I knew my boyfriend and I's trip to the Cayman Island's would be a little different than the average tourist experience. We were staying in Old Man Bay at his uncle's vacation home across the island (about 40 minutes away) from the resorts, 7 Mile Beach, and Georgetown.
This turned out to be the perfect escape as my plans for the trip were simply to relax and read on the beach. I hadn't been able to afford a real vacation in some time, opting to cash in vacation days for cash at previous jobs. But the truth is, vacation is a necessary component to self-care and a way to invoke creative thinking and restart your mind.
