Barbados Honeymoon

While no one was looking, we left snow covered hills for turquoise waters and blue skies. We spent our long awaited honeymoon in Barbados, in the Caribbean, and loved every second of it. This was a first for both of us to go somewhere sunny in the middle of winter. I couldn’t have dreamt of anything better. The warmth and sunshine filled me with energy and gave strength for the rest of winter.

The island was a delight for the senses. I couldn’t get enough of swimming in the transparent sea, seeing turtles popping their heads at the surface. I remember the smell of the frangipani and all the other flowers bursting with colours such as bougainvilleas and hibiscus. I had the best mangoes and bananas in my life, discovered white sweet potatoes and ate fresh fish nearly every day.

As, a few days ago, we ate a papaya which we had picked in our garden and brought back home, this brought a big smile on my face, remembering all the happy times we had there. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy :)
