  1. Re: After st barts can you really go anywhere else?

    If the shirt fits you wear it but the same shirt doesn't fit everyone.

    As I posted before, we came to SBH then spent several years traveling to other islands. We made many trips to the BVI and if...

    Re: Review of my first trip

    Nice report. One small bit of advice. You went pretty high end on the dining. If you balance out some of the high with some more moderate priced places (which have pretty fab food too) you can bring...

    Re: What did I do wrong?

    That's also what happened with us with SBC with the added benefit of having SBC retrieve our checked bags. That was great. Our originally 3:15 scheduled departure left by 2:00.
  6. Re: Transferring at SXM to Winair with Checked Bags

    If you're asking about the flight through SXM on the way to SBH, another option is St Barth Commuter. We had checked bags when we traveled in mid June. We got an email to attach yellow ribbons to our...

    Observations from our June 2019 trip

    Been back home for almost a week. This isn't so much a trip report as some observations I've made on this trip.

    We made our first trip to the island like so many others on our honeymoon. While we...

    Nice job EGW. Puts my pain perdu to shame.
