Look: Barack and Michelle Obama Appear Fresh-Faced and Relaxed on Vacation in British Virgin Islands

Enjoy it, but come back soon.
  • After leaving Trump's inauguration, former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama were spotted vacationing in the British Virgin Islands

    Barack and Michelle Obama arrived in the British Virgin Islands on Monday night, after flying on billionaire Richard Branson's plane. 

    The above photo is of the former first couple posing with staff at Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport, the islands' main airport. 

    The Obamas look happy and relaxed surrounded by the  immigration officials and the local police commissioner.

    After the photo, they were then driven away in a motorcade, which took them to a boat. The small boat whisked them away to Branson's private retreat, Necker Island. 


  • In lieu of recent events, many wonder when they will be back to help us through this hot mess

  • But we all agree that if anyone deserves a vacation, it's these two

  • Commenters on Instagram very badly want the Obamas to return (or at least take us all with them)
