5 Things To Do In Montserrat

Hey Guys!

As promised, here is my third post in relation to my travel weekend for Easter (First, Second).Β Known as The Emerald isle of the Caribbean, Montserrat provides nothing but lush surroundings, perfect for relaxing or exploring. These are five activities I would suggest to keep you active during your stay. However, I’m pretty sure you can find many others around the island.

Weekend Getaway // What’s in my bag?

Hey Guyyysss

Guess what’s this weekend……..Easter “holiday”

That means it’s a long weekend (no work Friday and Monday). However, that doesn’t matter to me, but for those employed *yay!*
This is my first Easter weekend being home since 2012; usually we (my family and I) go camping on one of the neighboring islands. However I felt like doing something different this year, so my best friend and I decided to go to Montserrat!
It was probably her idea initially and I just jumped at the opportunity. =)

Sunday Funday // A Beach Photo Diary

Hey Guys!!

Look what made a comeback, yep #SundayFunday. I’ve been inside quite a lot these past few weeks, but I made it outside yesterday! Just like most of my other Sunday adventure posts, I made it to the beach; well more specifically, Maiden Island.

Maiden Island is a small offshore island about 10 minutes by boat from Antigua (depending on where you’re departing from). You can walk around the island and see different views, some of Antigua, Jumby Bay ( a popular Rosewood Resort) and another offshore island in the distance. One side of the island has a dock for access onto the island; this side is also preferred for swimming activities. The other side is usually windier and surrounded by seaweed.

Caribbean Bucket List

For the new year “As Told by Ali” will be making some changes all in hopes of getting better.

Therefore, since part of my blog is about adventure you may have seen a few #SundayFunday posts where I go out and enjoy all my island has to offer. My life long goal like everyone else is to travel the world and learn as much as I can about each country.

There are 196 countries in the world; not limiting myself I decided that it would be a great idea to explore my own backyard ~ The Caribbean Region ~ as well.

The islands which make up the region can vary greatly, but to me I consider anything touching the Caribbean sea as a Caribbean island. As beautiful as my own island may be it’s always nice to see what makes other islands just as spectacular. I tried my best to shorten my list, so here are my six main places that I would love to visit *in no particular order*:

Sunday Funday // Happy New Year

Hey Guys!!

How cool is it that New Year’s day falls on a Sunday? Not only do we get an extra day for a holiday, but it just makes the celebration even more worth it. Before we get into my first adventure of the year…..

Sunday Funday //Boat Party

It’s now a given that my Sundays are meant for being on the water. Last Sunday I got invited to a boat cruise as a celebration for a friend of a friend’s birthday. I agreed to go as it was a long weekend and I had nothing else planned.

The boat was set to leave at 10:30 a.m. SHARP but as typical Antiguan (Caribbean) people we left sometime after 11:00 a.m. On our departure out of the harbor the water was a bit choppy so the ride wasn’t as enjoyable.

My favorite part about this boat was the fact that their was a top deck.  It was practically the worst area to be with all the rocking, but it had the best views. We ventured west of the island passing various popular beaches as well as the hidden gems. We continued heading around the island until we got to the southern part seeing areas such as Jolly Harbor and Hermitage Bay.

After making a U-turn we ventured back to a hidden beach which we passed on the way. This beach seems only accessible by boat unless you do some extreme hiking through the bush. I believe its name is Pinching Bay.

The water was nice and shallow, as well as pretty clear. There was food, drinks, music and some pretty cool people, what more can you ask for?

In all the day was pretty awesome and I couldn’t catch myself Monday morning for work *oops*. But as they say, “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.” So let’s see how that goes!

Sunday Funday – Boatin’

Last Sunday was one of my most adventurous days since I’ve been back home. Not only was it last-minute and totally unplanned, but it was worth every second.

First and foremost it was my best friends birthday (Woohoo); so we had lunch then another one of her friends asked if she wanted to come boating *and I totally invited myself*. We left from one end of the island to the complete opposite, about 45 mins the most.

The views were amazing and unfortunately I lost my photos *thanks snapchat*, however I’ll share these.
