I have waited for this week to come since my family booked their flights nearly 3 months prior.

This wasn't just a normal family … Continue reading When Family Comes to the Island(s)

"Island Time" has a whole new meaning to me, and I've only been here for a week. … Continue reading The Beginning of My Island Life
