As a black woman living in the United States, 2020 has been particularly stressful and exhausting. Additionally, one of my mechanisms for coping with stress and finding joy in the world – traveling – is no longer something I can do. So instead, I’ve found new stress relief methods, while bringing travel home to me,Continue reading “A Simple Treat (For May 2020)”

But, I will likely keep tinkering with things over the next few months. My other update is I will be posting about once a month until the endContinue reading “Site Updates and Quarantine Activities”
This is the final post in my 2020 March Madness series. For my final blog post, I’m talking about things to do in St. John, Antigua.
After returning from my solo trip to Antigua, I realized that I had a good amount of footage of my glamping tent and decided to make a vlog.
Have you ever wanted to go camping? Have you ever wanted to go glamping? Have you ever wanted to pack your things and go on a solo vacation? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is a blog post for you!
I took a solo trip to Antigua at the beginning of March 2020. As I browsed for activities and restaurants to try, I kept two travel goals in mind.

I was toying with an idea before the Coronavirus shutdown and have decided to go ahead with it now that many people are home, and bored. Next week will be my version of March Madness. I will have a new blog post EVERY DAY at 5pm. I hope that a little lighthearted reading will be a momentary distraction from the world falling apart. For anyone who has checked out of traveling for the moment, no worries. VoyagesofTea.com will be here when you’re ready to think about that again. Wishing everyone as much safety, health, and stability as possible until this passes. – Tea
