    Re: Flight v. Ferry for Nervous Traveler

    It is a personal decision for sure. But, I will give you my two cents. In 30 plus years of visits to St. Barth, we only took the ferry once---had to as we missed the last plane out of SXM. Never...

    Re: “Maiden”

    Correct. The film is based on the book which I have read. The sailing scenes in the film make the passages in the book come to life.
