After a 7 and a half hours in Virgin’s finest premium economy class, we arrived yesterday on the island of Barbados. Slightly chaotic scenes at the airport with 2 other arrivals coinciding with our one hour early flight were made easier by Chloe bumping into an old work colleague and Allan getting a few messages to say Nufc had beaten the European champions 3-2 which, according to Allan’s football logic, now means that Newcastle United are now the best team in Europe. Ahem.
A quiet night eating and drinking some supplies kindly left by the owner of our rented house, Philip and sitting on the balcony watching the local humming birds. Then this morning, a big adventure of a walking to our local beach less than 10 minutes away then off to the supermarket and back to get supplies and check out places to eat. It does feel like we won’t be doing too much over here, which is exactly what we want to do.
