On-Site Barbados: Exploring the Craggy North Shore
If you’re following us on Facebook, then you already know that Patrick and I are making our first trip together since we started Uncommon Caribbean about a year ago. We’re in Barbados right now, enjoying the fabulous West Indian-style hospitality at the Almond Beach Village and exploring as much of the island’s off-the-beaten-path wonders as we can pack into the next four days.
This is my fourth time in Barbados and Patrick’s second, but my bro definitely has a much better lay for the land than I do. Now, if we were doing a tour of the island’s finest meeting rooms, then I could certainly lead the way. Usually, my trips here consist of a late-night arrival, followed by an all-day meeting, a late dinner, and finally, an early morning departure back home. Doesn’t leave a lot of time for the type of exploration Patrick got to enjoy last year on his first UC assignment.
The awe-inspiring beauty of this place really made a strong impression on me. When you consider the raw power of these waves and the massive impact they’ve had on carving-out the sharp and jagged cliffs and coves that line the shoreline here, it really gives you a whole new appreciation for nature’s majesty.
Here are a few photos from today’s little adventure to give you a sense of what we saw…
