|Antigua was the destination of our first winter vacations this year (December 2013). Here we celebrated two family events,
Bernd and Jola's 30th wedding anniversary and Monica's birthday. All four members of our family vacationed
together again after a while. Antigua was the first English settlement in the Caribbean, with English Harbour
sheltering Britain's Caribbean fleet. Thus, Antigua is rich in history to be explored by inquisitive tourists.
Our vacation base was near St. John's, the Capital of Antigua, from where we crossed the island by car and
circumnavigated it by boat, stopping at some of the 365 beaches for a refreshing swim, snorkeling the
coastal reefs and swimming with the stingrays. We took a boat tour to Barbuda, the sister island of Antigua,
to enjoy its secluded white and pink powdery beaches and crystal clear turquoise water for a day.
