Bummed Out on Barbados

Never let it be said that you can please all the people all of the time...but you certainly can please some of the people some of the time

Tampa Exotic Travel Examiner: "While I wouldn’t recommend Barbados for travelers on a budget or as a one-day wonder, its west-coast resorts are great for an extended stay. The pink- and white-sand beaches are world class, and most hotels offer outstanding cuisine with top-notch (and expensive) restaurants available via cab on a reservation basis. My wife Kelly and I stayed for three nights at the lovely Treasure Beach Hotel (www.treasurebeachhotel.com) about two years ago. Our villa faced a pool shaded by gorgeous trees, and only a few feet beyond the beach and Caribbean Sea. During our stay we enjoyed golf, fishing and trying new cuisine such as a flying fish sandwich (I didn’t like it).

By all means consider Barbados in a Caribbean itinerary, but I’d pass unless it’s part of a package deal that includes a few more interesting locations (like St. Thomas and Antigua)."

Face to face with a vicious Akita

I came face to face today with a vicious Akita,me and my little girl, luckily I had her in my arms while we were about to walk through the West Terrace district.We came around a corner and there was this huge Akita.It was actually taller than my little girl.She would have been looking it straight in the face. Now I am naturally afraid of dogs even the smallest of Chihuahuas.I avoided eye contact with the dog although peripherally I could see that he stopped and looked up at me.I continued walking calmly as though there was no threat about. Why do I say he was vicious? That is what I am hearing from people living in the area.Maybe he was just out of his territorial zone but I hope his owners keep in fenced in a lot better.That is something that I wouldn't want to happen again. Just a few months ago a child was mauled by an Akita.There was a time when the main dogs you used to encounter was the 'lowly' salmon tot retriever;A unique Barbados mongrel.Such is not the case now.To
