    So true. Options are limited.

    We can all blame the airlines and their no-refund policies, and also swear not flying with them in the future (me the first). Truth is, what really matters is that they are available and bring us safely to destination. As soon as flights will resume and airports reopen, hundreds will book the most convenient itinerary and cheapest option to reach SBH, regardless of the airline's name. When Winair will offer 15 flights a day between SXM and SBH at $80 one way, people will book them, simple as that. And all the no-refund policies will be long forgotten and ignored.

    Passeport Français délivré à chaque habitant de St Barth. Sur cette partie du forum on parle français. Si c'est pour parler anglais, il y a des dizaines d'autres sections à choisir, en fait tout le reste du forum. Cela s'appelle du respect. C'est pourtant simple à comprendre, non ? Forum Pour Les Francophones: Un forum sur les vacances à St Barth pour les personnes dont la langue maternelle est le français Bravo, ce "noel" vient d'insulter à peu près 30% de la population de St Barth ! Si on traduit, voici en gros ce qu'il dit: Les Français métropolitains ne sont donc pas "amicaux", ils sont "prétentieux", "indécents". "Ils n'aiment pas les Nord Américains et les accueillent mal".

    We stopped by to wish Marius a happy birthday this afternoon. He was in fine spirits and told us several stories of his life on the Island when he was a young man, all while fielding one call after another from friends and family. Phil

    Les français de la metropole viennent souvent a st barts pour travailler et parfois n'apprécient pas les St Barts et ca c'est dommage.... ils sont la pour travailler uniquement et n'ont pas trop d'attaches a l'ile ou ses habitants. Ce n'est pas une généralité heureusement, et beaucoup apprécient et aiment les St Barts! Moi inclue.

    Good point! I would also add that in our years on the island, the St. Barths French drew a distinction between themselves and the European French. The St. Barth French were friendly, unassuming, and uniformly decent. They liked North Americans and welcomed them. The European French, generally, were not that way at all.

    And here is the 3rd letter sent to the Government about the border restrictions. This time, Daniel Gibbs, President of St. Martin, is writing to the Prime Minister: http://www.lepelican-journal.com/saint-martin/societe/Restrictions-aeriennes-Le-courrier-de-Daniel-Gibbs-au-Premier-ministre-18636.html Pretty much the same content as the letters sent by St Barth and Guadeloupe, asking for the immediate reopening of the borders to save jobs and the economy. - With immediate effect: allowing visitors to enter St Martin (no more restrictions) - Starting June 22: cancelation of the quarantine requirements, a PCR test before departure and a second one 8 days after arrival - Official statement asap so that tourism professionals can start accepting bookings.

    Etant donnés l'histoire de l'Europe et les (très) nombreux mouvements de population à travers le continent au cours des siècles derniers, la plupart d'entre nous aurait bien du mal à préciser quelles sont nos origines au-delà de un, deux ou trois siècles. Pour recentrer le sujet, l'histoire de St Barth est variée, mais malgré les origines des populations vivant sur l'île, les vrais natifs (les indiens Caraïbes) sont malheureusement absents aujourd'hui. Il existe encore quelques populations indiennes ici et là, notamment sur l'île de la Dominique. Quant aux autres habitants, ils sont tous des immigrés venus de France. Certains il y a quelques siècles, d'autres (qu'on appelle les "métros") plus récemment. Il faut désormais aussi compter avec les Portugais de plus en plus nombreux avec...

    How true you are. We also have been refused a refund by Winair. They have not been cooperative at all. I understand they are loosing money by refunding but it hasn’t been caused by clients cancelling for no reason. We have finally got the villa and a flight for July 1st. I pray the boarders are open then or I will have to give up on our trip this year. I can not loose flight money again although Tradewinds have emailed me and said they will fully refund if they cannot fly. Tradewinds flew us out when Irma hit us and we always said we would use them from now on. After this latest episode they will be the only airline we will use to St Bart’s... I will never recommend Winair again... Fingers and toes crossed for boarders opening for our July 1st trip

    Oui, je pense que je suis tombé un jour sur une telle carte. Il me semble que la plupart des colons français est venue de la côte ouest de France, mais qu’il y en avait quelqu’uns qui sont venus de l’est. Peut-être les Bernier, par exemple ?
