Welcome to Caribbean Snowflake. I’m Maya, marketing professional by day, travel, food, art and sports fanatic by night. I’m also Mum to Leo, a beautiful baby boy who died in neonatal care from a rare metabolic disorder called NKH and who now lives in the stars. Originally a city girl from London, UK, I left the big smoke in 2010 in pursuit of living the dream in paradise. On this blog I share travel & lifestyle tips, things that inspire me, how I deal with loss, as well as bits of my life here in the Caribbean.
People often tell me I’m so lucky to live where I do, have a "good job" and have so many adventures. Sure I'm very fortunate but I always tell them that I didn’t do anything they couldn’t. So take a risk. Decide what you want and then do everything you can to get it. Surround yourself with people who inspire you. Dream big, enjoy the world and make stuff happen. When I die I want my story to be worth reading. Hopefully this blog will inspire yours.
