Never having been to an island, I definitely made sure I was prepared. When it came to packing, it came down to the following:
Looking and feeling fabulous.
It was not going to be too hard - given the size of my closet! I definitely made sure that I had a day and night-time outfit for every day we were there - and me being me - I packed about two extra looks just in case something happened. It's an island and you can never be too sure!
I love my food. Period. I love to eat and I make sure that when I travel, I do my research before hand so I know where I need to go and what I need to try - and then from there, I venture out. This trip was no different.
First thing to pack - bug spray! If there is anything that I learned the hard way from this trip is this one important detail – take bug spray. On the first full day on the island, I was the dish of the day for mosquitoes – and I have the bites to prove it! I learned my lesson that it is an essential part of any hot destination.
