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 itsislandtime.com 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.
While the goal of itsislandtime.com is to be fun and informative for the visitor, shared island experiences and island reviews can certainly be across the spectrum, from great to not so great, and article size can vary from brief island travel tips to lengthy and detailed island reviews, complete with pictures and links to other sites.
For places that are not islands, enter the Not An Island section of itsislandtime.com. Click here to share an experience about a place that is not an island.
