Barbados

At the end of July I made the trip to Barbados to visit my roommate from college and one of my closest friends, Emily. The last time I was on a plane was about 5 years ago and just coming from NYC, so I had no idea what I was doing. It's a miracle I arrived there in one piece!

I was in Barbados for a week, and believe it or not, came back even more pale than I was prior to basking in the sun. (Shoutout to fake tans that fade gradually over a week!)


Getting close!

Most amazing beaches and water

Beautiful
A picture that makes it look like I got a tan, don't be fooled!
Different beaches daily
An outdoor potluck birthday dinner
Sitting in the water, because sitting on the sand is so hot!
Checking out the locals, perhaps?

Nothing like it

Very cool, but very creepy at the same time!
A Bajan snow cone, much sweeter than the ones I'm used to!

Home, and ready for a shower

Overall it was a great trip, and if you are interested in exploring the Caribbean I highly recommend checking out Barbados. While I saw it from more of a local view than that of a tourist, here are the five things I would suggest making sure you do while on the island.

1. Snorkelling with the Sea Turtles.
2. Spend a day at Carlisle Bay, or any beach really!
3. Get a heritage tour, there are some beautiful buildings around the island with a lot of history.
4. Go to 'Harbour Lights' and get a taste of the nightlife.
5. Try some local cuisine, such as flying fish or macaroni pie.


I compiled all of my clips into a video on YouTube, check it out below!
