I’ve been a little MIA this week and that’s because a lot has been going on in my life. Last weekend was the NW Food Service Show where my company had a booth, then an episode of Bizarre Foods (in which we were featured) aired on Monday night and today I leave for vacation. The last seven days have been a whirlwind and it’s about to continue for the next seven days.
Anyways, the 37-mile island (which is said to have 37 beaches) is divided up between two countries, half is owned by the Netherlands and the other half by France. This means big casinos, clubs and duty-free shopping on the Dutch side, gourmet restaurants, unpasteurized cheeses and nude beaches on the French side. You can pass between the two countries easily — no need to stop at the border.
Being from Alaska, I am all about as much hot weather as possible so I’m planning to spend as much time in the sun with a cocktail as I can. But, given that we are staying on the French side of the island (of course!), I’m also hoping to eat some really good food!
The internet is said to be shaky there but I’ll try post a bit if I can. Until then, here’s some pictures of vacations past so you can see my current state of mind — which is basically so excited I can barely stand it!
