Local’s Getaway: Hull Bay Beach

Local’s Getaway: Hull Bay Beach

Hull Bay Beach is located on the north shore of the island of St. Thomas and is a wonderful place to get away from the crowds of places of Magens Bay or Coki Beach. If you decide to go to this out-of-the way beach you can’t count on a cheap trip via safari bus. You’ve […]

Our Apartment In Florence

Our Apartment In Florence

We mentioned in a previous post that our romantic plans of checking into what we’ve called “our room” at the Pendini Hotel in Florence, where we’ve stayed each time we visited the city, were scuttled by lack of availability even four months out.
