About Rhiannon Jorna

A traveller at heart, this landlubber has managed to stay in one spot for five years now. That is because her heart has found a home on one of the smallest rocks in the Caribbean: Saba in the Caribbean Netherlands. Before her 30th, her travels have taken her around Europe, to Australia and New Zealand, Canada, the US, Malaysia, and Thailand. Turning 30 in a big city like Kuala Lumpur made her and her husband reevaluate what's really important and so they meandered their way to this beautiful tropical rock. A childhood dream of hers was to have a portal into a different world where time flows differently, so she could read an entire book, step back into Reality and only 5 minutes have gone by. Let's say she's not quite found the portal, but instead a rock where time takes its own pace. The former concert goer and adamant believer in the power of books has not had one moment of regret of adding her rolling stone to this amazing rock.

Adding to the workload of teaching English language and literature at the high school that consists of fewer than 100 students and the care for a cat and a husband, she now also has the care of her adorable baby twins. When they are not trying to pull the cat's hairs or daddy's beard, their mom tries to find the time to a) soak up the Caribbean lifestyle and b) sleep, which is supposed to come with point a), but somehow never materializes. Now also there is a new point in the line of personal development: c) write about the perks of living on a rock compared to her long ago life. This 'life BS' (life Before Saba) seems a distant past, where the words 'work load' and 'busy' and 'commute' meant something else entirely.

Anyhow, if you're curious about life on Saba and/or with baby twins in the Caribbean, be sure to check in every once in a while to her blog, www.rhiannonjorna.wordpress.com.
