Happy New Year B’s.

With the good, the bad, and the ugly of the holidays behind us, it’s time to get out in the world and have a little fun.  Whether you’re in need of an immediate adventure or planning ahead for the spring and summer, over the next few weeks we’re going to fill you in on some of our secret travel tips.

Travel Tip #1:

Have You Considered Camping?

If you’re such a complete princess that you must have a hair dryer, hot running water, and a toilet in your room to be complete, then skip this part where we sagely tell you about opportunities to visit some of the most beautiful places in the world on a shoestring so you get to spend the day in just your G-string.

Some of the most magnificent, unspoiled parts of the world are the least developed, and camping is the way to experience them. We know people who know people who go to Cinnamon Bay in St. John every year (now they refuse to talk to us because we let the secret out), a low-key affair right on one of the most sensational beaches in the Carribbean; you can’t go wrong. Experience the sublime warm aqua water, stay practically for free, and commune with nature on an island not nearly as touristy as the other Virgin Islands. Easy to get to: Simply fly to St. Thomas and take a ferry.*
