Honeymoon Surprise!

30 Apr

Antiguan Escape

Not many people knew this unless they asked, but I never knew where I was honeymooning until my wedding night. In an effort to reduce stress and give my husband-to-be some wedding planning duties, I let him plan the honeymoon.

The night of our wedding reception, Cyrus revealed we were headed to Antigua!  It’s an island in the West Indies in the Leeward Islands region of the Caribbean.

Following our big day, we jetted off to the tropical escape. I have been to a few spots in the Caribbean, but nothing quite like Antigua. Right from the start, I was drawn to its lush landscape and unique flowers combined with beautiful beaches set against a mountainous backdrop.

There’s also rich history in Antigua. In addition to our lazy beach days, snorkeling and sailing, we ventured out to take a three-hour tour of the island with a native. We visited several historic locations along the way, including Nelson’s Dockyard and Shirley Heights.

We can now check one more place off our bucket list of places to visit!

See you in the morning!
