Barbados

A Barbados blog post is long overdue! But here it is. I went there in October for 6 days, Fall is the slower season in Barbados. I went with one of my best girls Joanna. We had a great time, I will try not to go on too much here but I think we found a piece of heaven. Really beautiful and friendly people, perfect sandy beaches, an average yearly temperature of 26c, colorful culture full of dancing, fishing and music. I could just go on and on, we loved it so much, we are going back in May. I can’t express enough, if you ever get the chance to go, just do it, Barbados will not disappoint. While I was there I had the chance to bob in the waves, work on my sunburn lol, play in the sand, ride in the local busses (small minivans that squeeze in as many people as possible), shop and cook in the heat of Bridgetown, take in some steel drums and traditional dancing at The Plantation, and of course enjoy some of the local food such as the famous Bajan Flying Fish. Some of the highlights of my trip included a local man on the bus that saw my bad sunburn and pulled a huge sprig of Aloe plant out of his bag, wrapped it up and gave it to me for my burn, a random act of kindness. It made my day. Also, while visiting the wildlife reserve in the northern part of this tiny island, I met some new furry friends who you will see in the photos below. A monkey reached out and held my hand while I was there, that is something I won’t easily forget.

Our home away from home for the week was the Silver Point Hotel, really nice place with friendly staff and what seemed like our own little beach in the back of the hotel. In Barbados, all beaches are public but at times we had the beach to ourselves, it was amazing and relaxing. My only regret is not getting more photos of the locals and any photos of Jo and I together, so forgive me if its just landscape/wildlife in my photos but I am going back and I have my shot list prepared!
