We’ve been living in Martinique Island for quite sometime.
How it was?
Although it was pretty rough at first because of the spotty internet connection, but as the infrastructure started to mellow out and things became more regular, we couldn’t have asked for a different place. It really is an amazing place to live because each and every day is an adventure, each and everyday you get to look outside your villa and check out some amazing ocean views and there’s a lot of sun throughout the year. There’s something truly alive that grows inside your heart when this amazing combination of sun, open space, fresh air and new possibilities combine together. If you’re looking for a place to recharge your emotional, spiritual and physical batteries, this place should be at the top of your list, and that’s not a brag.
Living in a place that is very urban gives a lot of stress, a lot of traffic, pollution and people are obviously so fixated on the day to day trials and tribulations of life. All those commotions suck out your creative impulses and poison other people’s emotional and spiritual batteries and it becomes too much for you to handle. You need a personal detox and this means going on a vacation. The problem is you’re going to a vacation to a postcard, you have these preconceived ideas, you walk around, try to meet people, eat at certain places but you’re trying to recreate your preconceived notions of what that place is about and what your place in that place should be.
Tourist vs. Traveller
That’s wrong. This is why a lot of people end up being tourists without traveling. There’s a big difference between a tourist and a traveler. A traveler seeks to transcend the old, the regular, the tried, the proven, the routine. A tourist on the other hand is simply just a a person who is looking to get from point A to point B because they have some sort of checklist. When you travel to Martinique Island, you can have but become a real traveler.
Become a better person
This means you transcend spiritual bounds, you transcends emotional arrangements that often produce a lot of stress. You start looking not only in the physical world around you, but also in your inner world with a fresh set of eyes and a fresh heart. The only surprise when you come back is that you become a better person. We can’t guarantee it, but there’s a higher chance that when you travel to Martinique, that will happen.
The unfamiliarity of Martinique is its biggest draw. It is not more of the same. It is not a tired worn out fixture on the beaten path of global travel. Instead, it is relatively unknown. The new kid on the block. The new contender. In other words, your mind is less likely to be closed to the things you can do here and the places you can explore. No wonder more and more travelers are checking out our island. You’re invited to come check what we’re all about.
