A Plane to Paradise

I did have another post planned for today but honestly it wasn’t quite right; I’ll share it soon, promise! It just has to been done properly….but for today you’ll be pleased to hear after my interesting but not ideal start to the holiday (see here) I finally made it to St Maarten and the rest of my family.

St Maarten is a tiny Island in the caribbean, half dutch, half french. It doesn’t seem to be well known from the name but most people will recognise this airport landing.

Or you can check out the video on my Instagram!

And yes this sign does warn you against injury or DEATH! (the heat is pretty intense, I definitely wouldn’t want to get too close!

I jumped off the plane to glorious sunshine and a short 10 minute taxi ride to our hotel at Simpson Bay; right on the beach front. I made the most of the afternoon sunshine before we headed out to dinner and a good Family catch up.

Jimbo’s is the place to go if you’re a fan of fajitas and margaritas; they have original, strawberry, passionfruit or mango. I highly recommend the Mango, they’re really good! So good that we went back for a second time later on in the holiday.

Aren’t my brothers and I something special?!

So glad I finally made it; the last time we were all together was probably last christmas to having 8 days together was just what we needed.

The holiday was mostly about catching up and relaxing so I’m not going to share everything with you; only some highlights to inspire your own trip to St Maarten!
