"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds." -Edward Abbey Taken while hiking down to Memaids Chair, an island that boasts a rocky beach that is unique in more than one way. Here at this secluded beach within Botany Bay, you can see waves crashing onto the beach from the left and the right. This is where the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea collide. While not great for swimming, it sure is for exploring! Watch your step though, thousands of hermit crabs live here and it's too hard to know what shells are going to crawl away before you have a chance to pick them up. #islandsocialvi #adventure #islandhopper #globetrotter #jungletromper #turquoisewater #palmtrees #saltybreeze #hammockqueen #frozendrinks #islandlove #pirate #paradise #sunandrum #virginislands #caribbeandream #islandgems #hideaways #coconut #tropical #chasingthesun #islandfever #islandlife #mermaidschair #braincoral #caribbeansea #stthomas

“Travel makes a wise man better and a fool worse.” – Thomas Fuller These critters were captured on the island of St. Thomas, USVI and are frequently bumped into. Iguanas can climb large trees and tower overhead. The darker in color, the older the iguana is. The frangipani caterpillar is by far one of the neater bugs to find on the island though. It eats from the frangipani tree making itself toxic to predators. It's local knowledge that if you sit under the frangipani tree in the rain, its sap will mix with the water and seep from the leaves- burning your skin like an acid. Yet this bug ingests its leaves for dinner and get over 6 inches long! #islandsocialvi #islandcritters #adventure #islandhopper #globetrotter #jungletromper #turquoisewater #palmtrees #saltybreeze #hammockqueen #frozendrinks #islandlove #pirate #paradise #sunandrum #virginislands #caribbeandream #islandgems #hideaways #coconut #tropical #chasingthesun #islandlife #caterpillar #iguana #turtle #frangipani

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves. ” - Henry David Thoreau The Wall of Tears. Taken on the island of Maui in Hawaii during a no doors helicopter experience offered by Air Maui. The lush landscape features 17 waterfalls that seep from the cracks of the stone mountain. Only accessible by helicopter, this adventure is not for those faint of heart. According to local legend, gods poked their fingers into the cliffside to demonstrate the illusion of crying. #islandsocialvi #adventure #islandhopper #globetrotter #jungletromper #turquoisewater #palmtrees #saltybreeze #hammockqueen #frozendrinks #islandlove #pirate #paradise #sunandrum #virginislands #caribbeandream #islandgems #hideaways #coconut #tropical #chasingthesun #maui #hawaii #waterfall #helicopter #walloftears #crying

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Taken in the Hana Lava Tubes located on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Here people can decend to what feels like the center of the earth, marveling at melted rock that resembles chocolate. Lava has carved these tubes creating great caves to wonder and explore. #islandsocialvi #adventure #islandhopper #globetrotter #jungletromper #turquoisewater #palmtrees #saltybreeze #hammockqueen #frozendrinks #islandlove #pirate #paradise #sunandrum #virginislands #caribbeandream #islandgems #hideaways #coconut #tropical #chasingthesun #hawaii #maui #islandlife #lavatube #caveexplorer #caves #explore
