BBB Finalists

My Destination have announced their Top 10 Finalists in the Biggest, Baddest Bucket list competition! I held my breath as I read the email this morning and though I didn't make the cut, this personalized touch left a smile on my face:

"We very much enjoyed your video, and loved getting to know all about the Bajan way of life. Thank you for showing us around your beautiful island, both above and underneath the water! It is quite obvious the amount of effort and thought you put in."

This whole experience has been pretty damn cool and I'm so grateful. THANK YOU to every single one of you who supported my video by liking, sharing, tweeting, pinning & making a fuss about it. I really, really appreciate it ♥

CONGRATULATIONS to all those amazing peeps who made the final 10 :) Their videos are hilarious, interesting and beautiful so you HAVE to check them out! Here's hoping the winner adds Barbados to their Bucket list so that we can show them more of what this amazing little island has to offer :)

Sunday Snapshots

It was quite rainy and overcast in this wee island today but that didn't stop us from heading to our favourite liming spot for some cheeky 'sundowners' :) We also did this on Friday, I think it's become 'our thing' amongst my friends.

Barbados to-do list

The other day I asked my Facebooky friends to help me out with something. One of my very best friends from Amsterdam is visiting me for two weeks and though I have some activities planned, such as island tours & sailing, I wanted some fresh ideas. I asked them what they would add to my 'Barbados to-do list' that's off the beaten track and whether they could suggest any lesser known beaches or watering holes. The response I got was super and I can't wait to try out some of their suggestions! 

Here are some of my favourites:

1. Hiking through Welchman Hall Gully
2. A picnic at Harry Smith beach
3. Giving Kite boarding a try

You can see the original post on my blog page here. Anything further you'd like to add?

Ma Bestie in Barbados

This girl right here, she's one of my best friends.
We met 15 years ago, right here in Barbados, about two days before this shot was taken. 

Since then we've gone through a lot together and our friendship has never faltered. 
Dominique graduated as a doctor last week, two days shy of her 25th birthday and I'm so incredibly proud of her :)

I know she'd kill me for writing anything too mushy on here but I can't help it. She's a firecracker this one, and I love her to bits. 
She's been back 3 times to visit me here but the last time was 10 years ago!
Today she's flying in to Barbados for two weeks of fun in the sun and 
I. can't. wait to show her a great time.

What's on your bucket list? I've been discussing this with peeps from all over recently thanks to the competition and it's always a great motivator to try weird & wonderful things! Read my list here and share some of your ideas! :)

Manic Monday: My Top 10 Favourite-est BBB videos

Here's a list of my Top 10 favourite video entries for the Biggest, Baddest Bucket list from around the world. There were SO many entries, from over 670 different destinations! Friends of mine have complained that they found it difficult to pick which ones to watch (especially since there were so many boring and ridiculous ones in between as well) so I've done the work for them. Some of these favourites are funny, some are super creative and others left me wanting the presenter as my new best friend. Enjoy!
 One more week until we find out the official Top 10 finalists :)
