Caribbean

The best of Secret Bay

Secret Bay is basically what honeymoon dreams are made of: personal staff, plunge pools and private villas overlooking the Caribbean. It comes as no surprise that we are very much beach people: my idea of the perfect unplugged vacation involves a good book, a rum drink with an umbrella in it and sand beneath my […]

The best of Rosalie Bay

After kicking off our honeymoon with a few super relaxing days in Saint Lucia, we headed over to Dominica for a bit of adventure. We started our trip at Rosalie Bay, which was such a wonderful welcome to the island. Located on the island’s wild Atlantic coast and in the heart of the rainforest, it’s lush and […]

The best of Saint Lucia

San Juan is easily one of my favorite winter escapes: this is the third time I’ve gone in four years, mostly because it’s so reliably sunny and warm and easy. I can get my fill of sweet plantains, fish tacos, sunshine and colorful buildings in 36 hours—just enough to sustain me through a few more […]

The best of St Bart’s

Holy moly St Bart’s! This was certainly one of those pinch-me travel experiences: we flew over on an eight-person plane and landed on one of the world’s most dangerous (and most photogenic) landings, drank copious amounts of rosé and ate plenty of fresh-baked bread, and generally just soaked up all of the sunshine and enjoyed the incredibly […]
