This was more than a vacation. It actually was a double birthday celebration!
We were celebrating my sister-in-law, Ngoc, and cousin-in-law, Kim Oanh, both turning 30!
YES, they were both born on the same day, December 23rd! Kim Oanh arrived during the day and Ngoc came along later that evening.
They call each other “twin cuzzies”. How precious right?!
Khang and I don’t normally prefer beach destinations because we get bored so easily with the sand, but Turks and Caicos was the perfect island for us. Especially with our sweet family!
The thing I love most about TCI is how undeveloped it is.
Now this might sound weird to some, but this means it isn’t littered with highrises (that obstruct views), souvenir shops, and franchises.
Which is the best to me because it keeps the true beauty and upholds the vibrant culture of the gorgeous island territories!
We went to nearly 10 different beach nooks and each one was unique to itself!
We technically went during peak-season, but goshhhh it felt like we nearly had each place to ourselves.
This website was the best source of info for me if you’re interested or planning a trip in the future!
In my opinion, a few absolute musts:
catch the breathtaking sunrises (more than once!),
put your phone or camera down and just take it all in,
dine at Mango Reef Restaurant (black truffle scallops FTW!),
dance your heart out at Danny Buoy’s,
rent a car to get around (big money savings + prepare for left-side driving)
grab a bite and take in the views for an unbelieveable experience at Bugaloos Beach. Y’all, we literally had a table in the water, feet in the sand, and ate conch!
sing “Part of Your World” while searching for seashells!
Just a few snapshots from our amazing trip!
