1 week, 4 days, 16 hours and 49 minutes till we go!!

I'm so looking forward to our holiday to Barbados!! It's my 30th birthday and also our anniversary whilst we're there making it even more special!

I've not been well for the last 6 weeks but finally seem to be on the mend... phew!!

We are staying in a suite at Bougainvillea so are self-catering. Is there a supermarket nearby?

Any tips for our stay? Which places should we visit?

(We are hoping to hire a car, go horse riding, try some water sports, go to the horse racing on July 5th and also go to Oistins.)

Sorry for the long post, just soooo excited!!!!!!

Sorry, I've just noticed that you pay $10 to go into the centre of the Course, so it is only free to stand on the rail.

You could go to the races on a non car day. Walk up to the main road from the hotel which will take you approx 5 mins then get on the bus to Bridgetown. Just tell the driver you want to get off by the Garrison. Save the car for touring places like the east coast etc.

Glc2304 that's fab, whereabouts are you staying?

Almatt and Westiegal3 that's really good advice thank you.

I think my other half would like us to go to watch the cricket while we're there, is there anything on between the 24th June and 6th July?

We are staying at the Waves on the West Coast.

You will have a great time at the horse racing! We went last year and it has such a great atmosphere. Are you flying from Gatwick or Manchester?

We fly from Gatwick on the 24th as it was cheaper than going from Manchester and the flight home was direct to Gatwick (we'd have had one stop to get back to Manchester). Simbadelight, where are you staying?

I'm so excited, keep jumping up and down!!

We fly from Gatwick too, Manchester is closest but you can't do a 10 day trip with Manchester flights.

I've never been horse riding in Barbados before but i have heard good things about Ocean Echo Stables, im sure someone else on here will have more info about them.

Have a great holiday :-)
