I was really captivated by the capital city of St. John’s particularly the Cruise port terminal. Everything is so well put-together- “prim and proper” with the highlight being a board walk along the boutiques.
Had the opportunity to experience the Antiguan nightlife which was highlighted by my first time in a strip club….X4 – let’s just say it was quite an experience that can be compared to “Bar hopping”.
P.S – For the past year I’ve been on a little hiatus trying to navigate through life and figure out my next steps.One of those steps has been to be an entrepreneur so I’ve been trying to “set up shop”. On top of that and work, I started back school; so bare with me….
