Welcome to Antigua

Let’s follow Travelista Teri as she travels to Antigua, to discover the culture, lifestyle, and the beauty of the island. She visits the tallest peak, chats with the locals and explores one of the islands 365 beaches. Nice work Teri!

I thought a nice tour of the beautiful island of Antigua would be a nice way to break in a Monday. Just a little something to clear the cobwebs.

    I just returned from Antigua five days ago, and must admit I fell in love with the island. The vibe can not be expressed, the people were so friendly. I hail from Iowa and thought midwesterners were the friendliest people, I was wrong. I can’t wait to go back.

    Thanks for the comment Annette! You are so right, not only with Antigua but with most Caribbean island. The beaches and rum drinks are nice, but it’s the people you meet while on island that make the trip special. Cheers!
