I often hear comments like, “I wish I could go there,” or “It must be so great to travel to XYZ island.” My answer to these questions is just go. Plain and simple.

I hope the following stories inspire you to stop wishing and sink your toes into the soft white sand of the Caribbean island of your dreams. It might just change your life.
