I've recently become fascinated with the idea of chartering a boat and sailing around a chain of islands. From what I've read, the British Virgin Islands is a great place to start for this type of an adventure as it offers amazing sites and beaches to visit and the navigation from island to island is fairly straightforward, suitable for novice sailors. I mean, wow, just look at these pictures and imagine being the captain of your own ship, spending a week or two island-hopping from beautiful beach to beautiful beach. Take. me. there.
