Farewell Grenada, Next Stop: Antigua

All packed and ready to go. Upon leaving Grenada I was greeted with yet more rude staff at the LIAT check-in desk this time, I can’t even leave without another dose. Our driver had taken special care to bring our luggage into the airport and place it at the front of the queue to make […]

Sail Away: Goodbye Carriacou

I was sad to leave Carriacou and would have liked to have spent longer there – I would definitely like to return for a dedicated holiday in the future. A peaceful, battery recharging holiday. Having flown to the island, sailing back to mainland Grenada by ferry was a welcome contrast. The sunsets along the way were […]

Sandy Island

A tiny crescent island off the coast of mainland Carriacou, Grenada. An isolated island with a rustic charm. Uninhabited. The crabs featured at the end of the clip were quite something. There seemed to be hundreds of them all living under a big pile of old fallen coconut tree leaves. As soon as our picnic/lunch […]

Carry Me To Carriacou

Carriacou is one of Grenada’s sister Islands, and delightful contrast. The second largest of Grenada’s Tri-Islands. As well as the SVG Air flight, it is also possible to sail via Osprey Ferry from Grenada’s capital, St George or book an organised tour. I had always vowed never (under any circumstances) to fly in a light aircraft, […]

Another Not So Warm Welcome in Grenada, St George.

So we decided to eat like the locals and pop into a restaurant/cafe in the hustle and bustle of St George. Sample some local cuisine I thought, give some custom to local businesses (who you’d think would appreciate it more than your bigger more flourishing hotel empires), surely this couldn’t go horribly wrong. Surely not. Well sadly it […]

Spice up your life: Grenada Nutmeg Factory

Grenada: Coyaba Beach Resort Hotel, Grand Anse

A quiet hotel on Grand Anse beach. The staff are generally friendly and polite (with the exception of one housekeeping lady who beat on my hotel room door  one evening, with such force and persistence I thought maybe the hotel was burning down or the police had some urgent matter to discuss with me) – but oh […]

A Not So Warm Welcome to Grenada!

After long flight, and landing at Maurice Bishop International Airport, nobody expected to be greeted with the rude and hostile attitude of some ‘female’ immigration staff we encountered. What a welcome, and how embarrassing on their part. Perhaps these staff did not wish to encourage tourism into Grenada and preferred for us to return home to our […]
