Island Girl Since:

2019

Originally Hails From:

England

Elizabeth is a criminal barrister from England – if you’re imagining a wig and gown then you’d be right. She met her partner whilst on holiday in Antigua and a few short months later, decided to ditch her career (including the 5am train journeys, the trips to prison cells, and the shouting judges) for a life in the sunshine.
Island life has allowed Elizabeth to regain a completely different work-life balance to living in London. She is a keen sailor and has a passion for the environment, food, and the theatre and opera. She is an avid follower of legal and current affairs, but can also as frequently be found photographing her food (blame a year living in Singapore for that habit), or doing beach cleans to get rid of plastic waste. Elizabeth now spends her days helping her partner run the restaurant he owns, sailing on the weekends, and exploring the “Land of Sea and Sun.” You can follow her island days on Instagram @garcia_e_lj.

If Once You Have Slept on An Island

If Once You Have Slept on An Island

A hundred year old poem that has stood the test of time... If once you have slept on an island You'll never be quite the same: You may look as you looked the day before And go by the same old name, You may bustle about in street and shop You may sit at home and sew,...

Either you are into searching, scouting and finding out new, (yeah, new what??), new everything or you are not. I belong to the first category.  For me part of living on a Rock is embracing the style/ways and quirkiness of that Rock. Having moved to a new Rock a year...
