After 5 incredible months of living in Grenada, we have moved on. Even though it was a very emotional goodbye last year, in a way, it was harder to leave this year because we were that much more attached to the people, the pets and our life there.

But, we’re travellers and our feet get itchy! The time had come for us to move on and explore other parts of our world. We were sad to go, but thinking that we’ll be returning to our favourite island in about 6 months made it that much easier to leave.

*Note, to see what we got up to while living in Grenada for 5 months, check out all of our videos! And, check out all of the things to do in Grenada

    I can get testimonials from a family in Green Street, St George’s, where I ended up amidst a bitch with a litter, that were all very sick. Changed my plans and 6 weeks later they were healthy and I could start my touring the island. Great experience both!
