Rihanna takes Barbados beach holiday

Weak Holidays "It seems that Rihanna has opted to take a break back home in Barbados during the Christmas period.
The singing star, who was born in Saint Michael, was spotted taking a long walk along the beach, before going on a boat tour of the island.
Earlier this year, Rihanna’s then-Boyfriend, Chris Brown, was found guilty of assaulting her, but despite this and being ordered to stay away from one another for five years, the pair were said to be planning to meet in Mexico in September.

Tennis pro missing Barbados

Nation News "After leaving the island, the 19-year-old Dane wrote about her trip in a recent blog entry.
NOW THAT that I am back from Barbados, I thought you might like to hear about my trip. I spent ten days there with my parents and my brother Patrick.
We stayed at one of the most exclusive and beautiful resorts of the world, the Sandy Lane Hotel.
We had the owner's five-bedroom penthouse suite with a butler and full-time security. The suite was over 3 000 square-feet, with a big jacuzzi in the living room. It was nothing short of amazing.
The Sandy Lane Hotel has to be the nicest, most exclusive hotel I have ever stayed at."

In Barbados, the rum needs no umbrella

The Montreal Gazette "Barbados, considered the birthplace of rum, is the epicentre of this movement. In addition to St. Nicholas Abbey and Foursquare, there's Mount Gilboa, the island's oldest distillery, which produces a potstilled rum that has connoisseurs swooning, and Mount Gay, the most prestigious of the island's big distilleries, which has begun work on its own potstilled rum. As Mount Gay's master blender Allen Smith notes, 'There's a lot of interest in the complexity of these rums.'"

Heritage hunt to Barbados yields sweet treasure

Tampa Bay Online "I discovered my Applewhaite family line about 10 years ago and since then have dreamed of visiting the West Indies island of Barbados. That's where branches of the family migrated to from England in the early 1600s.
With this in mind, my husband booked a South Caribbean cruise to give me nine hours on Barbados. Knowing there wouldn't be time for document research at the local archives, I opted to spend the time exploring the island."

Beautiful, beautiful Barbados

The Barbados Advocate: "I was flying south from Canada for my first visit to Barbados and sat beside a member of the Barbadian Diaspora returning to the island for a series of cricket matches. While instructing me on the strategic play of this most West Indian of sports, he also noted that he was really a Canadian now, after some 34 years in Toronto. Then, under the left wing tip of the aircraft, the island appeared; my friend teared up for a fleeting second and said, “It always gets me when I see the island again”."
