I took a walk today to get some fresh air. I’m not sure if it was the cloudy skies or the day’s drama, but I felt like it was time to escape to the islands. A decompress was needed.

I came home, took Castaway Crystal to watch the sunset by the Sanibel Bridge and then sat down to type of this week’s Caribbean Wrap Up. Sitting here writing about the islands and falling into daydreams every other minute does wonders for the soul. Try it. Give these stories a read and I bet you’ll feel a little refreshed.

Try it.

The Caribbean’s 5 best floating bars: A great beach bar is a must-see item on your Caribbean to-do list. Who doesn’t love a cocktail with your toes in the sand? But if you’re looking for a next-level way to experience island drinks, forget the beach and hop on a boat! These floating bars offer a unique respite from the typical beach bar as they are all only accessible by water. –Story by Virgin Islands Property & Yacht

A how-to Guide to Visiting Cuba that Finally Makes Sense: On March 15, 2016, the U.S. government made another significant change to the rules around people-to-people educational travel. Before the change, Americans were required to be accompanied by a sponsoring organization subject to U.S. jurisdiction. Now, individuals can organize their own people-to-people trips as long as they have a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities. –Story by CNN Travel
