two years ago today, i first arrived to provo, and i had no idea what awaited me. honestly, my first year was not easy, too many island life expectations to manage – and the thought that it would be easier than anyone told me. i felt isolated, island life was way too quiet and i missed the buzz of city life. not to mention, that i was now living in a more than 24 hours away from home, in a new place with no family or friends, other than my – fiancé at the time – james.
but time heals everything, and by the end of my first year i came to realized how lucky i am, to have this opportunity – living so close to the sea, in such a beautiful island, with a quality of life i would not have in many other places, getting to know new friends from different cultures, and experiencing what most of my friends and family from back home would dream of.
i am enjoying life here and try to make the most of it every day… after all, i can’t complain. THANK YOU TURKS AND CAICOS, for two wonderful years, filled with special moments, and for teaching me so much. i am ready for more!!
ps – my post a year ago today, if you would like to read my thoughts at the time.
