The Exchange of it All


This summer I went on a nice trip to Antigua. I had never been before and was excited to go. I’m always down to visit new places. As much as I love a good photo opp or IG flex, what I love most about travel is the exchange of it all. Being somewhere new, with someone new, meeting new people just gives me so much life. I learn so much about myself when I travel. I learn even more about the world when I’m abroad.


Just like my Antigua trip, traveling for me has always been a chance to see how people and societies around the world exist and operate. Living in America is like living in a bubble. Societal norms, food, music, and so many other things are so different when you leave the country. As much as I love the conveniences and over-abundance of America, it’s nice to get away sometimes and see how people around the world exist.


I could go on and on about how many interactions and exchanges I’ve had from every different place I’ve been to. Each story has clearly left a mark on me that I will never forget. As for Antigua, we spent 8 days and 7 nights at The Escape at Nonsuch Bay Resort. It’s a couples only all inclusive property. We went for his birthday and spent a week in paradise. It was also his first time traveling to Antigua, so it was a new experience for both of us.


The trip was amazing. We went kayaking. We took a speed boat to a private beach twice. We took a ferry to Barbuda and spent the whole day on the beach, just the two of us. The highlight of the trip was the floating breakfast and having dinner at the Sheer Rocks restaurant at the Cocobay Resort. By far, it was the most pristine and extravagant restaurant scenery I’ve ever experienced.


I would definitely go back to Antigua and stay at that same resort. The staff was amazing and very accomodating. As usual, I encourage everyone to travel. Don’t let the pandemic discourage you from getting out of the US. There is always more to see and more to learn when you leave these borders.


Love and vibes,
