Here it is guys! The final post from my St. Thomas extravaganza! Not gonna lie, flipping through these photos again, brought the memories right back, as I sit in my hot apartment here in Harlem. I can never fully explain how much fun I had in the Virgin Islands, but being able to celebrate my birthday with my closest friend, was the sweetest thing in the world. Hope you enjoy the pics from the Wing Festival, my birthday in St. John, ferry ride pics and a few more beach pics!
Group pic. Stunning view.

Dranks and dancing…
Paul was the first person to wish me happy birthday
Well, I’ve finally managed to clear some room from my media library to bring you part one of my St. Thomas vacation recap. I have decided to really come through the hundreds of pictures I took while away and present an edited photo collage of my adventures.
While it has been a month since my trip, I can still smell the water, hear the birds, and feel the salty ocean water on my skin. The only thing I miss more than the breathtaking views and the overwhelming aura of peace and relaxation is Cynthia.
I have to admit it’s pretty awesome to have a friend in this corner of the world. Yes, of course, I miss her, but getting to see her in her new home: thriving, happy, effervescent and carefree, was wonderful to see. My wanderlust has definitely been piqued and I am now thinking ahead to my next great adventure for 2016. I’m thinking Italy! But until then, here are photos from the first three days of my trip on St. Thomas proper. Enjoy 🙂

Well, I’m back in the city that never sleeps, in desperate need of sleep.
Vacation is officially over, and as I sluggishly finish out my shift and prepare for a writer’s meeting, I wanted to thank any and all friends and followers for their birthday wishes. Spending the day in St. John and returning to a flood of texts, videos and posts was icing on the cake. Once the fog has lifted, expect to see even more picturesque scenes from my trip. Thanks for being a fantastic host Cynthia! Love you!
