The relentless humming of the anchor being dropped awoke me once again. Where are we today? I wondered to myself as I drifted out of consciousness.
After a day on the ocean with no sign of land in sight, it was even more exciting to be docking up at a new destination.
I flung open my curtains and yelped in delight at the new view outside out cabin window. I sure could get used to a new scenery outside my window every day! And I really didn’t care about being woken up early each morning as it really gave me more time to explore the new island.
Out of my window I could see the jetty, with clear blue waters on either side. To the left I could see the bright orange roofs of the capital city, St George's, nestled in a bay. To the right was a hill covered in thick green foliage, turquoise water lapping rhythmically at its rocky shores. Then, in the distance, behind St George’s, lay rolling mountains dressed in rainforests, enticing me in with their enchanting beauty.
It was my first time in Grenada and I couldn't have been more excited! The excursion we had planned today was the one I had been most looking forward to. It was called the Seven Sisters Waterfall trail.
Grenada is located at the tail end of the Grenadine island chain and actually consists of numerous islands: Grenada (the largest and where we currently were), Carriacou, Petite Martinique and several smaller islands.
Grenada is also known as the ‘Island of Spice’ due to its production of nutmeg, mace, cinnamon and ginger crops. It is in fact the world’s second largest producer of nutmeg after Indonesia.

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!
