Barbados,  Summer Vacation

Week 1 of Barbados

So I went to Barbados and I am staying there for 11 days. I am going to post every week what I have done each day!

Day 1: Sunday

Today we got to Barbados at 2:30am. I was really excited and couldn’t believe that I was there. It was my first time out of the country so I was even more excited.

We took a taxi to the hotel and when we got to the hotel and the taxi drove off when we realize that my brother left his bag in the taxi. We didn’t have the drivers phone number so we couldn’t call her. So my dad and brother had to go back to the air port and get my brother’s bag.

My family woke up at 11:00. And we went to ate at a restaurant called Brown Sugar. It was really good. I just wanted to keep eating. It was a buffet. I had macaroni pie, sweet potatoes, which was actually sweet, pork, and plantains.

We also went to the beach to check it out and my brother and I got soaking wet and we weren’t wearing our bathing suits. It was a lot of fun! And we are going to go beach hopping everyday.

Day 2: Monday

Today we didn’t eat breakfast because we woke up to late but for lunch we eat at Marina Cafe. It was really good and we had a great view of the harbor. Also there was free ice cream. I had fish cakes, which were really good and fries. After that we walked in the park and climbed trees.

Then we went to the bank to meet my dad’s sister there. We had a fun time talking.

After that we went to some stores to check out what they had. *Bajan  money is twice has much as American money, so remember that and don’t think it is that price in American money.

After that we went to dinner at Paulo Churrasco Do Brazil. It was good. And during the wait for the food we walked along side the beach. It was really beautiful and the waves had a beautiful sound.

When we got to the hotel we went to the pool and swam around. It was only 3 1/4 deep but it was still fun. My little sister got into the pool too with out fussing.

 

Day 3:  Tuesday

Today we went to eat at the Hilton. And we missed the buffet but we ordered food and I got waffles and my brother got red velvet pancakes. And we shared them. It was more like dessert then breakfast!

After the fun day at the beach we were soaking wet and full of sand we changed and went to a restaurant called Surfer’s Cafe, and we sat near the water and the waves would splash us when they crashed on the rocks or the place where we were sitting. It was a lot of fun. Very calming. I had penne pasta with alfredo sauce and it was really really good.

After the restaurant over the water we went back to the hotel. I fell asleep almost immediately.

Day 4:  Wednesday

Today we ate at the Hilton again and we had the buffet again too.

Also today we sat outside as usual but today the birds took an interest in our table and kept flying around us. Well we did ask for an outdoors seat.

We  saw a crab while we were in the Hilton hotel!

I couldn’t get a clear picture of the crab, so I took a video.

After we ate, we went to the beach and the beach had NO waves. So it wasn’t that much fun. I liked the first one we went to better. But we still some fun. We played in our flotes and Aidan and I made up games to play while we were there.

We went to the mall after the beach and looked for a place to eat. We search and searched and searched and searched until finally we found a place to eat called Ciao Bella. It was really good and we wanted to go there again. My brother and I shared a penne paste and pizza. It was really good. And we also got penne colada.

*Funny and not so funny* So when we got to the car we rented, the car wouldn’t come on. It lost it’s batterie. So my dad had to call the place and we waited like 4 hours. We waited in the mall and I read a travel guild and walked around with the baby while I waited. Finally the car came to give us a boost. I was so happy and relieved.

Also before we eat my brother asked if he could sit in the front and my mom said yes and I thought she was joking but when I got to the car Aidan was in the front and I had to sit all the way in the back which as no ACs and the windows didn’t open in the 3rd row!!! But I sat there none the less. I wasn’t really happy about it but I got use to it.

When we got to the hotel we ate BBQ chicken and fries. Then my dad, Aidan, and I went to get Häagen-Dazs and I got strawberry cheese cake in a waffle cone. And when I ordered I just said waffle cone and not the size and they gave me the biggest one!!!!!

The strawberry cheese cake was really good you should try some

 

Also my brother dropped his ice cream in the store and the store didn’t give him a free one after that!!!

Day 5: Thursday

Today we ate at the Hilton AGAIN for breakfast and then we went to the beach. We had fun riding the waves and trying and not succeeding to catch the fish. It was really fun and I got a tan again.

Then we went back to the hotel and we each took a bath and relaxed for a while. Then we went to the mall and we window shopped and looked around. Then we went to the food court and looked at some food to eat the next day.

Then we went to a restaurant called Nishi, it was soooo good. We eat outside and the restaurant was beautiful and the waitresses were really nice. I had miso soup, penne pasta, and California rolls and I shared the food with my brother. The owner came to talk with us and he was really nice as well.

Today I had a wonderful day like always and I hope tomorrow is good too.

Day 6: Friday

Today we went to the beach first and we had to climb down a cliff to get to the beach. It was fun to climb down and crabs were sticking out of the holes while we were going down. When we got to the beach the waves were really rough and big so I didn’t stay in the water to long. Also the sand looked pink at the beach. It was really cool and my parents got drinks in a coconut and they were really good.

After going to the beach we went to the hotel to get ready to go to my dad’s uncles house.

When we went to my dad’s uncles house it was really fun. I met family that I never met before and we had dinner, and it was delicious. I had salad, rice, and chicken, and for desert we had home made cake and some ice cream. It was a lot of fun. We also saw a lizard. And my brother was trying to make it come down.

Day 7: Saturday

Today we ate at the Hilton and it was very hot today. The back of the car was very hot and that was where I was sitting in the car.

We then went to Earth works and it was really cool. It is pottery shop and they make all their products by hand. They make beautiful pottery with tropical designs and colors. My parents had some of the plates from when they went to Barbados 13 years ago. I got to order a cup with my name on it and I will show you guys when it comes.

After that we went to the beach and the first beach we went to was the Alleyne beach *my last name* and it had no chairs and my mom said she is not going to a beach with no chairs or umbrellas so we checked out another beach it had no chairs either. So we just went to the Hilton beach *because we went there already and we know we liked it* It was really fun and the waves were bigger this time. The only thing was that I scraped my self on a rock and it really hurt. But other whys it was really fun.

We also had lunch and dinner at the beach too.

After we went back to the hotel to wash off we went to get ice cream and I got it in a cup this time, also no one dropped their ice cream. I got a Dulce De Leche and Strawberry cheese cake with gummy bears and it was really good.

This week has been so much fun and I have really enjoyed Barbados. I wish I had more then just 5 more days at Barbados!
