Grenada

I first arrived in Grenada in 2011 for a three-month house-sitting gig, and I ended up staying a couple of years (on and off). It was an idyllic AND tumultuous time in my life. Among other (mis)adventures, I had my heart broken (twice!), was in a near-fatal accident, and had my passport stolen in a $10,000 saga.
Good times. Yep, good times.
