    My Trip to Barbados 2013

    I truly loved my time in Barbados and reall7 enjoyed the tradewind that were present for most of my stay. Some basci facts about Barbados are:

    Barbados has over 65 miles of gorgeous beaches.  There are coral reefs with sunken ships for snorkeling and scuba diving enthusiasts. There are beautiful golf courses and hiking trails. The National sport is Polo. They also have the Mount Gay Rum distillery with tours and The Caribbean Cigar Company.

     

    One of my favorite things about Barbados was how clean and beautiful the entire island is.  The Barbadians are very friendly and helpful.  Barbados has a very high literacy rate and standard of living. And last but not least, my resort-The Crane.  Not only was it beautiful, but I had my own washer and dryer in my suite!

     

    One of our days in Barbados was spent visiting some of their Historical sights, and they have many.  We went to the Garrison Historic District (A Unesco World Heritage Site) and saw the changing of the guards and visited the house George Washington stayed in for 6 weeks during 1751as a young man visiting his sick brother.  It was Washington’s only trip outside the continental US.  Then we went and saw the garrison itself, St Annes Garrison built by the British in 1789.  In November of 1966, when Barbados achieved its full Independence from Britain the Garrison raised the Barbados Flag. They have a very large collection of historical cannons preserved at the fort.

     

    On another day we went to the Barbados Concorde Experience, which frankly I wasn’t too excited about.  But I was wrong.  In addition to having the original jet, (that flew from London to Barbados) all set up to tour, they also had a mockup of the waiting lounge and the cockpit.  I was both educational and fun.  That same day, a small group of us went to Harrisons Cave.  Another awe inspiring excursion.  You ride down into these massive caverns, covered with stalagmites and stalactites that are breathtaking, little rivers and pools dotting the areas.  While on the tour they explain how the island was formed, and where their water supply comes from.

     

    That night we went to Oistins fish Fry.  Every kind of food under the sun, live bands, with dance floors set up and all types of local crafts, jewelry and toys for sale in little booths.  For more upscale restaurants and clubs, you can’t go wrong with St Lawrence Gap.  There are also some awesome shopping opportunities on Barbados.

     

    There truly is something for everyone in the family on this Island.  There are some all inclusive resorts here and some adults only resorts too, As a matter of fact, Barbados is the location of the newest Sandals resort!

    Home to both black sand and white sand beaches with water so blue and clear that coral formations can be spotted from the air, Grenada's volcanic origin has created a landscape of great beauty and variety, with rainforests, a 13-acre crater lake, cascading cliffs, and hot springs-the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway to Sandals Resorts. Explore the natural splendor of the lush terrain and discover the history of the Island of Spice with visits to historic forts or the underwater sculpture park. Located in the southeastern Caribbean just north of Trinidad and Venezuela, the tri-island state of Grenada is made up of three islands, Grenada being the largest, occupying 133 square miles.

     The Island of Spice

    The distinct and pungent aroma of spices will assail your nostrils. There are more spices in Grenada per square mile than any other place in the world! Cloves, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, cocoa, nutmeg, and mace grow in abundance here. Nutmeg is the country's biggest export, producing one-third of the world's supply. Used to season anything from meats and vegetables to cocktails and Grenada's national dish, Oil Down, this super spice, is so revered that it even has a place on the country's flag.

    St. George's Bustling Harbor

    Named in honor of King George III of England, the capital city St. George's is home to three forts, narrow streets, a vibrant spice and vegetable market, horseshoe-shaped harbor, and historic tunnel that connects Bay Town to the Carenage. With stately Georgian architecture and fish-scale tiles decorating the town, a medley of brick warehouses, stone buildings, and painted timber houses light up this "city on a hill." St. George's epitomizes the spirit of this beautiful island, housing both colorful and unique structures and giving visitors a true sense of Grenada's historical past and extraordinarily beautiful present. St. George's has also become synonymous with maritime activities, inspiring various regattas and the annual Port Louis Grenada Sailing Festival.

    Once upon a time across the bluest of oceans, an island was born of lava and sand - an untouched paradise whose heart was a turquoise lagoon of unimaginable beauty and tranquility. The first visitors came and explored. To honour the magic of the place, they named it "Likuliku", meaning "calm waters".

    Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a haven of subtle luxury and the first and only resort in Fiji with over-water bures.   It is a unique and special place designed with integrity to cultural values, traditional designs and architecture, and is embraced by the renowned warmth of the Fijian people.  

