Escape to the Caribbean
Despite having grown up in Maui, I am more fascinated by the islands of the Caribbean than any other islands on the planet. I was born in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, although moving away at the age of five left me with just enough of a trace memory to ignite a lifelong curiosity. In the 24 years since I moved away I've yet to return to the Caribbean, and it's an island escape which is constantly on my radar.
