Barbados part I: Homemade!

For Dee’s birthday, we celebrated by jet setting to Barbados!

It was a whirlwind holiday that was planned in less than 2 weeks.  We had an amazing time to say the least.  The Friday we landed, we decided to go to a local and popular hotspot, Oistins. The first night we were lucky enough to meet 2 new friends: Dominic and Ian.

We had such a great time hanging out with them that it carried out through the next day.  Dominic invited us over for a homemade Caribbean lunch.  Now… how could we pass that up?

The meal was absolutely amazing!!!  Thank you to Ian for getting the fish ready and especially to Dominic for mastering the whole meal.  Tasty and mind blowing!

One of the most genuine experiences on the island!

P.S.  Are you following me on instagram , yet?!?!?!

Yes, staying at South Gap Hotel and popped into Salvio’s for breakfast and dinner.  Highly recommended! Andy is a great and hospitable chef.  The food was delicious and the view of the Atlantic ocean was amazing! 

Googa Mooga!!!

Who’s going besides me?
