Traveling to Sint Maarten/St. Martin

Traveling to Sint Maarten/St. Martin

Hello from Sint Maarten! 

That's right. Right now I am in St. Maarten, which is the Dutch side of the island. After leaving Wednesday morning at 6 am from Little Rock, we had one quick stop and landed in St. Maarten after 1 p.m. After we grabbed our luggage and went through customs, it was on to get our rental car... 

It's a red Jeep! Honestly, I don't know why red Jeeps are so exciting to me, but I love them. 

We are renting a house from my good college friend Casey and her husband Dan. If you know them, then you know this house was featured on HGTV International House Hunters. Their driveway is super steep (why it's important to rent a jeep). 

This is the master bedroom - lovely, right? (I'll do a house tour later. You will be jealous. Want to be here. And die. All in one post with how incredible it is.)

This is the view from the bed. In love. 

After we dropped out stuff off we went to get very important necessities. Cocktails. I.E. We went to the local market to grab goods to make drinks and sit on the balcony to watch planes fly in. 

After a couple of drinks, showers, and a little rest, it was on to dinner at a local place called Skip Jack's. They're well known for their massive sized lobsters which just look terrifying to me. 

Though dinner was great - and I went a little on the "lighter" side... A tomato and mozzarella salad with tuna carpaccio. A glass of champagne and I was finished. 

After dinner, we came back to the house and sat on the rooftop deck to watch the lights and planes fly over us. It was a long travel day and we needed rest for the next couple of days. (I needed sleep and quick!)

  1. Looks lovely! Have so much fun!

  2. Oh wow this sounds like a dream! I went to St. Lucia for my honeymoon, so I'm sure this place is just as gorgeous.

  3. Sounds like a great trip! I love the view from up top of the hill! Hope you have great weather!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear from you!
