rest of the day.
For our excursion on the island we decided to do a full island tour that included a gondola ride up Paradise point, then a tour up the mountains to enjoy the island from every angle. The tour guide and the rest of the tourists were all friendly, but mostly elderly, however we didn’t mind since it was our first time on the island and still made the most of our time there.
After the tour through the mountains and picture-perfect views the tour guide asked if anyone wanted to stop at the shopping area, and since we still had a few hours before the cruise departed we stopped at the massive luxury shopping area to mostly window shop. To our surprise most of the jewelry shops were owned by South Asians and we got to chit chat with them to find out they have been living on St. Thomas for most of their lives (how lucky, and they can visit the US anytime they want).
We had a great time on St. Thomas, and if we get to go back we are definitely going to check out the famous Magen’s bay, and St. John. I highly recommend this island to anyone interested in beautiful views, luxury shopping and clean, natural beaches (my meaning of “natural” will be discussed in the next post about Half Moon Cay, Bahamas).
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day & weekend. And remember love day is everyday.
