As the rain drips off the fire escape outside my NYC window, I can’t help but feel a bit sad at the fact that a week ago, on this very day, I was sitting on a balcony listening to the ocean water crash against the sandy shore of Antigua as the sun softly warmed up the morning air.
I was in Curtain Bluff, traveling with my dear friend Heather, and I was loving it. Even before we arrived to the resort, as we made our way there, we knew we were going somewhere special. Our driver, Maurice, spoke to us about Old Road, the village connected to Curtain Bluff and about the founder of the resort, the late Sir Howard Hulford. What touched me the most from our brief conversation was the passion and love with which he spoke of Mr. Hulford and his wife Chelle. He was protective and referred to him as his “dear friend”. He spoke of how this man from New Jersey came to Antigua in the 1950s and literally changed people’s lives.

Heather, friend, Travel Writer, and voice of Globetrotting Mama and I had the opportunity to travel together to Curtain Bluff in Antigua this past week. We had a wonderful time. She and I are almost the complete opposite of one another, but it made for such great conversations and we are such great friends, that it was inevitable that we would have a blast.
Our fun started the minute we got to the airport as we waited and waited for someone to meet us to take us to the resort. Turns out, we later found out, that someone had been looking for us the entire time. Little did they expect however, that two ladies with the names Greenwood Davis and Cain respectively, would look, as our driving and new friend Maurice described “two beautiful local girls”.
