Sometimes You Just Need to Drive on the Wrong Side of the Road

hold on y'all!

Can you see Martin back there?

“I want to stay down here in the Caribbean sun, drive a little while on the wrong side of the road. Get this laying low off to a flying start.” –Kenny Chesney

We have all felt that stir crazy feeling.  You need to go and need to go now! The sun and beach bed calls to me about every month and a half. My sweet hubby doesn’t understand that it is rude not to answer when a beach bed calls. HaHa

When you finally get that chance to go, live a little.  Take a tour of the island with a local. Do what they do, eat where they eat.  They have a passion for the destination they call home and can’t wait to share it with you.  And if you are lucky, they may sing for you along the way.  Let’s face it island people are happy and very entertaining!

ATV tour took us to the highest part of the island.

While in Antigua last month we did the ATV tour offered thru Island Routes at our Sandals Resort.  It was a great opportunity to see the island and it’s scenic areas.  Also, it filled my need to drive on the wrong side of the road.  We were given a quick lesson on the ATV’s (most of us knew what we were doing but others did need it) and we were off. Traveling from the North East of Antigua on old cane roads, passing through old estates and rural farm lands to arrive at the the historical Monks Hill overlooking the scenic harbours of the South Coast with neighboring islands on the horizon. This is the ultimate riding experience traveling along dirt tracks and animal trails, while enjoying the natural beauty of the island’s interior.

If you are comfortable with renting a car- DO iT and experience driving on the left side of the road. If that seems impossible, do an ATV tour.  You will see parts of the island that is not accessible by car. Isn’t that what everyone one wants?  Something that you don’t do everyday?

Hard to drive and snap pics.  Sorry for the poor quality.

Loved it.  I had to tell them "Mind your momma and read your Bible." Why ?? I don't know it was one of those things I knew I would regret not doing when I got home.

Passed these kids playing cricket in their front yard. Loved it. I had to tell them “Mind your momma and read your Bible.” Why ?? I don’t know it was one of those things I knew I would regret not doing when I got home.

The Houston Bridal Extravaganza

WOW! What a wonderful show.

We met so many neat brides. It is always interesting to hear a wish list for honeymooners and Destination Weddings.

We are offering many specials and invite you to call for the details. Don’t forget we have the $100 Gift Certificate offer going on till 8/15/2014.

The show was hard work to get set up seeing Launa and I were both out of town with in the 2 weeks before the show. The booth came out great and we are excited to be working with brides and grooms for the perfect honeymoon or destination wedding.

One of my favorite things that happened at the show was this. I was talking to a bride and groom about a Destination Wedding. One of the first and most important questions is, “will you have kids attending your wedding?” I don’t know what he was thinking but he responded with, “well they won’t be born yet? We are going to have kids but in a couple of years.” Judging from the look on my face he said, “ok, I don’t think I understood your question?” We had a good laugh and I am now working to get the Destination Wedding of their dreams in motion.

We had Valeria from the Karisma Resorts come and help us out a couple of minutes. Brides were instantly amazed at the tropical setting they offer.

Thanks to everyone that came by our booth. It was nice to meet so many nice people and to say hi to all the brides, grooms and moms!
