Grenada

Island Girl Since:

2010

Call me Cruella de Vil

I want to talk to you guys about the one time I "kidnapped" a dog and how I think I'm paying for it in Karma. Taking a brief trip into yesteryear, there used to be a bar and restaurant right next to the condo I live in. Said restaurant would host loud parties which...

The Perfect Island Community

The Perfect Island Community

"If you look at an island for what it is, it's a piece of land, surrounded by water that appears to stand alone. It's true that there are no united states or neighbouring unions. It floats in the middle of the ocean, seemingly disconnected from the rest of the world....
