We arrived at our destination: Sailview Villa, St. John, USVI!
Portland is not a vacation transportation hub. Direct flights to Hawai’i, Amsterdam, and Chicago are good to have, but here’s how we got to the Caribbean: Streetcar to coffee shop. Light rail to PDX. Boeing 737 to SFO, Boeing 737 to Newark, Boeing 737 to St. Thomas, “Taxi” (shared van with other stops) to Ferry, Ferry to St. John, rental Jeep to villa.
Great dinner last night at a local spot: Acqua Bistro. Ready for several days of sun, heat, snorkeling and hiking on an island and sea that consist mostly of a National Park and reserve areas.
