Travel to the Virgin Islands – Episode 181

categories: caribbean travel

The Amateur Traveler talks to Harry Pariser about the Virgin Islands. Harry is the author of Explore the Virgin Islands which just printed its seventh edition. Harry takes about the United States Virgin islands (primarily St Thomas, St John and St Croix) and the British Virgin Islands (primarily Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke). The Virgin Islands offer high end luxury resorts, cruise ships but also camping on a beach. They have gourmet restaurants but also local cuisine like conch salad and john cakes. They offer snorkeling, scuba, hiking or just lying on a beach. They take U.S. dollars and speak English making this and accessible island paradise.

Harry is making his second appearance on the Amateur Traveler. He was also the guest on Travel to Costa Rica – Amateur Traveler Episode 116.

Thank you for letting people know about sleepinginairports.com. I have slept in numerous airports all over the world and rely on this site to give me little hints as to where is the best place to not only find the most comfortable place to have a kip, but also to tell me where I can find an electrical outlet to charge my various devices.
