Montage Monday: Grenada

Apologies for the delay but I’ve been bed-bound due to a nasty stomach virus even Cipro couldn’t handle. That will teach me to eat “Western” food while traveling abroad…

Take a walk down memory lane with me on this three-photo montage highlighting my best memories from past travels!

Reuniting with my high school best friend, Milania, in the gorgeous Caribbean island of Grenada while she attended medical school there. Can you imagine studying for exams in this amazing place? You wouldn’t be able to tear me away from the beach!

I met a wonderfully generous woman named Kathyann who invited Milania and I over for a home-cooked Caribbean feast and a fun afternoon at the waterfall and lagoon with her family. The children were adorable!

I was part of a group that went to learn more about leatherback turtles and we were fortunate enough to see one beach, lay her eggs and return back to the sea! It was an incredible experience! You’re not allowed to take flash photos of the turtles, but one of the guys “accidentally” did and sent it to me.

    I’m so jealous you got to see the turtles there. Sounds like an amazing experience. It’s pretty big that thing! Awesome.

    I got to see these huge turtles lay eggs as well, when I was in Akumal, Mexico (2 hours south of Cancun) and it was amazing. Watched it all by moonlight. The turtles were huge, like the size of a small Volkswagon! Even more amazing though was watching the eggs hatch and they follow the moonlight into the sea like a little army swarming the beach, there were more than 100 hatched at once! So impressive and unforgettable!
