Put the Four Seasons Nevis Resort on Your Bucket List – Sandy’s Blog in The Huffington Post

So you know I’ve spent most of the past 10 years based on tiny Vieques Island, seven miles off the coast of Puerto Rico. I’ve come to assume that all the little inconveniences we encounter on my island are the same things that happen all over the Caribbean. I attribute it to #islandlife. But last […]
