I have to travel a lot for work during the "trough periods", but until now it has all been domestic. Well next week I have to do a multi-city trip (as usual) to audit 3 stations, and they are all international. I have to say, I'm a bit nervous but excited too LOL!
Anyhoo, here is how my flights/schedules are lined up:
20-SEP: JFK-BGI (B6), work @ BGI, head over to the hotel grab a nice dinner, R.O.N.
21-SEP: BGI-ANU-SKB-SXM (LIAT), work at SXM, head over to the hotel (THE SONESTA!!! YAY!), chill at Maho, R.O.N
22-SEP: SXM-ANU-SLU (LIAT) then SLU-UVF via ground transport. Work @ UVF, head over to the hotel, have a nice dinner, R.O.N.
23-SEP: UVF-JFK (B6)
Now, the entire thing about taking multiple flights, etc. doesn't bother me much. I am more worried about getting around, currency, possible language barriers, etc. I will need taxis at all 3 airports to get to the hotel so I probably have to pay that in cash. Should I bring cash with me and change it out there at a currency exchange or do I take $$ out of an ATM there in their currency or do they take USD? How expensive will these taxi rides cost (I am staying close to all 3 airports). Has anyone made the journey from SLU to UVF before...and how much does THAT set you back? Are there any language barriers (I'm thinking probably not since there are a lot of US tourists going to those islands). Any good places to go see or eat that you can suggest?
Basically I try to have as much fun as possible during my down time on these trips as long as I have the energy for it...but then again a nice tropical beach sounds good to me right now LOL!
Thanks for your help!
