One year ago I was laying on the beach at a resort on the beautiful island of Barbados. 🇧🇧 It was my first true adult vacation—and it was memorable for many reasons. I got engaged!I fell in love with the Caribbean! And, I learned quickly that my mind’s creative juices finally reset after a much-needed break. Learn why it might be the next vacation on your bucket list.

Amazing Airport Experience

There’s nothing like getting off a plane and being handed a rum punch as you head to pick up your luggage. In fact, the whole experience at Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados makes you wish every airport was the same. It’s small, efficient and typically your ride to your accommodations is relatively short (in my case–a wonderful 10 minutes!). Travel has never been so simple or easy.

The Scenery is Exquisite

The island of Barbados is a cozy 432 square kilometres. It’s covered in stunning green palm trees as far as the eye can see. The spirited ocean is great for the adventurous and if you’re lucky, you’ll come across some green monkeys on the beach, ready to pose for photos with you.

Good Vibes

The friendly people, delicious food, lively culture and music are truly what makes the island a unique vacation destination. The safe, warm country provides an excellent escape for both families and couples alike, whether you stay on a resort or in a private residence.

In fact, I love this island SO MUCH, that I’ll be hopping on a plane the first chance I get to visit. The resort–Sandals Barbados, of course.
