New York Times Channels Grade School Literature
Last Friday, it was 9 degrees in New York City. That's really, really cold. Way colder than most New Yorkers want to be. So maybe that explains why the New York Times came up big this weekend with a Choose Your Own Adventure guide to the sun, sand and surf in the Caribbean?
The basic idea of the Michelle Higgins article is that whatever you're after--adventure, sailing, passing out under a palm tree with a frou-frou drink in hand--you can find it on one of the Caribbean islands. (Ok, it's true, Terror Island didn't make it into the article.) Admittedly, it's a pretty obvious story, but it brings a couple of interesting twists. Instead of the British Virgin Islands, Michelle recommends St. Vincent and The Grenadines for sailing. Anguilla gets a nod for its cuisine, supplanting Saint Martin-Sint Maarten. And we love the shout out to St. Barts for its five-star celeb stalking scene.
Oh, and one last thing. If you're one of those types who can't be bothered with the Caribbean, the NYT comes through with something completely different. It's a cut-and-dry guide to getting to Greenland. Our advice? Might wait a few more months before choosing that adventure.
