There’s just something about white sand, turquoise water and a drink with an umbrella that is immediately relaxing. Frankly, I think there’s no better place to spend a vacation than beachside, with nothing to do but soak up the sun for a few days. And when my mom suprised me and my sister with a vacation to Turks and Caicos recently (thanks, Mom!), I immediately began to draw up a checklist to make sure I have everything I need before jetting off to the Caribbean.
