The sun was setting over the horizon when I took my first step off the plane and onto the island in Anguilla. The whizzing of the small plane’s engines drowned out the chorus of frogs and crickets chirping in the distance.
I looked about me and took in the blood-red sky.
It had been sad to leave Antigua earlier that day. I had only spent a mere 24 hours on the island and that had been nowhere near long enough to see what it had to offer. Well, I can always return in future.

Anguilla is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands and is totally flat. It’s a very small island, measuring only 16 miles in length by 3 miles in height. The island is composed of coral and limestone and it’s home to approximately 17,400 residents.

Hi there! Want to find out what happens next? You can find the full story with all the juicy details over at my Patreon.
What is Patreon? you may ask. Well, Patreon is a platform where I upload exclusive content. By paying a small fee per month, you will gain access to loads of content.
It was a big decision for me to set this up but after careful consideration I felt it was the right thing to do. It allows me to be more creative and more honest, sharing stories I would never tell otherwise.
It also allows me to start earning from content creation. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you will know I don’t do create content for the money. I write because I love it! But earning a small income from what I’m passionate about has its benefits. It allows me to travel more and put more effort into my work. I can actually justify spending countless hours planning content!
