November 26 2014

DSC_1104I’ve had a few spontaneous weekends this year that I’ve documented rather smugly on Instagram. However, there’s so many more pictures I’d like to share with the blogging world. I’ll work my way back, over a few posts, from my most recent 48 hour getaway to way back in June.  And that sentence confirmed for me that this year has flown by.

When someone asks you to go to the Virgin Islands for a birthday weekend… You should definitely say yes. Yes, I’ve already posted a ton of pictures of this little trip on Insta. But really, what’s a few more holiday snaps between friends.

DSC_1155We stayed at the Point Pleasant Resort on St Thomas island.The staff couldn’t have been nicer and, as you can see from the picture above, the view from our Villa was fairly amazing. For the exploring part of the weekend we took boats over to the British Virgin Islands, St John and Jost Van Dyke. In writing this I have realised that I’m horrid at thinking of captions, so I’m going to let the pictures do the talking.
