About

Hey there.

I am Riselle, an island girl in her forties who is fascinated with travel and her island lifestyle.

Originating from the beautiful island of Curaçao but calling the stunning island of St. Maarten home, I live a comfortable existence with my many pet children and husband James.

Blogging for me started as a necessary outlet while I was going through an early midlife crisis at age 40. I was struggling with who I was, what I was I doing with my life and what I have accomplished so far. To read more about this click here.

I also started getting more obsessed with traveling, especially discovering and experiencing other Caribbean islands. The Traveling Island Girl Blog today is visited by many for travel advice, Caribbean destinations, hotel reviews and the quirky stories about island living.

Being a true island girl, avid traveler, pet mom, animal advocate and wife, I incorporate my personal life into my stories and videos in a honest and transparent way, hoping to inspire YOU to pack up your bags and travel and experience more. So, sit back and browse as I share with you my island adventures, Caribbean explorations and destination experiences.

Thank you for being here. It means we share some of the same interests. I hope I get to inspire and empower you. Know that you can always knock on my virtual door for advice and questions by just contacting me.

Always live, love, laugh and travel.
