Travel Mission 2K16 Accomplished

So 4 March 2016 I shared my desire to visit 10 new islands this year.  Originally the plan in my head was to visit 6 new caribbean islands; however, I put 10 on my vision board.  Well, as of 6 September 2016, that mission has been accomplished.  I have now visited 25 out of the recognized 34 caribbean islands and can now share my updated ranking of my favorite island.  Please keep in mind that this list is VERY subjective and is based on several factors: fun, cultural enlightenment, easy to navigate (I can walk or take public transportation, do not have to take taxis everywhere), food (especially important for a picky person such as I), great scenery, good accommodations, and the glove effect (does it feel like a place I could call home).  The list will be updated again when I hit 30 out of 34.  Happy traveling!
