Last Sunday, Yami and I went on a catamaran cruise along the west coast of Barbados. We went on El Tigre, and had a really good day, with all food and drink included in the price.
I played my first 18-hole round at Apes Hill just before Christmas. As you can see from the photos, the course is nothing short of spectacular.
Still dark when the alarm went off at 5:15am, I had second thoughts about joining in on the Great Railway Hike across Barbados. Organised annually by the Hike Barbados society, the hike follows roughly the old railway line, and runs a distance of 24-miles from Bridgetown to St Andrews Church. The Barbados Railway, constructed in the 1800’s by the British, primarily served the sugar cane industry, transporting harvested cane from factory to Bridgetown.
After convincing myself and managing to get out of bed (waking up Yami in the process), we got organised, but still set off a little late, arriving in Independence Square, Bridgetown at about 6.10. Not a problem we thought, especially on a Sunday morning, as Bajan time would definitely be in effect. But there was no-one around. Either the walk had been cancelled, or they had left without us.
Recently I had to go to nearby Dominica as part of work, and as luck would have it, the bosses private 4-seater plane was available, so I got to take a trip from Barbados via St Lucia in style.
Here are some photos from the plane;
A few weeks ago I travelled to Guyana on a few short trips with work. I stayed a few days each trip, the majority of the time spent in or around Georgetown, however we did travel to Linden, about 100km south of Georgetown, away from the coastal plains into the rainforest.
