Saba Sandra Lönnig
my island..view from the ferry DAWN II coming from St. Maarten
I used to live on that tiny little rock in the Caribbean between March 2006 and May 2007 when working for Saba Divers and Scouts Place in their office...managing people´s holiday...and fell in love with it.
People are friendly and soon I became part of the community. They used to call me the Saba Newspaper as they got all the gossip live and fresh from the front office along with their Chippie telephone card *inside joke*.
I was lucky to live with the chef, Tjeerd, in a staff house which everyone knew as the Villa Pearl White * famous for the porch parties* and the goats and sheep in front of it.
Well, Saba is famous for diving but besides it has a variety of beautiful hiking trails to offer. Rain forest and breath taking views: thats what I enjoyed every morning before starting my shift in the office...
In the evening you can enjoy barbequed spare ribs and chicken from Eddie and Pat in Swinging Doors, a drink at the pirate styled bar at Scouts Place or relax at Queens Garden and Gate House restaurants with good wines and entertaining staff.
I will return there soon as I
Diamond rock..view from Northcoast trail
