Hello from Barbados

Hi everyone! I’m in sunny Barbados for the next few days, soaking up the sun and enjoying every minute I’m not in the snow/wind storm back home in Baltimore.

My mom and I met during via flight connection at the Atlanta airport- she flew out of Iowa during a blizzard, was delayed, and ended up running to make the flight to Barbados. I met her with a breakfast burrito at the gate (a super-important component of flying is the burrito). We were the last people to board. Whew!

Once we arrived at our hotel, the Hilton Barbados, we were whisked away to a complimentary happy hour with rum punch, wine, and a few hors d’oeuvres. Once our drinks were secured, we went hiking around the grounds of the Hilton which was built between a lighthouse and a fort.

Every happy hour should have some cannons, am I right?

We ate some dinner at a hotel restaurant that involved some beer battered fish and salad. Combining one healthy thing with one unhealthy thing totally negates the unhealthy thing- #truth.

My 3:30am wakeup call to get to the airport on time caught up with me really quick (plus the wine) so Mom and I were both in bed by 8pm. I ended up sleeping a full 11 hours- I was a sleepy bear!

We tried to fight the sleepies by hammock-napping but it did not work.

That is for Day 1 in Barbados. We will be visiting Barbados for a few days before a change of Caribbean paradise scenery.

Reader Question: Have you been to Barbados? Did you have a favorite activity here- besides drinking rum and getting a sunburn? That I already have covered Smile

    It looks beautiful! You definitely picked a good time to escape to the Caribbean. It’s super cold up here.
