About TTIG

Hi and welcome.

My name is Riselle and I’m a self proclaimed travel addict, true island girl and animal lover. Born on the beautiful island of Curaçao and residing now for the last 17 years on gorgeous St. Maarten, I learned at an early age that the Caribbean is where I belong.

At forty-something I have recently re-discovered my passion for adventure, exploring and travel. Discovering new destinations within the Caribbean and outside is when I feel the happiest and I wish to share this with the world. It is no wonder I have a mile long bucket list. Whenever I’m not traveling or exploring unknown places camera in hand you can find me on the beach, enjoying my island life.

Welcome to my blog, a space I use to inspire, empower, advise and entertain with amusing and sincere articles, photos and videos. If you’re looking for honest travel tips, beautiful Caribbean destinations, girls getaways and everything about the Caribbean lifestyle, look no further because you have come to the right place. Stay for a while. You never know what you might find here.

For a more real time experience, I invite you to feel free to stalk me on my social media channels. Leave a comment and introduce yourself. I always love meeting new people and am always here to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Always live, love, laugh and travel.
