The weather was lovely - the rain was actually the best!!!

I hired a car for one day - went to see the monkeys, and just around the island.

The reggae busses were fantastic,

I did so much, cant think now as I got back yesterday and i am back at work already, very tired....

the best thing was that it was actually very affordable out there, and I had fun every day - the food was fantastic - really miss it. Dinner at the tides was lovely total bill came to 302 bds, but I preferred the food at brown sugar where we ate three times. Oistins fish fry also had yummy food - I have actually gained 3/4 of a stone in two weeks!!!

We went on cool runnings catamaran cruise but I felt sick after our final dock and had to get off at the sandy lane beach - were I ended up throwing up!!! with all the posh people looking!!

Also booked a jeep safari with Island safari very enjoyable.

I am considering booking again for 2009 but have to convince my other half

I really want to book another trip asap - thinking of going with British Airways this time but have to wait a few months and cant go until 2009

I really enjoyed it, I am also entering lots of take a break competitions to win thomas cook travel vouchers so you never know!!!

I will probably book another holiday in 2008 - that way I can get a 2009 date - we will see

It was excellent . . . can anyone give any tips on how to survive when you get back?? I feel so sad........

Hi Dreamez

Cant believe you have been and come back already!

Good to hear that you had a great time.

Well seems like you have been bitten by the Barbados bug then. The best way to beat the blues is to get planning another trip back and get it all booked then start counting the days.

Join the club. 19 weeks to go for me!
