Introduction

Until this day I had been enjoying life going to school, visiting family, taking part in sporting activities doing everything a normal child would. It wasn't until the evening when I returned home from school my parents told me where we were going for a family holiday this year - I could believe it, it had been 3 years since we had been abroad on holiday. I had to wait for my sister to arrive home from getting back from her friends house before they would tell us where we were going. Finally my sister Rebecca walked in. My mum started to tell us, we were really excited but she kept pausing which kept adding to the amazement of where we would be going. She finally told us by saying "Were going to Barbados" me and my sister just looked at each other in astonishment, we were so cheerful. Now there were the questions we wanted to know like: "When do we fly", "What airport are we flying from" and "How long is the flight". We were told all the answers to our questions. In fact we couldn't believe it because we were flying in 2 days time. ...read more.

We landed in Bridgetown at about 10pm local time, we went through customs and were then guided to the tour operator's table. Once we got outside it was very humid although still late at night the temperature reported by the airport said it was 30�c. We were taken to the coach which took us to our Hotel that we were staying at. Whilst on the coach we saw the lively night life at a local tourist point on the south coast. The smell of food just smelt exquisite, I felt like I wanted to try some right there. We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by the friendly staff, they all gave us there welcome and showed us to our rooms and said if we needed anything else or had any problems just ask them. The next day was awesome we had breakfast at the hotel - it was kind of a big breakfast but different to England's it seemed more healthy, cooked in less fat and more continental style than the more traditional. Best of all it was an all you can eat, we could keep going back for more. ...read more.

Conclusion

That evening we drove to Oistins where they have a really big party every Thursday & Friday night with local food being cooked which was Chicken and there speciality flying fish which I recommend to anyone to try. This was great night out for our penultimate day on the island. Our final day came fast which I had not been wanting to come, however since it was the last day we had to live it to the max so we went into the capital and walked around all the streets and shops to see if we could spend any more of our last remaining currency. Walking up and down the cobbled streets jammed packed with people and traffic and smells coming from the fish stalls and other food stalls. Normally I hate the smell of raw fish without it being cooked but the sellers would cook it for you and you could taste the mouth watering cuisine. It was an experience which I would never forget and to top it all off we went to a posh Italian restaurant in the evening to reminisce such a great time we had in Barbados as tomorrow marked our 2 week holiday over and we had to return to England. ?? ?? ?? ??
