Saint Bartholemy: Gustavia
Saint Barthélemy – a playground of rich and famous! This island has a long history of being in Swedish possession, hence the capital name – Gustavia, and a Swedish consulate prominently present. Gustavia is located in a protected bay filled with luxury yachts, luxury boutiques, luxury restaurants, and plenty of sun and water. The ridges rise very steeply all around and 3 fortresses stand guard on tops. The roads twist in and out and up and down the Gustavia bay. Picturesque? Yes. Too crowded? most definitely yes. Snobby and stuffy….
