Downtown in Dutch St. Maarten

After docking the ship and clearing Immigration, Vonia and I left the crew at the yacht marina and took a local bus to go downtown Philipsburg, the shopping central of St. Maarten. For such a tiny island, there was quite a long line of traffic, so getting from one place to another took quite a while. Eventually we arrived in town, and we spent the day wandering through the stores on the famous Front Street and Back Street. Shopping was hard work, so after we bought everything on our list, we kicked back at The Blue Bitch Bar for a bit. Interesting name for a bar don’t you think??? Enjoy the photos!

Stuffing my face!

After a great day, we headed back to the yacht and sailed home! Ship Ahoy!


About Jodi

I absolutely love to travel. Most days, it's hard to focus on anything else. However, I'd like to change my travel style from now on. I have always been a 'safe' traveler, with hotel reservations made, cruise vacations and a set timetable. I want to break out of that habit, and become an independent backpacker. This blog will serve to document my aspirations to experiment with traveling solo, around the world!

  3. St. Marteen looks like a really nice place. I’ve been to Bonair and it has bit of the same feeling. Great photos and like you say Blue Bitch Bar is a perfect name.

    • I’ve always wanted to visit the ABC islands as we call them in the Caribbean. Yeah, that bar name was very memorable 😀 Thanks for reading!
