• Caribbean Love Affair

    Caribbean Love AffairThe Caribbean love affair began when I first came to Barbados on my honeymoon many years ago.  Little did I know that it would be the start of two lifelong love affairs – one with the man I married and one with the island paradise in the sun.

    I could tell you about the virtues of being married to Arthur but I suspect you’d rather know what brings me back to Barbados year after year, and why it will always have a special place in my heart.

    When I tell you I come from Canada (aka The Great White North) you’ll know the winters are seriously long and frigid.  In -20 c. temperatures and deep snow, the thought of that wonderful Bajan sunshine in January gets me through the dark November days.  By December, I’m mentally packing my bag with sunglasses, sandals and sarongs and can hardly wait to leave the down coat and polar fleece behind!  I know that aches and pains will disappear and the sunshine (not to mention the odd tropical cocktail) will have a therapeutic effect as soon as I step off the plane.
