Madison Caribbean Adventures - Barbados


I decided that we're going to do a mini series of my Caribbean trip. As many of you know, I recently took a trip to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. One of the places that I visited before heading to St. Vincent was Barbados. I got to spend an entire day in Barbados and loved it. The singer Rhianna is from that beautiful island and I think that I am going to visit once again. Now you may also know that I live in Colorado and it took us through 2 time zones to get there. I left on a cold and wintery morning on a Jet Blue flight and when I arrived it was warm and it was paradise. I want to share some of the photos that I took while I was there.


Looking at the island from above was a sight to behold. Lots of green and no white. Where was the snow? Well mommy said that there is no snow in the Caribbean. I can totally live here!



We landed at the Grantley Adams International Airport and it was great taking my sweater off and not having to be bundled up anymore. I also had a lot of fun at the airport while waiting for our taxi to arrive before we went to mommy's friend house for the night.




That afternoon mommy decided that I was going to visit the beach. It was my very first time being on an actual beach and I have to tell you that it was amazing! The sand felt nice under my feet and while I was afraid to actually go into the water, I loved watching the waves.





When I finally left Barbados I decided to visit the gift shop and I'm happy I did because mommy decided to get me 2 books, which I plan on highlighting on my Toddler Book Talk Tuesday next week. You know how much I love books and I even decided to read one of them while waiting for my flight to St. Vincent.




I love the Caribbean islands and I can't wait to visit again. Next stop, St. Vincent and the Grenadines!


So tell me what Caribbean island have you visited and if you've never visited would you love to?

    1. Janine the next time we visit you should totally come with us. While it was hot it was not the heat that you have in the summer here in the US since there was always a nice breeze. LOVE IT!

  25. I commented but seems Google gods ate my comment. So here I try again, I think she looked like she was grumpy with that sand. Was it too hot ?

    1. Amanda I think I was more grumpy with mommy taking photos and not leaving me alone. The weather there was warm but not too hot and it was late afternoon so it was ok.

  28. I've never been to Barbados or any of the Caribbean islands and I'm so jealous right now. I've been dealing with this nasty winter and here you are enjoying the beach. Time for me to actually get my passport and plan a Caribbean trip. Winter seems to be the best time to visit too.

    1. If you ever get a chance to go please let me know. I just know that you'll have a great time there. Anywhere where it's warm and nice is better than winter right now.
