Grand Cayman

Cayman Starfish Point

Not too long ago both my Dad and sister descended upon Cayman for a long weekend of fun in the sun with their own built in destination expert (that would be me). We crammed a lot into one weekend — and there was still time for lounging by the pool and the sea. While the weather…

Cayman Tourist: Pedro St. James thumbnail

So in trying to plan such a short weekend I wanted to find activities that would show off Cayman and appeal to everyone’s interests. But you can’t win them all.

July 4th Abroad thumbnail

Last year, I was eating hamburgers at the Freebird Bar and Grill in Phnom Penh. This year I was sitting out a rainstorm, grilling burgers with our Canadian friends in Grand Cayman. The fourth of July abroad… always interesting. Recently I wrote about being homesick. I’d have to say, I woke up on independence day feeling…
