I was born and raised in Barbados, but have been a lifelong traveller until 2012, when I took a siesta from plane rides n’ car drives and began working (mostly) from home. The tempo and scenery change, as well as a fresh start as a new creation, was what inspired me to start this blog.

I moved to a farm beside a lush gully, on the south-east coast of the island and started growing food.

Life went from doing everyday errands with my passport always sitting in my bag, ready for the next booking that came with a plane ticket, fancy hotel room shuttle and stage, to hiking, watching green monkeys breeze in the trees facing the balcony and fishing.

I started to get a l’il antsy about being in one place until I saw it as a welcome opportunity to enjoy slow mornings, learn how to cook, garden and houseclean like it’s nobody’s business.

Now, life on the west is a lot different scenery-wise, with nuff sweet sunsets and a much warmer atmosphere – thankful still!

It dawned on me that a seed of ingratitude was growing in my heart – after all, I live where many save up for a whole year to visit for a week.

Had I gotten used to the turquoise sea of the calmers coasts, melodies of tropical birdsongs, golden sands decorated with beautiful shells and dried sea fans, barefoot walks on the grass outside, coconut and casuarina trees dancing in the fresh air…the sweet aroma of frangipani flowers…the taste of delicious pawi mangoes and roast breadfruit…? 

After travelling to 20+ destinations (so far), it took a minute of feeling a bit claustrophobic ’til I decided to embrace the opportunity and accept the challenge of finding new places and enjoying outdoor adventures on one island. This blog shares some of those moments with you.

Feel free to share the link to a post you like, with a friend who is planning on visiting Barbados.

A lot like to romanticize about Caribbean living, like how many in the region imagine The American Dream. Please be smart and safe wherever you travel.

Bim has its challenges like everywhere has its own set of drama, but the island itself…is so beautiful.

Joy of Gardening

“A garden is a place of growth. It’s a sanctuary, school, supermarket, gym, and at times, a sauna. It’s a space where patience, pro-activity, perseverance and harvest go hand in hand.”
