Greetings from Barbados! It is surreal I am here. This is my first time visiting the Caribbean islands. Barbados is definitely not what I had expected, to be honest I wanted to visit the island because Rihanna is originally from here lol. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was there was little to no tourists, I am guessing when people visit they must stay at all inclusive hotels because tourism is almost non-existent. I personally like it better this way because it's more of an authentic experience but it makes it difficult in terms of finding restaurants near some of the beaches. The locals are super friendly, probably some of the nicest and most helpful people I have met in my travels. It is also somewhat affordable as our US dollar is worth twice the Barbadian dollar. My sister did a little bit of research and found out that Barbados is a pretty safe country to travel in and getting around the island on the bus is very easy. The bus costs $2 Barbadian and goes everywhere. They also blast island music on the buses which I have a deep appreciation for, it is like a little party bus :)
I am sad we leave literally a few weeks before the Crop Over Festival. I will have to return for the festival one of these years. Have you guys visited any of the Caribbean islands?
