One of the biggest thrills I get is when Castaways like yourself share with me your Caribbean and rum adventures. Nearly every day I receive a photo of a beach, asking me about a bottle of rum, or showing me that you’re living with your toes in the sand.
I’m floored that you remember to think of this humble website, and honored that you want to share it with me and other salty island lovers. What started as just a simple twitter account over 6 years ago has grown into an amazing community of passionate island travelers. It just goes to show that if you really put your mind to it, you truly can do anything, and go anywhere. That’s why I use the hashtag #JustGo.
Stop wishing, put your mind to it, and #JustGo.
Here are some great Caribbean travel stories that hopefully will inspire you to…just go.

A Short Look at a Long Cay: We spent a couple of weeks anchored in Cockburn Harbour, over on the far side of this little tropical island nation.

Our previous post has some photos of the trip, and our first couple of days at South Caicos. –Story by 2 Gringos in the Caribbean
