Hello there, I'm Victoria.

I live on and write about St. Helena Island.

Last year I was offered a wonderful opportunity to come and work on the small remote island community of St Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean. It has been a fantastic experience so far and I hope you enjoy sharing in my adventure here and learning something about this magical place.

Not So Strictly Dance Competition and High Peak

13th March 2017
I got the opportunity to attend the 'Not So Strictly' dance event at Plantation House, home of the Governor of St Helena. The next day I hiked to the top of High Peak in the fresh air and sat amongst the clouds.

Birthday St Helena Style (with added whale sharks)

10th March 2017
I left the house on the morning of my 28th birthday to go on a boat trip to swim with the whale sharks. I was fortunate enough to swim with them today, as my birthday falls on a Saturday this year and February is prime whale sharks season here on island.

Exploring more of St Helena Island

21st February 2017
We repeated the evening hike to Diana’s peak to see if we had a better chance of star gazing on a clear night, with no moon in the sky. However, despite Diana’s peak being the highest point on the island, it has thick cloud cover so not ideal for star gazing but a lovely walk nonetheless.
