Help! I think I'm addicted to Bermuda! I saw Senior65's remark about Barbados on another post, and am looking for advice. My husband and I are longtime Bermuda fans, having made many, many trips, usually in September. However, we plan to take a week's vacation in February, and were considering Barbados.
In the past, we have traveled all throughout the Bahamas, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, etc. We are always left miserable, disappointed, and wishing we were in Bermuda, where everything is neat and clean, and the local people actually seem glad to see you. After a horrid and very frightening trip to St. Maarten, my husband made me promise never to take him anywhere but Bermuda.
I guess we are just overly picky, but there it is. We like order and civility. We like friendly people. We like to strike up conversations with the locals. And no, we don't want to buy drugs, or be around anyone offering them. Will we be disappointed with Barbados? My husband says he will go, but I can't bear to disappoint him again. Any help comparing these two islands is greatly appreciated.
