When all you need to maintain the Dot Com lifestyle is a laptop and/or smartphone and an online connection, the world is your office.
And it should be.
After you made the commitment to take action as an e-commerce entrepreneur and had the discipline to stay with it, you should spend some of the time you’ve regained by exploring all the globe has to offer … without needing VR.
Sooner or later, you’ll want to fit in a serene trip to the Caribbean, for a variety of awesome reasons. Here are just a few:
- The weather … with 70°F/21°C lows and 86°F/30°C highs, it’s a 24/7 comfort zone;
- The cultures … influences from Europe, Africa, India and even China;
- The nature … flora and fauna formed from volcanoes; and
- The beaches … an abundance of golden sand and aqua blue water.
And here’s a sampling of islands that are just waiting for you to grace their shores:
25. American Virgin Islands
A destination of choice for cruise ships, these islands are really small. In fact, they’re no bigger than Washington DC.
20. Antigua and Barbuda
Nicknamed the land of 365 beaches, tourism accounts for 50% of GDP while banking and finance account for the other half. Do know that building is not a branch office.
15. Dominican Republic
This is one of only two Caribbean islands that are shared by more than one country: the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
The Dominican Republic is the second-largest Caribbean nation after Cuba, with around 10million people. Combining a vibrant culture with diverse geography, eco-tourism has been on the rise in recent years.
Lying outside of the Caribbean hurricane belt, Aruba makes for an excellent tourist destination.
It’s much flatter than most of its island counterparts and, because it is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the primary language here is Dutch.
5. St Kitts and Nevis
As the smallest sovereign state in the Americas, St Kitts and Nevis was one of the first to be settled by Europeans and has thus adopted the nickname Mother Colony of the West Indies.
Now, you may be asking yourself, where’s Kokomo? It looked quite inviting in the movie Cocktail.
The hard fact is, until the Beach Boys recorded the song, there was no tropical paradise named Kokomo. Afterwards, a couple of private islands took the name. One is actually in Jamaica’s Montego Bay, owned by the Sandals resort chain.
The other is in Fiji. That could well be another luxury vacation you richly deserve.
