My name is Riselle and I’ll be your host, travel guide, trip advisor, restaurant reviewer, island adventurer and explorer girl.
I hail from the beautiful island of Curaçao but have been calling the gorgeous island of St. Maarten my home for the last 15 years.
I have a bucket list a mile long consisting of different adventures and destinations. I love being a pet mom and try to spend as much time as possible with my four-legged kids (7 and counting). I am a TV junkie but still make time for my husband and furry kids, traveling, the beach, island adventures and my girlfriends. I am happiest discovering new destinations and cultures or exploring unknown places with my camera in hand.
I left my stressful job as an event planner behind (seriously, the best moment of my life) and dove head first into my next challenges as Blogger and Inn Owner. Whenever I am not writing you can find me hanging out with my guests and fellow travelers.
Impulsive, a true people person, happy, friendly, always ready to help and determined are just some of the words that describe me the best. Of course I can also be headstrong, bossy, spoiled, slow to forgive, short-tempered, irrational and at times grumpy (but a glass of wine or a cold bottle of beer usually cures this).
Travel is my one true passion and I do exactly that any chance I get but whenever I am not out exploring the world you can find me relaxing on beautiful beaches, enjoying great food, always in awesome company and pursuing a little adventure. Thankfully I am not short of experiences to be had on the 37 square mile island I call home.
Thank you for reading my blog.
Always live, love, laugh and travel,
Riselle a.k.a. The Traveling Island Girl ❤
