This island is not just beautiful beaches and great restaurants. What really makes this place so special is the people who live and travel here. If you ever meet someone in your life who is in love with this island, it really puts a bond between you. This was one of those moments… @mommamarc1 and I have interacted on social media for a long time and it just so happened we were going to be on the island over the same days. I had so much fun meeting up with her and her group for sunset drinks at Dany’s Beach Bar, then we watched the Patriots game and even went out to dinner to close out the night. This is what makes St. Maarten|St. Martin special. It’s the people and the vibe of this island.
I came to this island 5 years ago for work and knew nothing about it. I never thought I’d be where I am today. It was the people who made me start talking on social media about this place. It was the friends I’ve made along the way. If you respect and show love for this island, it will love you right back. St. Maarten people are some of the strangest and loveliest people I have ever met and I couldn’t be happier to call myself one.
And to @mommamarc1 , thank you. I’m so happy to have finally met face to face.
