Current Rock of Residence:

Seychelles

Island Girl Since:

Birth

Originally Hails From:

Seychelles

Stephanie was born and raised on the island of Mahe in Seychelles and had never left the island until the age of 21 when she went to University in South Africa. As enjoyable and memorable as those 3 years away were, she claims that her heart was always yearning for her islands – the all year warm weather, the sunshine, and the white sandy beaches within easy reach. However, the thing that she missed the most was the atmosphere – the chill easy vibes that seem to be in the air. She has never been able to find that kind of atmosphere in any of the places that she has visited (granted, she has never been to any other tropical islands).

While she was away was when she realized that she is an island girl through and through and that she is very much attached to this particular rock. Over the past couple of years, she has developed an interest in creative writing. As a scientist, she has very little background in the field except for her extreme love for reading. So recently, she’s decided to try to develop her skills, learn how to write, and to try to see how far she can go.

Christmas on Saba

Christmas on Saba

It’s quiet out. And dark. The colourful street lights are up in each of the four villages of Saba, Chris Rea’s Driving Home for Christmas is playing, the tree is up, half hiding the presents underneath and the house smells of home-made cooking. It’s Christmas time...

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...
