Galveston Island
A vacation favorite
Galveston Island is our favorite place to vacation. The ambiance is great, the people friendly. Very laid back, very Texas, but 'more so'. Something extra.

St. John
Fish Trap, St. John, USVI, has gone downhill badly
Our recent experience confirmed what locals warned us about. Fish Trap restaurant on St. John has gone downhill badly. Dinner took two hours to arrive, no glasses for water, first basket of bread arrived after the first hour, second basket about 25 minutes later. The management was defensive and unfriendly, commenting only that "you did not have reservations," even though half the tables were empty when we arrived.

Welcome to, an interactive website for sharing island experiences and island information, as well as island vacation reviews and travel tips. To view published articles, choose the article from summary lists or headline lists, or use the dropdown menus at the top of the page to select an island.

What is "Island Time"? When we hear that expression used, we are sometimes inclined to think things aren't moving fast enough, but perhaps, we need to move a bit slower ourselves. When we travel, we can have a much more pleasant time if we adopt a "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" approach to life. If things move a bit slower, and we slow down ourselves, we are able to participate and communicate with what is going on around us. The "Island Time" Category is for general comments about "Island Time", and each island may have its' own variation.

Tropical islands may be the starting point of the website. However, any island is fair game, even Coney Island. The Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Gulf of Mexico are broad areas of possible island review and travel tips, but by no means are they regional limits. The islands listed are also intended to be reference points, and not limits. Any island in any body of water, whether ocean or lake or bay is worthy of your review and shared experience. Did you get there by plane, or on a cruise, or did you drive? Did you go shopping, and where? Where did you do your dining? Did you take in the sights and go to the beaches, or just relax? Where did you stay? Do you prefer resorts, hotels or villas, or do you go camping. Was your experience good, or not so good? Do you live on an island? Share Your Experience

If your island is not yet listed, click Add An Island, and choose the category 'Other'. Fill in the 'Other Island Name' field and the 'Other Island Location' field, and proceed with entering your article.
