Antigua is a special place for me as its where my husband and I spent our honeymoon. We flew from Gatwick with British Airways where we had 10 nights at the 5-star Sandals Hotel on all-inclusive basis.
To experience what the island had to offer outside the hotel, we hired a car for a couple of days. We visited some of the 365 beaches, the town of St John's for shopping and culture, Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, Nelson's dockyard for history and Devil's Bridge and Shirley Heights for the scenery. We took a day out to Fig Tree Drive and saw some of the prettiest tropical scenery the island had to offer, whilst stopping off along the way to sample some black pineapple.
The food was tasty and flavoursome. The island specialities such as Jerk chicken, ackee and saltfish were not to be missed, as well the tasty rum.
I can't wait to return one day and experience it all again!
My passion for travel started back when I left school in 1997. I began my journey working at Going Places Travel and then spent over 20 years at Thomas Cook. In recent years I have worked as a Guest Services Advisor for Fred Olsen Cruise Lines.
I have been lucky to visit various destinations over my years whilst working in travel. Ocean cruising is my favourite holiday as it gives you the luxury of a hotel, amazing food and entertainment whilst travelling the world at the same time. Waking up somewhere different every day.
I love working in the travel industry and feel privileged to now be working for Fred.\ Holidays helping to create and get creative with people's dream holidays.
