My Trip to St. Martin

Ah, the Caribbean. Anyone who knows me knows I lived in Barbados for 5 years. I have been to quite a few of the Caribbean Islands but this was my first time to St. Martin. The island is actually owned by 2 nations. One side is Dutch and one side is French. I must say I was very impressed by this island. It was a lot more free that other islands in the area. Being Dutch and French there is of course a more laid back attitude towards nudity, thus there is a nude beach on the French side. Alcohol is cheap. Rarely was beer more than $2. Usually it was $1. There were casinos, strip clubs, lots of bars, movie theaters, nightclubs, cheap amazing food, and beautiful beaches. The cultures mingled freely so you would here French, Spanish, English and Dutch used side by side. I went with my family so I didn't go out to any clubs but I got drunk every day in my 5 star hotel villa! Enjoy the photos!

I have been to St. Martin several times and plan on returning soon. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.
