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.

Celebrating Pancake Day aka Shrove Tuesday on St Helena Island. Ate too many delicious pancakes and saw how St Helena experiences this unique day.
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.
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.
