Island Anna’s husband’s family is originally from the islands, so they moved to their rock from the UK with their small son looking for a better lifestyle – one that didn’t involve commuting in and out of London. They found it and haven’t looked back. Not quite through thick and thin though, as they’re no longer together. But Grenada and her sister islands, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, are small, so they’re still friends.
She loves the warmth of the people, the free lifestyle, the lack of choice in the shops, the long complex way you have to do things, and the simple way people know exactly what you want without having to say a word. Her favorite island sayings are: “Life nice. No bad days.” and “Doh watch dat, small ting.”
Island Anna has reinvented herself a few times since she’s been here. At the moment, she has a tourist business, a property management business, and works as a freelance web designer in the off season. She also has a newfound passion for writing and is in the midst of a novel – pretty scary, but exciting. Pushing new boundaries, opening new doors. Her dream is to be a published author, and she’s making it happen, one island day at a time.
