We may encounter defeat but we must not be defeated. – Maya Angelou
It’s the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It’s the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It’s the one who won’t be taken,
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live.
-Westlife – ‘The Rose’
On the second day of our trip, we were up early after having an early night the day before. We took some time to shoot the outfit of the day and then proceeded to hop on a safari for $1, heading to Red Hook. This is a popular touristic town on the east end of the island featuring red-tiled roof buildings. It also overlooks the island of St John. The trip was less than five minutes from our villas.
I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled; the difference between the two being this, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment. – Hilaire Belloc
I’m not a morning person and I hate waking up early but when it comes to going on vacation, I’m more than happy to be up by 5 AM. On Friday, May 22, the girls and I boarded an American Airlines flight departing from JFK heading to St Thomas. The flight was quick and short, only three hours and thirty minutes. We landed at Cyril E. King Airport and as we stepped off the plane, we were welcomed by the much needed warmth of the island with temperatures in the mid to high 80s.
