Barbados Trip- January 2010



Happy New Year! Barbados was so much fun. This was my first time on the island and I cannot tell you how much I loved it! The island itself is absolutely gorgeous- beautiful weather, miles upon miles of white sand beaches, very friendly locals and hardly any mosquitoes! (I, in general, happen to be the mosquito's dinner of choice and while I did get one bite, it was nothing compared to the 30+ bites I received in Tortola last year... but I digress...)

We stayed at the Tamarind Cove Hotel in St. James. Situated on a beautiful stretch of beach, Tamarind Cove has lovely rooms, three freshwater pools, a very delicious breakfast and countless amenities- I highly recommend it...

Here was our hotel room...

It felt very good to relax but as you can imagine, my mind as The Daily Connoisseur can never fully retire. There were a few guests at the hotel that were from France and you can be sure that I was in full observation of how the French vacation! (post forthcoming). I also read two amazing books that I have to share with you... I'm looking forward to a new year of blogging, adventures and possibilities. Thanks for joining me on the way...

Stunning. Welcome back Jennifer. I can't type through the longing for Barbados banging a drum in my head. Think I have to lie down and watch a Johnny Depp film! xx

Welcome back and Happy 2010. Glad you had a great time in Barbados, not least of all because we are going to be there in a couple of weeks time (but just passing through alas). But from your photos it looks as though the weather was good. Wonderful.

Thank you Efi xo

And thank you to everyone for your comments... I did not mention in my post what a headache the flight/ air travel was. Highlights included delayed flights, hot tea spilled on B right at the beginning of a six hour flight and lost luggage lol (I can laugh about it now because the luggage was returned and we made it home alive). So as a result I am still recovering and am absolutely exhausted!

Barbados was well worth it though. Lady Jicky thank you for your suggestion and Alan if you get a chance to pass through I hope you can at least swim in the Carribean!

Lots of love to you all xx
