Baby I’m in Barbados!

 

Barbados has always been one of those picture postcard destinations that filled my imagination with palm trees at sunset, idyllic white sand beaches, all set to the pace of island time. If it’s beautiful beaches, friendly locals and swimming beside turtles in the waves at your local beach, then I can guarantee then Barbados is your jam.

However, this paradise doesn’t come without its qualms … food is ridiculously expensive. We had been warned, but you can’t help but reel back in horror, while you stand there sandy-footed in the airconditioned supermarket aisle looking at a £12  box of cereal. Expenses aside, we found the food to be really good, a mix of American and British influence in the tourist restaurants and then in the local markets and beachside diners a fresh spicy Bajan cuisine to satisfy any belly.

The highlight of our trip would have to be the boat day trip using Calabaza boat tours. This included; snorkeling with turtles, feeding colourful fish,  exploring sunken shipwrecks, Bajan style lunch, amazing service and an open bar… yup an open bar… Life has never felt so good then when drunk, on a boat, in the Carribean x
