Current Rock of Residence:

Puerto Rico

Island Girl Since:

2016

Originally Hails From:

Phoenix, Arizona (the largest city on the surface of the Sun, yes it gets that HOT)

Jennifer lives in a sleepy little town on the East coast of Puerto Rico. Joining her on this adventure is one brave man, an elderly Labrador, and a newly adopted island cat. A day stopover in Old San Juan was enough to fall in love with this island, which resulted in a one-way ticket purchase a couple of years later beginning this new island life.

Jennifer gave up big city living for a simpler life, which somehow still involves running multiple IT consulting companies and two (double the crazy) blogs! Work days are spent on the patio desk enjoying the Caribbean breeze and listening to the cows grazing nearby.

Her days off are spent SCUBA diving, snorkeling, begging for rides on friends and stranger’s boats, hiking around her rock, exploring every rumor of a waterfall, or sipping a delicious rum beverage at the beach.

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...
