Antigua (pronounced An-tee'ga) and Barbuda are located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, roughly 17 degrees north of the equator.

Sometimes paradise can be found through tragedy - came across the name of the Antigua island from reports of a ferry collision in Italy.

"A passenger hydrofoil and a cargo ship have collided near the Sicilian port of Messina in Italy, killing at least four people and injuring dozens."
