The Caribbean! One happy place made up of a number of islands. The people are full of life and we have great food and beaches. A Red Stripe Beer, Hellshire fish and festival are my beach favorite but when I am not in the land of by birth, Jamaica, I mix it up a bit.
I am a Jamaican living in Antigua for the past ten years. I would love to visit more islands but that is a very expensive venture. However, from time to time I do visit a few.
This weekend, the hubby and I are visited another beautiful Island with magnificent beaches.
From our room nested on the third floor, I sip on a glass of Argentina Merlot and listen to the waves from the Caribbean Sea crashing in on the shores. Fantastic way to relax after a day of cricket 🏏 at Kensington Oval, Jamaica vs Barbados Regional Super50. I think I was the only one, other than the Jamaican players, that had on a Jamaican shirt and we won . #rally… I paired my medium light body with soft finishing Merlot with a medium-well steak and watched re-runs of Sex and the City.
Barbados is a really beautiful place with lots of things to do. We did a bit of exploring in our four days visit and we had a fabulous time. The cricket matches were not as excited as I have anticipated but a great time was had, even without our usual cooler when ever we go to cricket matches.
A tour of the island took us to one of the local rum distilleries and as we know Caribbean people are rum people. The tour was very informative and tasteful, I would suggest to anyone visiting the islands to go on a rum tour, if one is available.
Dining in Barbados varies in prices and quality but our best lunch was our six hours lunch with two friends . The conversation and laughs were priceless, and that my friends is what life is about.
A day of shopping and walking around the historic Bridgetown by myself was a well spent day. I had a few of the local beers, Banks and Deputy Beers with Lamb Neck stew. The Banks beer in Barbados taste much better than the one that is exported and we are good buddies now; sorry the Deputy on the other hand is not my buddy. It was my first time having Lamb Neck stew and I recommend you give it a try if you are in Barbados.
Barbados you were good to me . Cheers and see you next time, hopefully during your food and rum festival.
