Barbados, Barbados, lets go to Barbados. This magnificent Caribbean island is most definitely one of my favorites; and I'm sure for many others as well..
Reason 1) Lodging
Spectacular locations, views and resorts. They are plentiful with places to stay, hotels, villas, Airbnb accommodations and more.
We stayed at a lovely fully equipped Airbnb home, it was located in Bridgetown, very close to St. James. This place was absolutely beautiful, the host, her name was Jane. She had this place looking immaculate. Newly renovated, clean and fully stocked with everything we needed.
Beautiful porch patio and fabulous view overseeing the lovely land of Barbados.
Reason 2) Entertainment
Amenities and resources nearby. Grocery stores, beaches, restaurants, clubs everything you can think of that comes with an entertainment district; it's there. St. James area is very lively at night, they have karaoke at many of the bars and lounges. Local island food is always cooking, smells of the food fill the streets, locals and tourists are mingling; awesome atmosphere.
This long pathway (just above) for locals and tourists to walk they have every kind of restaurant, bar and hotel for our convenience. Excellent deals, so many options and markets selling goods along the way.
Reason 3) Breakfast
The restaurants always accommodate you with the type of food that you want, whether it be local island food or regular North American or a British breakfast. You can pay for your food in either local or US currency (which for us was a great option)
Food is always hot, well presented and delicious.
Happy Days breakfast was my favorite. Service and food was wonderful. Thanks again to Happy Days!
Reason 4) Andromeda Botanical Gardens
If you are a green finger, love plants and nature, you are going to love Andromeda. This botanical garden was created in 1914 by the lovely Iris Bannochie. This garden is abundant with plants, trees and flowers from all over.
When you arrive they give you some paper guides to help direct you and explain every living thing in the garden.
Me explaining a little upon my arrival.
Reason 5) The People
The people of Barbados made us feel so welcome. We were so happy and comfortable mingling and getting to know them. They make you feel like family, very easy going and kindhearted people. They take care of their island so well with such things like beaches and available services e.g. accommodating us with chairs and beach umbrellas, businesses, construction and daily live. Bajans are very kind and courteous on the roads. Meal services are excellent and the list goes on.
Thank you again for making our time here magnificent.
