The blue skies, turquoise ocean and white-sand beaches create a holiday feeling on this Caribbean island, but once again I experience how different the feeling is of expatriation to taking holidays.
On my first walks on the beach I did feel more related to the seaweed washed ashore than to the tourists enjoying themselves.
The welcome by locals and the international community is warm and well organised. The advice I get most is: “start exploring and enjoying the things tourists do”.
Still our first shopping day was a hunt for adapters for every socket needed for our European phones, tablets and laptop. Making sure we can stay in touch with our loved ones!
