Once upon a time there were two people who decided to leave their life in the UK and move to the Caribbean. They were not the first people to do this and they probably won’t be the last, but there were some ways in which these people were different.
For a start, the woman had spent part of her childhood in the region so it wasn’t a completely new to her. Second, they bought a plot of land and started building the house whilst in the UK. And third, they left no fallback position — when they went, they went. Finally, they were both location independent professionals working from home. And they had a three-year-old daughter. This blog tells that story — but that’s not all.
We know that many of you are looking for information about travel to Caribbean destinations and we want to provide that, though from our own unique point of view. What you will get on this blog are the views both of someone who is seeing the place as an outsider and of someone who is a partial insider.
When we moved to Barbados that might have seemed like the end of the process but it was only the beginning. We have learned as much about the region and ourselves since we made the move as we did in the process of planning it.
Who should read this blog? Anyone who is thinking of:
- designing a new life by moving to Barbados or the Caribbean
- building a home in a foreign country
- visiting Barbados and the Caribbean for a holiday
Some of our posts will deal with current issues while others will examine the lessons we have learned in the process of getting to where we are now. Our aim is to become a one-stop shop for this information, starting with Barbados and broadening out to the wider Caribbean. Join us as we grow and be sure to stop by to ask questions or make a contribution. We’d love to hear from you.
