Originally Hails From:

Cayman Islands

Chelsea comes from the island of friendly stingrays, powdery beaches, top notch cuisine, epic scuba diving, and all-you-can-drink brunches. Growing up in the Cayman Islands sounds like a dream, but she always wanted to see what city life was all about. She got her wish for a total of 8 years when she pursued her Kinesiology and Physiotherapy degrees in Canada and Scotland, respectively. She never stayed away from Grand Cayman for long as her regular school breaks allowed her to come home for every roasting summer and breezy winter.

When she finally left Glasgow in 2013, she dove headfirst into the work hard, play hard mentality of island life and has never looked back. She’s a full-time physiotherapist, but is also passionate about promoting Cayman’s culinary scene through her food & travel blog, Island Epicurean. Chelsea uses her Caribbean and worldly upbringing to share stories about the quirks, drama, and hilarity of life in the Cayman Islands. You can also find her on Instagram.

In Praise of Real Food

In Praise of Real Food

Island food culture is a wonderful riot, to be savoured and enjoyed. When we first came on island I was surprised by the food fusion between American, British and Caribbean fare. You would easily find an overblown pot of peanut butter alongside a similar-sized jar of...

How To Be An Annoying Tourist

The cruise ship horns are blasting. The streets are bustling with wide-eyed people donned in Hawaiian print. The smell of aerosol sunscreen spray fills the hot tropical air and stings your eyes. This can only mean one thing...peak tourist season is upon us. The...
