My name is Kate. Well me and my family went to the Caribbean last summer and I used to go there as a little kid so I was really excited to be going again. When we got off the plane, we ate dinner with a friend in his little tiny house (it was actually really nice and exotic) and then took a ferry to another island (St. John).

As soon as we arrived, it was raining, so we took a taxi in the pitch dark to the other side of the island, where there were cabins to be rented. When we got there, nobody was still in the registration building, but we finally tracked someone down to get our cabin info (Lucky for us it was the farthest cabin down the beach, and we had all our luggage still.) so we walked a half-mile to the little cabin, exhausted, and set our stuff on the porch. We looked as we came from war, I couldn’t breathe how tired I was. My eyes popped out of tiredness. It was almost 2:00 in the morning and we were very jet-lagged. Unfortunately for us, the cabin was locked! Because I was so jet-lagged and stressed from the walking and dragging of luggage, I nearly broke down right there. And then, my biggest hero, my mom, who was very calm about the whole thing (even though she is NOT a night person and looked really, really tired) walked all the way back to the registration place.


Meanwhile, I was drifting off in the sand and waking up to the irritating bites of bugs every 3 seconds, thinking what ELSE could happen. My dad's back was bothering him so he had to lay on the picnic table and my brother was telling me to shut up because I was flipping out. I had some kind of a panic attack. Finally, my mom returned, cussing, because the people at the registration said she actually hadn't booked the cabin until 10:00 the next morning. Since we couldn't legally sleep in the cabin for another 7 or so hours, we had to make ourselves comfortable outside on the porch to sleep. I luckily found two lawn chairs that might have belonged to the neighbours, but truthfully, at that hour, I didn't care. I would be able to sleep on a rock if necessary! I was THAT tired. My mom and I stretched out as much as possible in the lawn dad kept his place on the table...and my brother lined up a few piles of clothes on the ground and tried to get comfortable.

Imagine the surprise of the neighbours in the morning to find a family snoring in the sand by their front porch! That was one of the worst vacation experiences bug bites that morning had tripled. But, it was a historical day, I will probably retell it to my grandchildren and laugh about everything that had happened that day.
