On a whim, I picked up this true story for a light read and I could barely put it down. Everyone knows how much I love vacationing and tropical beaches, as well as cooking and dining at upscale restaurants. So I couldn't have asked for a better pick! Melinda and Bob Blanchard are my new heroes for picking up their successful, city life and moving to Anguilla to start a new calling. By learning the customs, meeting new people and finding their place on this very small island, their story is captivating as they built up a shack to a successful, upscale restaurant that is now known as the best in the Caribbean. I highly recommend this book and anxious to add Anguilla and Blanchard's Restaurant to my next travel destination.
About the Author
Thanks for cruising by! Along with creating this blog style website, I work in an office full-time and as a mom to two energetic teenage boys. With our family's busy work and school schedule, we look forward to traveling during school holidays. Although it seems that our family can never agree on anything, we do when it comes to vacations. We typically end up on cruises or stay at luxury hotels and enjoy upscale dining, beautiful decor, excellent service, and spacious accommodations. However, with a family including two teenage boys, we still need family friendly and comfortable.

I'm already dreaming of the summer, which is my favorite season to travel. Even better, we are going on another cruise! I can't wait to finally get back on a cruise ship with Celebrity Cruises and explore the Caribbean. I'm excited to experience a suite, the suite restaurant Luminae, specialty restaurants and even a hot glass show (how fun is that?!) on the Celebrity Equinox. Plus, we'll arrive a few days early for a pre-cruise stay in Fort Lauderdale. We can't wait!
