Current Rock of Residence:

St Croix, USVI

Island Girl Since:

June 2017

Originally Hails From:

Utah

Sarah has always wanted to travel. Having been born and raised in Utah and having lived there all her life, she wanted to see the world. When she and her husband decided that their life was “too much” and they wanted a slower pace of life, where else would they look besides an island? They were led to St. Croix, USVI. Having never been to the island, she took a leap of faith. She sent her husband to buy a home. She then packed up their home of 12 years and shipped everything – including a car – to St. Croix. Then she and her 2 boys (ages 9 and 7) boarded a plane and headed off to a place they had only ever seen in pictures. She has been on her “rock” for 2 months now and loves everything (well mostly everything) and has found the slower pace they desired. You can read more about Sarah’s life on St. Croix, USVI on her personal blog, Our Innovative Life.

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...
