2 more days in Miami including an epic journey to find Lucia´s to drop off our excess cruise luggage (Thanks for storing our bags Lucia and also for the lovely dinner!). Just a backpack each for the road on from here. Back to basics from this point on - Just like when we met down under!

St Maartin is a tiny island! We rented an old-school Wrangler Jeep to explore(which made Jon very happy!) Half of the island is Dutch and half is French! It has two different accents, two currencies and different architecture styles!

Being a vegetarian sounds good right now! The Art Deco area was my number one place to explore....
