christmas in turks and caicos


how do we spend christmas in turks and caicos? it sure is different than in the city, with cold (and cozy) weather, enjoying time together by the fire place and eating roasted chestnuts.

it’s warm and sunny, there is little or no shopping, and we’re in flip flops and short sleeves all day. and because most of us are here without our families, we stick together and enjoy spending christmas with close friends. Continue reading

happy holidays


from our family to yours. we are lucky to have amazing friends to share our christmas under the sun, drinking mimosas with our feet in the sand ;)

may you have a joyous holiday season filled with love, happiness and lot’s of laughter (and yummy food)!

ps – our first christmas in turks and caicos, 2 years ago

christmas day in turks and caicos

this was what christmas day looked like for us, can you believe it? i kind of had to pinch and remind myself of how lucky we are to live here, enjoy these beautiful beaches and this weather all year long. so on christmas morning, instead of having breakfast and opening gifts with my family back home (as i have done all my life) we headed to grace bay club to see santa arrive by boat. in my imagination santa always came down the chimney, but in the provo we don’t have chimneys – thus santa had to find another way to reach us. it was a beautiful morning, there was a great atmosphere at the beach, the kids were all excited, everyone was out in a happy mood, wishing each other a merry christmas and drinking mimosas. and we  took pictures of santa too.

i hope your christmas was a happy one too!

happy holidays from turks and caicos

wearing flip flops and going for a dip in the sea on christmas day is a whole new experience for us. we are missing our family and friends back home, but we are so lucky to be having a warm christmas under the sun with all our provo friends!

we look forward to seeing santa arriving by boat at grace bay beach tomorrow morning, and watching maskanoo on grace bay road on boxing day…and i’m sure james will find time for some diving too!

we wish you all a merry christmas, filled with LOVE, HEALTH, HAPPINESS and lot’s of LAUGHTER!
