In my years of travel the one thing that will go wrong when everything else is perfect is ground transportation. Don't know why that is but it is definitely a rule for me. Once I am in the ship I can vegetate before I have to work AND I can walk to the theatre. But until I am in my cabin and looking back on Fiji there will be some anxiety.
Because it is important to me, over the years I have developed a relationship with several of the drivers on various Caribbean islands. Jamacia George is my favorite. Obviously a driver in Jamaica. He has been driving for RCCL for 20 years or more. I am always glad to see his face at the airport or the dock. I know he will get me to my next destination.
Rory in St. Martin is the other driver that is always there for you, also driving for RCCL more than a decade. He had a Cadillac stretch which created a lot of attention on the island. It might have been the only one on St. Martin. The last time we met he had an Escalade, still a lot of attention but a different kind. In addition to being a driver he is also a personal body guard for celebrities who visit St. Martin.
He is cut like a Greek statue and extremely strong. You never worry when Rory is your driver.
The internet is about to turn off unless I pay for another day so I will publish and move on to my career as a sailor.
