I’ve had a bunch of family staying with me for the past ten days, and I’m super, super sad to see them leave today=( It’s always so much fun to play hostess and to spend some rare quality time together.
When my husband and I decided to move to Barbados, we knew we would be giving up precious time with our family and friends. No more summer bbq’s, Thanksgivings, or pumpkin picking. No more Christmas Eve’s spent with the entire family, but living in paradise does have its perks. We can treat our family to a fabulous vacation! And the best part about having guests is getting to see the island through a tourist’s eyes. When you live somewhere, it’s easy to forget about the cool things your country or city has to offer. So I put together a bit of a scrapbook about Barbados, the island I call home…for now (being an expat means a move is inevitable)!
The turquoise sea and white sandy beaches beckon you from the plane!
Since it’s a former British colony, British sports are very popular. Take in a cricket match at Kensington Oval, or head to one of the many polo fields and watch a polo match. Don’t forget the Champagne!
Take a catamaran tour and and snorkel with the beautiful sea turtles!
Don’t forget to book a tee time! We have some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean (see my reviews here).
Watch out for traffic jams! The blackbelly sheep tend to wander.
To finish your day, watch the sun set over the Caribbean Sea.
