My name is Charlie and I’m a Caribbean blogger. I write about island lifestyle and travel (in particular in the British Virgin Islands) with some recipes, style guides and other fun bits thrown in.
I want to introduce you to the BVI from the perspective of someone living here. So whether you’re just curious about what it’s like to live the #islandlife – or you’re planning your dream Caribbean holiday. I’m here to help! Join me on my weekly island adventures!
I consider myself extremely fortunate to live in the British Virgin Islands! I first moved here in 2008, fresh out of university – with the intention to return to the UK after ‘a year’. But… I fell in love with the islands, the people and the lifestyle and it has been home for the past decade!
In 2015 we downsized from the main island of Tortola (with a population of approximately 24,000) and now reside on the slightly sleepier, and far more relaxed sister-island, Virgin Gorda 18.4939°N, 64.4023°W (only 4,000 of us here!) I’m here with my handsome husband and my pack of three very daft island dogs – or ‘coconut retrievers’, as they’re sometimes known.
I am addicted to online shopping, statement jewelry, seafood, taking photos of my dogs, rose gold, champagne, travel and adventuring, binge-watching Netflix and boat days with my loves.
Food, photography, family and friends (and not necessarily in that order) make my heart happy!
