I woke up frightened for my life that I missed my flight already, I immediately got up ran, grabbed my bag, threw clothes on, and went downstairs to see nobody. I remember thinking that they left without me just like the movie Home Alone. I went back upstairs checked my phone and it read 3:30am, my alarm was set for 4:15am. I laid back down in my bed and tried to go to sleep but I couldn’t. I stayed up until my alarm went off 45 minutes later. I couldn’t wait for my first trip outside of the United States. I traveled all around America because of soccer and my family. At the age of 12 I had already visited 23 of the 50 states.

It was a cold, wintery morning, and there was snow resting on the motionless tress. The roads had an inch of very thin snow on them and driving conditions weren’t terrible. The airport from our house is around a five-minute drive, so we got there presumably quick. Once we arrived at the airport I hugged my grandparents and cousins and checked in. There was no lines for anything because it was so early in the morning and we went through security in less than 5 minutes, now all we had to do was wait for our plane to take off.

My mom woke me up with 15 minutes left in the flight to say we were almost there, I looked out the window and all I saw was the wonderful, bright blue color of the Caribbean Sea.

The temperature was 89 degrees and a little cool breeze. The pool was the perfect temperature to cool us off whenever we got too hot. Another thing I would always do when I was too hot, was go to to the bar and get a strawberry daiquiri. My sister was a fan of the piña colada, but I didn’t like them because of the pineapple. I loved the pool, but I thought the beach was much better. You had more room to run around and play sports and do fun activities. My family would always start the day off in the pool then later go to the beach and hangout there until the sun went down. The sunsets were amazing scenes to watch, the colors were sights I had never seen before. Then after watching the sunset we would go out to dinner, and eat the delicious food.
