Inspire: The Wild & Rugged

22nd June, 2015
The Wild and Rugged North Coast of Barbados

The wild and rugged are always beautiful! This can especially be said at sunset looking east on the most Northern point of the island of Barbados! Full of underwater caves, dramatic rock formations and gurgling currents, this spot overlooking the cliffs of the Animal Flower Cave is stunning beyond words! 

Explore: Lover's Leap

9th June, 2015
Lover's Leap St. Lucy

Lover's leap is located on the cliff's of Harrison Point Light House, St.Lucy!  The dark and gloomy legend has it that the daughter of one of St.Lucy's eldest residents, Mr. Cox. had fallen madly in love with a navel officer (from the nearby naval base) and accepted his hand in marriage. On hearing this the father immediately objected to this union, and as a result the couple decided to elope. One starry night the naval officer brought a small boat to whisk his soon to be wife away.

Accommodation Review: Sugar Cane Club & Spa

4th June, 2015
The Sugar Cane Club

Sugar Cane Club and Spa is one of those hotels which is tucked away in the northern part of Barbados overlooking the North West coast. It has a slightly Spanish feel with it terra cotta coloured roof and white walls; exuding a warm, tropical feeling at the same time. The hotel is an all inclusive, adults only hotel with rooms scattered across the lush landscape. We had the pleasure of staying at Sugar Cane Club and Spa in one of their garden suites located near the pool area.

In Season: Butter Beans

27th May, 2015
Butter Beans Loop Barbados

More commonly known as Romano Green Beans, butter beans are no doubt Barbadian favourite - even, the kids are in love with them. I remember growing up as a child and my grandmother smothering these beans with butter - it was the only vegetable I would devour before the rest of my food! I'm not sure if Bajans call them butter beans due to their natural buttery consistency and flavour or if it's just because you usually lather them with butter; Nonetheless they are pretty tasty!

Restaurant Review: Lemongrass Noodle Bar & Grill

18th May, 2015
Lemongrass Noodle Bar and Grill Barbados

We made a visit to Lemongrass Noodle Bar & Grill last week to devour some of the very tempting and flavourful dishes. If you didn't know already, Lemongrass is located in Limegrove Lifestyle Centre and is a modern South East Asian restaurant. We were greeted by the owner Sam, and were seated on the open air patio of the restaurant, surrounded by bamboo and Lemongrass's very own kitchen garden!
