What we love

It’s the birthplace of Rihanna. If you like rum you’re in the right place. London is about four times the size of Barbados – so you’re already a local. You can make friends with EVERYONE, their friendliness is infectious. The beaches… nuff said. It’s well known that a Mongoose in Barbados never crosses the road unless someone is watching.

Things we wish we'd known

Some trees are poisonous, don’t stand under the ones with the red stripe. The bus is like a non-stop party… get involved (the bell is the long black bar on the ceiling). If you get a good cab driver, keep ‘em, you’ll be best mates by the end of the trip.
