If you’re a regular follower of our blog, you know how much we love seeing the cool places where ONA bags go with our awesome customers. Our team also loves globetrotting with our own ONA bags: last month, founder Tracy Foster and her husband spent seven nights soaking up some sun, and enjoying the serenity of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.
Sometimes you just need to unwind. That was exactly the plan when we booked a seven-night trip to Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. There were no detailed itineraries, no major sites to see, no reservations scheduled – just the loveliest beaches, blue skies, and regular visits to the local ice cream shop.
We stayed at a gorgeous property with private beach access in Spanish Town. Since we visited during the low season, all of the beaches were quiet and perfectly secluded, just the way I like them. Savannah Bay, pictured below, was my favorite beach on the island; we made sure to visit daily with beach chairs and books in hand.
I traveled with my Camps Bay camera backpack, which has been my companion on many adventures since 2011. Since I only packed one camera and two lenses for this trip, there was plenty of room in the Camps Bay to carry other things as we traversed the little island -- a few snacks and drinks, beach towels, a sarong, and even a couple of seashells that I collected along the way.
Normally, even if I love a new place that I’ve visited, I’m reluctant to plan to go back (anytime soon) just because I feel more inclined to experience someplace new. It looks like Virgin Gorda may have changed that. I’d go back in a heartbeat.
Our week in Virgin Gorda was exactly what I needed: it was quiet, refreshing, and truly the perfect place to just unwind.
