Those who are about to fly, salute you !

Well - it's our turn at last.

A big thankyou to everyone that's helped either directly or indirectly - we are going with lots of info/ideas.

This time tomorrow we'll be... well, actually we'll probably just be over the atlantic - but you get my drift :-)

Look forward to meeting everyone who's able to attend the May 11th picnic and anyone that can help me win some money at the races the day after ;-)

We'll no doubt be around for a few hours yet, but just in case we start the party early...

Cheers all

Have a good time but remember to go to the Caribbean with a sense of humour & patience -you'll probably need it if you haven't been to BDS before, don't expect too much & ease your way into it, get into "island time"- above all RELAX!

Hi both,

Have a wonderful holiday, be warned if this is your first time in Barbados - you'll be hooked like most of us here!!

Try and smuggle back some sun - here in Swansea winter has returned!!!

Looking forward to your report in a couple of weeks - until then ENJOY!!!

Hi Glyn & Mandy,

Enjoy every minute of your stay and i think you have chosen a good location.

There is another thread running at the moment regarding sunset views so make sure you have a few early evenings on the decking around the Blue Orchid with a Banks or Rum Punch in hand.

Enjoy the racing and don't bother with the "all inclusive trip" you will see advertised. Make your own way there and join the locals on the rails and save yourself money to either win/lose on the horses. Its cheap to get in and easy to get to by bus and a better view in my oppinion. Have done both in the past and the latter is far better.

Enjoy the 11th May picnic and wish I was atteding as well but it will have to wait until next Jan/Feb when we are booked already. Who knows I might just make it again this year.

Enjoy and will look forward to a trip report on your return.

Regards Dave

I am sooooo envious, my friend's daughter is over there at the moment and she says it's boiling hot!

Safe travels.
