Baby girl is leaving the little paradise that she called home for the past 6-month to embark on a trip that will take her to another island at the antipode. A little less than a month of vacation in her old turf and by her family before going back to her studies in Europe.

It will take her 36+ hours of door-to-door travel time but she’ll lose one day in the process. Leaving St Barth on the 13th and arriving in Singapore on the 15th.

Thank goodness for the modern technology that keep us connected.

Remembering when I left home 29 years ago and my parents had to wait until I had arrived at my final destination to receive a phone call reassuring them that I had made it safely to my destination… at some “stranger” home and a country I barely spoke the language, plus no daily communication either as I couldn’t afford the per minute rate between the USA and France phone call 😱

Last day of daughter’s 6-month internship in St Barthélemy.

What an incredible experience of working in an amazing hotel in such a paradise.

Every good thing has an end.

Bye Bye St Barts. See you soon.

It’s time to say good bye to St Barthelemy. One last look at Gustavia from the lighthouse just before sunset.

See you soon. Let’s hope it won’t take me another 9 years to come back.

One last car ride around the island.

One last trip to my favorite stretch of sand: Gouverneur beach. Soaking up the turquoise color of the water from my little spot in the shade under the tree.

Mesmerized by the view and the boats going by.

Not a bad place to spend the day with a large group of friends.

An amazing villa full of little nooks and with great decor.

When you have friends (well my sister & brother-in-law’s friends!) with access to amazing villas.
