Best Views in the US Virgin Islands

USVI Tourism

Every view in every direction was stunning. From lush mountain ranges to turquoise waters, the US Virgin Islands are picture perfect. Each of the three major islands has a unique character all its own. Fortunately, I was able to explore both St. Thomas and St. John during my 5 day vacation. I’ll have to make another trip back to experience St. Croix but the vistas on St. Thomas and St. John left me awe-struck and wanting more. Here are my favorite USVI views.  Continue reading

The Darkness Set In at Zozo’s at The Sugar Mill

Zozo's Restaurant, St. John,-USVI

I usually write about the positives in my life. I’m blessed with a healthy family and a beautiful home. I have a dream job with regular travel and extreme adventures. Sure I have good and bad days, but with all of that happiness, I don’t usually have time to focus on the negatives. Something happened at Zozo’s restaurant in St. John, USVI, though, that had such a deep impact on me, I have to share.  Continue reading

Becoming Iron Woman with St. Thomas Flyboarding

Flyboarding St. Thomas, USVI

I seek adventures that scare me. Living life on the other side of my fears is the greatest reward possible. While in St. Thomas, USVI, I had the opportunity to try flyboarding over the pristine waters of Lindbergh Bay with St. Thomas Flyboarding. I was scared; heck, I was petrified. Flying 30 feet above the crystal blue waters, diving like a dolphin, or even trying a backflip or two all sound intimidating enough but strapping a water jetpack board to my feet while doing it is just plan insane. I’m not Ironman; these are things in movies and dreams about the future, right? Nope! It’s the here and now and I did it; and let me tell you – it is absolutely exhilarating, insane, and beyond awesome! My whole life I’ve actually been training to be Iron Woman without realizing it and St. Thomas Flyboarding let me put my skills into action. Continue reading

Exploring a Less Fearsome Coral World in St. Thomas

Coral World, St. Thomas, USVI

I can’t breathe. I can’t get my breath. There’s too much air; it’s choking me. I can’t get back to the surface. What do I do? The weights are too heavy. I’m going to drown… I’m sorry, Athena. Mommy can’t come home to you. I’m not going to make it this time. I’ve failed.

Universal Hollywood Date

Universal Studios Hollywood, CA

Dear Darren Carter, 

I’ve had my eye on you for some time now. Your new jeans do an awesome job accentuating your… and your Donald Duck voice is the best reminder of how great a father you are. (A real turn-on for this gal.) Your jokes always keep me laughing, your smile brightens my day, and your commitment to a healthier lifestyle is admirable. 

Would you go on a date with me this Saturday? As a disclaimer, I haven’t been on a date in years and my dating skills are lacking but I promise to think of something fun for us. 

I anxiously await your response and I’ll think about you until I hear more. 

Lesley Carter
