The Virgin Islands are simply breathtaking. To me, they are one of the most picturesque places in the Caribbean. St. Thomas, St. John, Jost Van Dyke, and other surrounding islands look like mountain tops, peeking out of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Homes haphazardly cling to the steep cliffs and hills, often times looking like they are stacked on top of each other. Makes you wonder how tricky it must be to construct them. The water is clear, tropical fish are abundant, and you never know when a sea turtle may pop its head out of the water next to you. Without fail, the “We should open a beach bar here” conversation takes place, as the beach bum, “shoes-optional” lifestyle always seems to attract me. The USVI and BVI are places I would not have a problem calling home.
Here’s what the Virgin Islands looked like through my lens last week.
