On Friday night, Ryan and I went out for dinner with a couple we met over the internet! They are from Chicago and spent Labor Day weekend vacationing here in Grenada. She found my blog while searching for things to do in the area, so we emailed back and forth for a couple weeks prior to their visit. I shared with her some of our favorite restaurants, beaches, and excursions on the island. I knew immediately that we would get along well as we had a lot in common. They were kind enough to take an evening out of their vacation and meet us at Rick's for pizza and ice cream.
We had so much fun that night getting to know them and ended up talking for a couple hours. I'm just sad they live so far away! But Ryan and I have always wanted to visit Chicago, and now we have a little extra motivation to take a trip up that way.
It's funny how living in Grenada gave us the chance to meet someone from "back home." You never know where you'll meet a new friend!
