Time Flies When You’re Having Fun!

Today marks my two year anniversary on Guam! I often think about that first night when my plane landed on this small, beautiful island. Prior to arriving on Guam, I spent a few days in Las Vegas and Hawaii. It was all fun and games and felt like a mini vacation during those days. My huge life choice hadn’t really hit me until the taxi cab driver pulled up to my new home and a gecko ran across the sidewalk. I then realized what I had done. I’d moved thousands of miles away from my home, leaving everything and everyone I loved, to start a new life. I’ve traveled a bit and lived in many places, but Guam was the first tropical place I had ever lived. My dream had come true! I always wanted to be an island girl. There was no way I could prepare for my new life and any plans I had made for myself went right out the window in Guam. During these past two years I have been able to travel to countries I never thought I would. There have been a lot of ups and downs during my life on Guam, but when I’m old and grey, I will look back on my life in Guam with pleasure. I’m so happy that I was able to experience this lifestyle and live in a place that most people don’t even know about. The most important thing that happened to me while in Guam was falling in love with Peter! There’s no other person I’d rather have in my memories and on my adventures than him.

Guam is such an incredibly small island, so far away from any other major country that I’m impressed by how much blogging content it has provided. There are still so many more adventures to come. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed, regularly read my blog, and supported me. I truly appreciate you all and here’s to another year!



  1. Haha! You really can’t prepare yourself for it, can you? I tried the same thing. Didn’t work. I’m learning to love the geckos, though–as long as they’re not in my kitchen. πŸ™‚
