Antigua and Barbuda becomes eTN’s latest partner destination for a very good reason. Beaches in Antigua and Barbuda are among the most beautiful in the world, but this doesn’t even get close to the people of this small Caribbean island nation. There are less than 100,000 citizens residing in this country, but more stories to tell. Stay tuned!

Antigua and Barbuda joined eTurboNews (eTN) with Seychelles, Jamaica, Bahamas, Malta, Guam, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Jordan, Ukraine, Montenegro, and Duesseldorf, as its latest partner destination. From rowing the Pacific to astronauts – this is all girls work in this independent Commonwealth country.

The tropical islands of Antigua and Barbuda are located in the heart of the Caribbean about a thousand miles to the east of Jamaica and half that distance from Trinidad on the coast of South America.

Antigua’s shoreline is washed almost exclusively by the Caribbean Sea and is hugged by 95 miles of superb coastline. Her sister Barbuda, is surrounded by protective reefs and features a large lagoon and Frigate Bird sanctuary. The islands are best known for their friendly and welcoming people, pink and white-sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and the most satisfying and enjoyable climate in the world.

Nelson’s Dockyard, the only remaining example of a Georgian fort a listed UNESCO World Heritage site, is perhaps the most renowned landmark.

Antigua (pronounced An-tee’ga) and  Barbuda (Bar-byew’da) is located in the heart of the Caribbean Sea. The twin-island paradise offers visitors two uniquely distinct experiences, ideal temperatures year-round, a rich history, vibrant culture, exhilarating excursions, award-winning resorts, mouth-watering cuisine, and 365 stunning pink and white-sand beaches – one for every day of the year.

Antigua Barbuda is paradise on earth when it comes to travel and tourism opportunities for visitors, but even more amazing are its proud people.

Antigua and Barbuda has more than a Caribbean Travel Story to Tell

There seem to be no limits on what citizens from Antigua and Barbuda can achieve. From now on eTurboNews will be there to tell their story to the rest of the world.

This partnership developed a year ago on July 23, when eTN publisher Juergen Steinmetz and four young ladies from Antigua and Barbuda on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai after they rowed from California to the Aloha State.

41 days, 7 hours, and 5 minutes. It’s how long it took for Kevinia Francis, Samara Emmanuel, and Christal Clashing from Antigua to row 2800 miles from Monterey, California to Hanalei, Kauai (HI) in the World’s Toughest Row. The Pacific is for the daredevils, the live life on the edge, the thrill seekers, Skipper Kevinia said. National Heroes in their Home Country Antigua Barbuda the girls were treated to a tasty Hawaiian home-cooked meal and coconut water on the beach, after surviving on military-style dry food for 41 days. They took a plane home 🙂

Shortly thereafter with two of its own, the twin-island Caribbean nation of Antigua and  Barbuda was over the moon, and excitedly gearing up for one of their greatest adventures in history as Keisha Schahaff and her daughter Anastasia Mayers embarked on a space travel journey, that will see them become Antigua and Barbuda’s first astronauts, and the first Caribbean mother-daughter duo to go to space.

“I am excited eTurboNews will make news from Antigua and Barbuda a priority for our editorial team. Antigua and Barbuda may be small but made so many big headlines in travel and tourism, we see it as an awaking giant of our sector”, eTN publisher Juergen Steinmetz said.” Welcome Antigua & Barbuda to our family!”