    From the water it looks like an ancient village, so traditional is the style.   The beating heart of the Resort is a magnificent building in the design of a Fijian canoe house.   Surrounded by sprawling ceilings, hand-woven thatch and an exotic mix of natural materials and modern elements, Likuliku embodies the richness of an ancient culture with vibrant present-day lifestyle touches.

    Welcome to Fiji's most unique luxury escape for couples. 

     Welcome to your magical sanctuary.

     Land Only  :     from $879.00*

    ISLANDS 888-554-7526 or islandstravel@earthlinknet
    The 88 rooms and suites in white buildings with candy-colored trim set the stage with a tropical decor of ceiling fans, pickled-pine and wicker furnishings, and white tile floors. Each has a balcony or patio with a sea or pool/garden view.  Most of the rooms have hammocks.
    Head to the elegant poolside restaurant, Reflections, for a buffet breakfast and an a la carte lunch and dinner. The popular and more informal Drifters serves a casual buffet lunch and Bajan-style grill and barbecue at thatch-covered tables near the beach for dinner. Both restaurants require reservations, so plan ahead. Guests can take the complimentary water taxi to dine at any of this chain's other hotel restaurants. The Cave Bar gives you an option: Walk in or swim through a waterfall to enter. Refreshing tropical drinks are made to your specifications.
    You'll long remember the dramatic waterfall effect of the 3-tier, rock-bordered swimming pool. Padded lounge chairs line the sandy beach, for those relaxing days spent in the sun. Water sports can keep you busy all day long: sailing, boogie boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, water-skiing, and snorkeling, to name just a few. Row a glass-bottom over the reefs for a spectacular view, get a good work-out at the state-of-the-art gym, and lob a few balls on the floodlit tennis courts.
    You'll get a second wind in the evening, listening to the live sounds of calypso, jazz, and other rhythms. The kids club, for those 3-11, has arts, crafts, games, and movie screenings.
    This is one of the most delightful All-Inclusive hotels in the Caribbean!

    2011 Luxury Travel Convention

     

    This year The Luxury Travel Convention was held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. (The Mandalay Bay Resort was also hosting the Rodeo Convention and the Michael Jackson Fan Convention. Cowboy boots, sparkly gloves and huge bags full of travel information.   If you don’t think we were an odd mix walking around the Mandalay.)  This is one of the largest yearly Travel Convention/Learning events held.  We had the opportunity to meet with representatives of the Tourism boards from so many countries.  China was there, Japan, Mexico, Australia, and most of the Caribbean countries, including the American Virgin Islands.  And let’s not forget Spain, Germany and the rest of Europe. The list goes on and on.  We learned where they are reinvesting in their infrastructure to make going to their destination more welcoming to their guests.  Many destination resorts were also there, to show us the changes, additions and renovations going on at their resorts around the world.  You learn so much in such a limited amount of time.  For example-did anybody know they have skiing in China?

    As always, staying in Las Vegas is a new experience every time. Every resort/casino was decorated for the season with their own special touches, everything from Victorian at the Venetian to chic and modern at Aria. The Venetian even has a little out door ice-skating rink set up in the front of the resort for the holiday season, with lots of Christmas decorations. (During the day not so impressive, but at night when it’s all lit up it is gorgeous.) And, as usual driving down the strip at night is its own unique experience. The patisseries at Paris are awesome, pretty displays with lots of variety to choose from. (I can personally highly recommend the Raspberry Napoleons)On Tuesday, we went to the Buffet at The Aria. $32.00 to get in for dinner and worth every penny. The buffet has everything from Crab Legs and sushi to prime rib, roasted turkey and Italian choices. Wednesday morning we had breakfast at the House of Blues, located in the Mandalay Bay Resort and it too was delicious.  Wednesday night we went to the Palms for dinner at N9ne, the steak house.  It was incredibly good.  Then it was on to Rain, one of the clubs at the Palms for the VIP Party for us all.  This club is awesome, the seating is all on different levels, and the dance floor is perfect!  Sharon had an espresso martini that she said was awesome and I had something called Barry’s Bomber that was perfect.  The DJ was terrific, the dancing was fun, and I had a great time. We also went up to the Playboy club to see what it was like.  The view from up there is incredible. You feel like you are looking at the whole city.  Thursday was the last day and after a final  tour of the exhibitors, we headed for the airport and after a quick flight of 45 minutes we were back in LA.
