Man I need a vacation! Everyone that knows me knows that 🙂 Unfortunately the much needed rest is not coming until late-June— but what a trip it will be: we’re going to Iceland! In the meantime here’s some pictures of one of my favorite vacations to date- to Vieques- a small island off the east coast of Puerto Rico. We stayed at the W Resort– a beautiful property that borders the northern coast of the island. It was absolutely amazing– we had practically the whole resort to ourselves when we went in April 2010. Beautifully designed furniture by Patricia Urquiola was everywhere to be seen. The pools were immaculate and spotless. Just thinking of this place is helping me relax…..

Even though Todd and I did spend quite a bit of time at the resort, we did end up renting a Jeep to explore the rest of the island as well. We visited the cities of  Isabel II and Esperanza. We swam in the Bio Bay with thousands of micro-organisms that glowed whenever you disturbed them with your movement. We found deserted beaches and wild horses. It was a nice place to vacation- the island is very lowly populated and mostly unknown or unthought of by most tourists. A hidden gem!
