I am getting super excited!!!

The countdown is on! 26 days and I will be relaxing on your beautiful beaches.. I am also excited for our beach house on cotton house bay:) so glad that the tropical storm passed you by. God is good.. Best tip for WHAT NOT to miss on your beautiful island? Best uncrowded boat trip? Best food on the island.. Gotta go pack my swimsuit.. See you soon!

Don't miss Harrison's Cave, Hunte's Gardens or the view of the Rugged East Coast from Hackleton's Cliff.

Don't miss out on the fantastic Grilled Blue Marlin with Macaroni Pie and Cole Slaw from Pat's Place at Oistins. Don't miss out on the Monday Night Buffet Dinner at Brown Sugar in Aquatic Gap. Some of the best local food on the island.

As it pertains to trips, my preference is always the day cruise on Cool Runnings!

LOL @ Barbados-Buddies I am about the same as you and feel the same way. So nice to have something to look forward to but so sad we have to rush our lives away to get to those enjoyable times. :)

Feel the same as GEM so sad we have to rush our lives to look so forward to our holidays. Seems its the only way to get through the year. Wishing everyone a happy holiday in Barbados.

reallyr: We enjoyed a day trip that included: (1) Brighton farmer's market (Saturday morning only) for breakfast then drove to (2) Welchman Hall Gully. We arrived before the person who collects fees but the gate was open so we payed after. Really nice walk, beautiful plants and collapsed cave and monkeys swinging from the trees (and running the path) then (3) Harrison's Cave. Really pretty cave ride on a tram. I've seen some call this "Disney-ish, but I've been to a few caves and a tram is not unusual. Finally (4) Hunte's Garden, one of the prettiest gardens planted by a very kind, entertaining man, Anthony Hunte. All of these things are in a nice loop drive in a beautiful part of Barbados. Bring a picnic as restaurants are scarce in this area.

7 weeks to go for me and i have nearly applied a 'trip advisor ban' on myself, as every time i look i just get more and more excited.

I am looking forward to some deep sea fishing, hire a car and tour for a couple of days, Gutted the cliff cancelled my booking, however, im sure we will be spoiled for choice of fine restaurants when we are there.

Lets hope my 1 year old handles the flight better than my aunt who is petrified of flying.
