Returning Home After 3 Months Abroad
It was an awesome feeling, seeing my country from above as the plane started its descent towards the V.C.Bird International Airport. My friend Vonia was to pick me up from the airport instead of my parents. Why? Simple. My parents had no idea that their only child was enroute back home!
After joyfully greeting Vonia, we sped home after 12am, woke my parents up at that crazy time of the morning to say ‘SURPRISE’! All the planning and secrecy was totally worth it. It feels good to realize how much I was missed. Ok… enuff with the reunions lol.
What did I do in Antigua during my 48 hour weekend stay? Let’s find out!

I then went to the beach for the first time for the Summer with Vonia and her little sister, where I did some water sports including jet skiing and tubing!
Ate a lot of local food at home, and talked for hours with the family. I ate Caribbean Pepperpot, salt fish and chop up, and goat water (pictured below).
Coming back home, even for such a short trip was awesome. I went to church with mom, had coffee with friends by my favourite harbour side cafe, and I bonded with my canine best friend, Chardonnay. Life… sometimes the simple things are all that matter!
