St. Maarten trip report - the intro!

My wife and I just got back from our first trip to the Caribbean - our 10th anniversary gift to ourselves. We picked St. Maarten because it's got all the stuff the islands are known for - the beaches, the perfect weather, the palm trees - but also this:

There's nowhere else in the world with a view like that. I'm kind of an airplane geek, so with no other really obvious differentiator between islands, this clinched it. And a lot of other people go there for the same reason, as we discovered. I'll be writing a post just on planespotting there in the next couple days.

I've got a few other things to write about too, and a lot of pics (and a few videos) to post! Rather than write a couple of really long-winded posts on multiple subjects, I've decided to break it down into bite-sized chunks - you know, like a blog. So while I don't think this is going to turn into one of my monster Japan trip reports (activities in St. Maarten generally fall under either "going to the beach" or "eating"), sit back and enjoy whatever I end up spitting out. If you're planning a trip yourself, maybe you'll even get some useful info out of it. It's a great place, and I wish I was still there!

Oh well... another Japan trip's coming up in 6 weeks!

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
