Jake Rosenberg’s latest trip to St. Barths involved matcha coladas, turquoise waters, and the villa of our dreams. In collaboration with TUMI.
If there’s one well-known fact about our co-founder and creative director, Jake Rosenberg, it’s that he travels a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. His IG is brimming with photos of boarding passes, and we’re constantly wondering when he even finds the time to swap out his suitcase contents before hopping on the next flight.
Most recently, the day after returning from a nine-day trip to Koh Samui, Jake packed up a few white linen shirts (because island life), his usual go-to white and black t-shirts and a few pairs of sandals and loafers into his TUMI 19 Degree luggage and headed to the magical island of Saint Barthélemy (St. Barths for short). “I travel all of the time, and this flight is always something I’m excited for,” he said of the flight over. “I always know it’s going to be a little bit insane because it’s a small 10-passenger plane.” For the next seven days, Jake hopped around the island shooting content for the site (stay tuned!), visiting multiple beaches and trying out the local cuisine—word is that the local Mahi Mahi is a must-try if you ever go.
One quick flip through Jake’s iPhone album from the trip and it’s pretty clear that everyone needs to add this luxurious island to their travel bucket list. “I couldn’t have been more sad to leave the island. It becomes this little exclusive community of people that come back every year.” Fresh seafood, turquoise-colored waters, insane views, and a beach covered in shells—we dare you to give us a reason not to go.
