Trip report August 8-21, 2009

Have been going to St Maarten for over ten years but had never gone alone. Finalized my divorce in June and decided I needed some "me time" so off I went. Was concerned about being a single woman traveling alone on the island but those fears were quickly put to rest once I landed. I had a WONDERFUL time all by myself and I was never in fear of my safety. I woke each morning with a smile on my face eagerly anticipating what adventure I'd have that day. I stayed at the Flamingo the first week then moved to the Royal Palm the second week and I never felt unsafe no matter what time of night I returned to my room at either resort. I danced, I dined, I played, I relaxed, I sang, I laughed and I cried; sometimes alone and sometimes not (smile). I've always felt that two weeks is too long to spend on any island especially being alone but the time went by far too fast therefore I've already decided next year, God willing, TWO WEEKS IT IS!!! (lol)

Thank you so much for your brief but very poignant report. I am sorry to hear about your divorce but at the same time, I would like to congratulate you on your bravery to explore the endless possibilities your life holds for you and that although you have been to the island numerous times, you found it to be just as enjoyable, or even more so. And next year you may even decide that 2 weeks is still not enough...lol.
