SINT EUSTATIUS (ORANJESTAD) - Sint Eustatius is a Dutch island in the Caribbean. This special municipality has an enormous variation in nature and is worth putting on your bucket list. Marion Schroen has explored the island extensively and shares her passion in the newly published book Hiking on St. Eustatius, English version. June 19, 2021, the book signing took place at the building, formerly known as Mazinga on the Bay, at Oranjebaai on St. Eustatius.

In less than six month the very much wanted translated version in English is a fact. This could not have been possible without the help of all the sponsors on St. Eustatius, private sponsors, and the government.

The book is for anyone who wants to walk or run on this small island and delve into the broader context of this tropical open-air museum, where the past reveals itself with every step.

Whether you are a hiker or an armchair adventurer, a lover of fortresses or nature, come for work or vacation, have an hour or a whole day, are a beginner or advanced; don't pass up the opportunity to experience this impressive beauty and diversity. Marion Schroen is a lover of hiking and running. She knows all the nooks and crannies of the island and makes you a personal participant in the hike-lights of Statia as the island is also called.

The book ‘Hiking on St. Eustatius. A tale of love and friendship’ contains background information about St. Eustatius, describes 22 walks in which the author shares personal stories and gives tips about hiking and trail running in the tropical climate. Free GPS tracks of the routes are also available.

On Sint Maarten both versions will be for sale from the end of June 2021 at the shipwreckshops in the Departure Hall at the airport and in Philipsburg.
