5 Months of Living in the Caribbean – Grenada in Photos

Dariece Swift author's bio Goats On The Road

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 our Grenada Travel Guide. And, have a look at all of the things to do in Grenada.

If you’re looking for an accommodation option on the island, check out Mount Cinnamon Grenada – an incredible boutique hotel!

  1. Granada looks AMAZING! How did you get all of those dog sit gigs? I just might have to explore that. I sure wouldn’t mind a few months on a gorgeous island!!

  2. Great pics. Looks like a great place to celebrate Christmas and New Years Eve. We were thinking of you as we munched on our subs on Saturday. Thanks so much for the gift certificate. Enjoy your travels. Keep safe. Love, Nan and Charlie

  3. If you change your mind and make up new plans for next year, I can take over 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!

  5. My dad went to medical school in Grenada for 2 years and absolutely loved it! He wants to take us there eventually, but we haven’t found time to do so! I also have a dog named Macy, what a small world! Grenada looks beautiful–white sandy beaches, crystal blue water, and beautiful plants/trees. Hopefully I can take pictures that capture the beauty of Grenada like these ones!
