Bajan Living

April 19, 2010

By Katrice

I woke up early yesterday morning to soak up the sound of the Atlantic Ocean outside my window. Barbados had been my home for just a few days and it was a profound signature of my time on the island. I imagine the lull of breaking waves the very reason for Barbadians' complete mastery of relaxation. And it draws you in. But, the ocean really is just the beginning of the Barbados experience. The sights, the sounds, the flavors ...  One taste of the Bajan experience, and you'll be planning your next trip back before leaving.
