It's about time!

Warning - This'll be another hospital project!

After much contemplation, I have decided to do a Barbados page. Because I am originally from Barbados, I've put off doing one cause I might be a bit biased. And I don't think a biased page is much use to travellers.

So I'll take my time and do this one slowly so as to give as objective a view as possible.

The not so usual bits

I've seen most of Barbados.

When I was a teenager, I was in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and as a group we walked the length and breadth of the island.

Been down in the gullies and in some of the caves.

And it's these lesser known bits that I miss the most!

Barbados National Trust

I also used to work and volunteer with the Barbados National Trust. So I know some of the properties they manage on the island.

Places like Andromeda Gardens, Welchman Hall Gully, Gun Hill, Morgan Lewis Mil, Tyrol Cot.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Friendly people, lovely climate
  • Cons:Maybe a bit expensive
  • In a nutshell:A great place!

    Don't be afraid to post about your own country, as I always say, locals know best. I understand how you might feel it's biased, but that's not the case with me. To me it's no different than posting about another country. Just post the truth, and you would for anywhere else, and you will be fine. I rarely post about my own country as well, but for a different reason. It's just not as interesting as posting about someone else's country.

    cobbler needles are projected from the sea urchin when you get too close to them. special hot wax can be dripped to remove, but they are painful!

    Barrancoid is an era..S/B came from Venzuela from the Orinoco Valley. Pedros Campos named the island "Os Barbados" or "The Bearded Ones" referring to the look of the fig trees!
