I have no idea where the time went. It feels as though it was just a few months ago, that I was wracking my brain for the perfect name for my blog. I guess I can chalk it up to ‘Time Flies When You’re Having Fun’. I’ve been through quite a lot during that time, and I’ve enjoyed sharing my life with you, my readers.
We’ve been on quite a few adventures together. Let’s take a quick look at what we’ve been through for the past 36 months:
We stuffed our faces and drank quite a few beers while traveling through Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia & Malaysia.
We then flew to Europe and admired the stunning architecture which varied from city to city, and country to country:
After jaunting through Europe, we took a well deserved break… before sailing the Caribbean Sea on a 40 foot yacht!
Did some local travels in my home country of Antigua… (mostly beaches and more beaches..!):
Then I took you guys with me to Trinidad and Tobago for seven months while I studied abroad!
Soon, After I took a trip to Venezuela… My very first South American Country. I can’t wait to go back to the Continent!
I then returned to Europe where we visited Italy for a second time, a quick stop in London, before crossing the Atlantic to Canada and Miami. Which brings us to 2014, which saw us battling massive snow storms in New York and meeting my godson in Grenada for the very first time.
I am really happy to have connected with you guys, whether by your many comments (over 600!) or the countless ‘likes’ on my posts. The journey is far from over, so I hope you’ll stick around for the ride! Thanks, thanks, and many thanks!!!
Last month, I made a quick journey to the Spice Island of Grenada in the Southern Caribbean. My very first Godson lives there, and it’s been 3 months since he was born. It was definitely time for me to meet him. I packed my bags the night before, and woke up at an atrocious hour in the morning for my flight down South. I had a bit of a delay in Barbados, but I luckily arrived at my destination only 2 hours later than originally expected.
It was so wonderful to see my best friend Rockebah and her gorgeous bouncing baby boy, Jaquawn. He stole my heart in a few seconds flat!
Grenada isn’t your typical Caribbean island. While there are a few lovely white sand beaches, most of its beauty is found within the center of the island. There’s a massive rainforest inland, with glorious green foliage and rolling hills as far as the eyes can see. It’s no surprise that Agriculture is a dominant industry there! The tiny roads wind through the countryside, with countless bends, ascents and a few steep descents. It was quite a stark contrast to my home island of Antigua!
Grand Anse beach is the most popular seaside spot in Grenada. The sand was gloriously golden, the water was a beautiful blue and the salty crisp sea breeze was stimulating. I took a quick dip in the water then retreated to a beach bar for a couple of drinks.
The next day, we went on a road trip through the island. I visited the Annadale waterfalls and Lake Grand Etang. These natural attractions were pretty amazing and well kept.
I’m definitely returning to this spectacular island by the end of this year! Grenada deserves more than just a whirlwind weekend trip and I’d love to see my lil’ man start to creep/crawl. I can’t wait!
