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.

Leaving St Helena

12th June 2017
In the last few weeks I have made the difficult decision to leave St Helena this year. This is because someone incredibly special came into my life, unexpectedly and I’ve planned to follow my heart and see where this love will lead. It is not a decision I have made lightly and I am aware of the true privilege I have had working here.
