Last update for a couple of weeks, as I’m off to Barbados tomorrow! Definitely not the usual kind of holiday for us, but the villa came free as it’s in the family and a bit of sun after this very long cold snap will be most welcome. We’re going with my parents, aunt and uncle and sister so it’ll be a family vibe like in Chamonix last summer.

To be honest I have no idea what to expect and I haven’t done my usual kind of research (ie finding the best coffee, food and bars around). I think it’ll be a lot of lounging on the beach, playing games and drinking daiquiris by the barrel-load. If anyone has any last minute must-see, do or eat tips for me I’d love to hear them! See you in a week or two x

    I’m so damn jealous right now. Have fun! I will get over the jel by cooking from the smitten kitchen cookbook, thanks for the inspiration!

    Definitely recommend going on a catamaran for a day. You can swim with turtles and you get supplied with incredible food and endless Banks beer, too :) Enjoy! x

    Some must-dos on the island are:
    – catamaran cruise and swimming with turtles, as Bex suggested
    – night at the Oistins Fish Fry
    – tour of Harrison’s Cave
    – island safari tour

    You might also like a dive on Atlantis Submarines and, if you’re feeling adventurous, ziplining!
    There are lots of great restaurants – I recommend Fish Pot for upmarket dining and Cuz’s Fish Stand for a delicious cheap meal.

    Have a great time in Barbados :)

    Bottom Bay for a day with a cooler (full of daiquiris clearly!), snorkel with the turtles in Paynes Bay, a meal at the Cliff, a drink (or three) at Priva and a Friday night at Oistins!
