The unspoiled queen

Before my brother Carlos and sister Carith left the island in January we squeezed in a trip to Saba - a volcanic island that is only 5 square miles and supposedly has one of the scariest runways in the world.

Carlos was more than ready for this early morning adventure


our little plane

yep, we rode with the pilots

dill up top and daddy down below


enjoying the boat ride back after the best snorkeling trip while living on the island - a shark and turtles were the best part
