I am pleased to announce that I have created a brand new category on this blog! As the title of this post reveals, the new category will be called “Incredible Isles.”
Yes, avid reader, I am keenly aware that my list of categories on this blog is proliferating like a family of cabbage patch rabbits. I am trying to restrain myself . . . I really am! I have even considered professional help but I can’t seem to find anyone certified in treating “compulsive category creation syndrome”. The fact that I seem to be the only one afflicted with this malady might explain the dearth of psychiatric specialists in the field.
But enough about me . . . assuming that’s ever possible. Did you know that there are reputedly 180,497 islands on planet earth? Can you name all of them . . . in reverse alphabetical order? OK, neither can I. But I do feel I am safe in saying that not all of them are incredible. As your devoted guide in all things travel, I plan to obviate the need for you to visit all 180 plus thousand to sort out the incredible from the inconsequential. You’re welcome.
As a wily follower of Travel By Terry, you can sit back, relax and have the world’s most incredible isles and their corresponding exquisite resorts delivered right to your doorstep . . . or in this case desktop, laptop or hand held device. Over the course of the next few weeks, months and years (don’t worry, the decade will fly by before you know it), you will learn about exotic locals like Vanua Levu, Fiji and Cap Juluca, Anguilla (Gesundheit!). Not to mention you will discover other places so exclusive they are only whispered furtively among the au courant after a backwards glance as “Private Islands”.
Hawaii? Bermuda? The Bahamas? That’s fine I suppose for the hidebound traditionalists. But if you have even a thimble of Robinson Crusoe’s blood coursing through your veins (or Thurston Howell III, for that matter), those places will never do.
John Maynard Keynes is said to have lamented, “My only regret in life is that I did not drink more Champagne.” I will have failed you if that solemn day comes when you hear God utter an ominous “Check, please!” and your last regret is that you have not visited some of the world’s most incredible isles. I like to think of these outcroppings as precious stones that fell from God’s overturned jewelry chest when He was chortling over our audacious pride. But that’s just me.
You don’t know about the subscription? That comes later when my ineffable charm has the hook firmly planted. Anyway, what could be more fair than that?
So strap on your water wings, you are in for one grand island hopping adventure. In the days ahead, I promise you enough cocktail party fodder to last you a lifetime. Should you want to experience one of these jewels for yourself, we just happen to have a new travel partner who specializes in incredible isles. What an amazing coincidence!
