Originally from Germany, Monja moved here in 1992 and met Neil, her husband and business partner. Monja worked in the tourism industry for a couple of years and started to develop the Grenada Explorer website as she saw that there was no comprehensive source of information for visitors to Grenada. Monja has seen many expats come and go over the years, and has a different perspective to newcomers to the island. You can see from the blog that she enjoys discovering new things about our island and sharing it with everyone. Monja loves hashing and hiking, exploring the island, trying out the tours, restaurants, and visiting the many beaches around the island.
Neil is Grenadian and Monja's partner and fellow hasher. Having grown up here, his point of view and pace of live is markedly different from what you would expect if you come from a more developed country. The way things are done can make most visitors throw up their hands in frustration and want to run around screaming... some do. Between Neil and Monja, you should get a more or less balanced view of life in Grenada! There is just no time to be bored here, too much to do and see.
Polly is the newest member of the Grenada Explorer team, but just as passionate about living in Grenada and experiencing everything that the island has to offer. She has lived in the West Indies since 2010 and couldn't imagine ever returning to England... why would you?! Polly loves to be out and about, exploring our beautiful island (above and below water) and meeting new people.
