My Vacation Recap

Antigua was an amazing experience. It was without a doubt my best 3 weeks ever. It was so good that I gained 5 pounds. I’m almost certain it’s not the pounds I was looking for but nonetheless my belly left very happy.

I had the opportunity to meet new and exciting life long friends and get a nice tour of the island. No matter how many time I’ve been there, there’s so much to see.  Besides the excitement of being in Antigua I finally got time to unwind and take time for myself and reflect on the blessings that keep coming my way.  I have a lot of photographer friends all over the world and I’m blessed to be able to travel several times per year and not have to worry about anything.

My first place I went to was the beach. I was on the market for some ocean breeze.

I will tell you, you’ve never had a mango unless you’ve had one from Liberta. End of story!

Took an adventure tour with one of my friends and we came across an infestation of jelly fish. That really sucked because the water was very warm.

ok this is something I haven’t seen in a very long time. its a cold and refreshing juice in a bag. i’d suggest getting one when you’re there. it’s very hard to find so ask for the bread shop in Piggots village.

time to say goodbye and I didn’t want to. For more travel photos you can click HERE

It’s not everyday you get to visit paradise and not have a care in the world for 3 weeks. I got to do that not because I’m some awesome wedding photographer but because I’m simply blessed. Blessed to have amazing clients and a family that support my dream to be an awesome photographer. With hard work and dedication the reward always pays off 10 folds. There are lots of sessions I didn’t post but may do a followup one at the end of the year to recap. Well thanks for taking time to visit my blog. I hope you weren’t too  bored.
