A to Z Around the World in 30 Days -- The Islands


"Island Sunrise" MMSikes
When the Passenger to Paradise selects her "i"  destination, she has to choose Islands. After all there is no other destination that suits her so well. She adores the islands of the Caribbean. She also loves islands such as Hilton Head. And, of course, she cannot help but hold in adulation the Hawaiian Islands. How can she help but want to return to Sint Maarten, or Antigua, or Jamaica? Of course, she wants to go. And she is writing a second Hotels to Remember book that focuses on the exotic Hawaiian Islands destinations that include the Royal Hawaiian and the lavish hotel at Princeville.

So many destinations, but the Passenger wants only the warm ones. She's never been to the Greek Isles, but she would love to go if only to have a chance to photograph the amazing colors that frequently descend upon those special islands.

How you visited any of the islands? Which ones draw you back? Please let us know.

I have been to Jamaica many years ago. It was a great time and I certainly would visit again. My favorite island trip was last year to Fiji. I could live where we stayed.

Monti said...

Chuck, I've never been to Fiji. What an exciting trip that must have been! Jamaica is wonderful!

Have I visited any of them? Alas, no... but I can dream, can't I? And gorgeous photos and stories like these make the dreaming easier and sweeter....

Monti said...

Cathy, thank you. Dreaming is next to being there. Go for it.

Great idea! Scotland has fantastic islands, I have just spent a week on Orkney- dramatic scenery, amazing bird life, ancient neolithic monuments that pre-date the pyramids, great walking, more modern history etc etc. However, it tends not to be warm, at least not at this time of year. But there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing...

Ebby, thanks for your comments. I've been to Scotland a long time ago but didn't visit islands there. It's a beautiful country. Thanks for visiting.
