Hi. My name is Linda. A tad over 30 years ago, aged 40, I emigrated to the Canary Islands with my two, then-small sons, and my then-husband. Somewhere along that new road the name Islandmomma stuck, long before blogs were a thing.
Life on a sub tropical island is pretty much like life anywhere. Many of the dramas of my life have been lived out here, and most importantly it’s the place my sons grew up, the nearest to “home” we will all come for now.
It’s been a while now since my nest emptied, that was another new road; I took some long trips, wandered for months on end. Came back, worked until the coffers were heavier. What a shame I didn’t have the confidence to blog back then! It’s true when they say that life’s biggest regrets are what we haven’t done, and not what we did do.
