Let's learn some stuff.
I've been so fortunate in my life. I've met some really fantastic people, and been lucky enough to grow and learn on each job I take. I've also had the chance to travel to some truly breathtaking places, destinations I'd never even dream about visiting unless my job required it of me. One of the most recent places I visited was a small Caribbean island in the British West Indies, called Anguilla.
So let's talk about Anguilla.
It's a very small island, about a 30 minute boat ride from St. Maarten. It's 35 square miles in total and 16 miles long. It takes about 30 minutes, by car to get from end to end, and the island's main source of income comes from the tourism industry. Anguilla is absolutely stunning. White sand, turquoise water and orange sunsets. The people I met on the island were friendly, always taking the time to say good morning or good afternoon. They'd go out of their way to make sure we had what we needed, and stopping what they were doing to wish us well. The majority of the island is connected by one big road, with two lanes and a couple more stop lights. There are no building numbers, and the street names are very general. We found ourselves referring to locations around the island the way the locals referred to them. The grocery store on the west end of the island, or the cluster of buildings owned by Chris. Everyone knows everyone, and word travels fast.Read More
