Good afternoon from Grenada!

Hello! 

I’m in paradise!! 🙂

I’ve been busy settling in so big apologies for no updates lately – but after 5 days on this island I’m ready to keep you updated on everything that I have been and that I will experience; this stay is going to be so great!

I landed in Grenada on Saturday and was welcomed at the airport by Jason and his family; his wife Carly and his three children Marley (6), Nia (4), and Jason (2)! It was great to finally meet all of them and I’m very excited to get to know all them well over the next months.

Leaving Luxembourg round 2 – ready for new adventures!

Grenada is an absolutely stunning island. It is approximately the size of Luxembourg but only has about 110,000 inhabitants. So it’s a bit of everyone-knows-everyone and almost everyone you pass on the street you wave to or honk at because it’s a familiar face. It’s very difficult to explain the landscape and what it looks like here, but hopefully you’ll understand a bit with the pictures I’ll be taking. What I can say is that it’s extreeemely lush and green – it’s a bit like driving in a rainforest (I actually think we drive through some rainforest…).

Jason + co. live in a beautiful house with a stunning view. Where they are staying now is just temporary though because they are building a new house which we will move into in about 7 weeks.

Lush and green Grenada

On Sunday we were celebrating baby Jay’s birthday, which meant I got to meet lots more of the Roberts! They told me about the island and the culture here, and one thing that’s for sure is that everyone is extremely warm-hearted and welcoming!

Pool, sun, and lots of good food – a proper Grenadian lime*

*A Grenadian lime is something they say over here instead of saying ‘hanging out’. So if people get together to hang out they say ‘We’re having a lime’ or ‘We’re liming’! I’m going to try to bring this saying back home 🙂

Jason and Carly took me to a beautiful restaurant on Monday and Tuesday (yes we went twice in a row, haha). Savvy is located on the Grand Anse beach which is the most popular beach in Grenada with stunning white sand and turquoise water! I couldn’t get over how absolutely beautiful it was.

Exercise, eat at Savvy, chill on the beach – repeat!

After 3 days on Grenada I still hadn’t properly gone to the beach, which Jason thought was a disgrace, so we spent a couple hours on Grand Anse on Tuesday 🙂

So that’s a bit of an update from my side of the world, where we’re 5 hours after everyone back home… I feel extremely lucky to be here and to be with such amazing people who are taking very good care of me.

Next week after I’ve settled in properly I will start doing some work here – more on that later!
