This Year's Top 10 Things to make your St. Barth Vacation Better than ever in 2014


What is it about St. Barth that we made our 23rd trek there a couple of weeks ago?   Were it not a very misguided decision to try Nevis about 5 years ago, we’d have an unbroken string of March vacations on the island dating back 20 continuous years. We can’t stop ourselves.  We simply love the place.  We get off the plane after its harrowing flight from St. Maarten, and we are instantly home.  Within 24 hours, we can’t remember how long we’ve been there.  We’re swept away to an island that only seems to get better year after year.

15 Things you must eat in St. Barth, FWI

MARCHE 'U' NOW FULL OF FRESH VEGETABLES
We’re back!  We’ve just concluded our 18th visit to one of our favorite places on earth, St. Barthelemy. That little 8 ½ square mile slice of France plopped down in the middle of the Caribbean Sea but so different from the rest of the West Indies, it might be on another planet.  St. Barthelemy never disappoints.  In fact, I would actually say it improves with time.  At the moment, a public works project is making the formerly terrifying roads heaven to drive. All kinds of roundabouts have made traffic, what there is of it, much easier to negotiate.  And not just the roads have improved.  The food has gotten better!  How can that be?  Well, not too many years ago, we remember spotting Orange Juice in the Match Super Marche.  There seemed be a huge supply so we decided to pick it up later.  There was no later. The last we saw of orange juice on the island was that one day. It was delivered once a week and if you missed it, you missed it. Now, a French chain called “U” runs the SuperMarche.  It is positively packed with fresh produce, wonderful charcuterie and sensibly priced wines and an unending supply of Jus d’Orange.  Now I am going to highlight the highlights of our Gastronomical adventures in paradise. But first, I have to pause to dedicate this post to Gil, Andrew's father.
