Watch: Sights & Sounds Around Sint Maarten, Businesses are Open, People are Smiling Again

It’s been a long road, my friends. And there’s little doubt that there’s still a long way to go. If anything has become clear over the last seven weeks, it’s just how important those special moments with friends and family really are. No one knows when disaster will strike, and that’s just part of life. So while we’re here, we appreciate every moment and make the most of them all.

Videos like this are so great to see, to know that the island of Sint Maarten is well on it’s way back. And honestly, when I see videos like this, they just make me yearn to be back on the Friendly Island again soon. Every day that passes brings your next trip to Sint Maarten that much closer.

Special thanks to the people of for producing this incredible video!

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
