This island isn’t known for Russian voyagers. The reason is a long and rather costly flight. Rest here for the most part vacationers from the US, Germany and the UK. In any case, in the event that you are not perplexed of a troublesome street and visit Barbados, at that point you will need to return here once more.
Welcome to Barbados!
To begin with about elocution. It is right to state the name of the island with a highlight on the second syllable. However, in Russia, even numerous visit administrators make a sound highlight on the first.
Barbados is a state in the West Indies, situated on the island of a similar name. Alludes to the gathering of the Lesser Antilles. The capital of Barbados is the city of Bridgetown. The official dialect on the island is English. Here you will locate a nearby tongue, the supposed bajan. Try not to be amazed in the event that you don’t comprehend a word, regardless of whether you communicate in English well. Bajan accept broadened elocution, the completion of single word, in a manner of speaking, easily goes into the start of another. Disassembling is extremely troublesome. In such cases, pick up motions. Be that as it may, the nearby tongue isn’t generally conveyed.
His pleasant name Barbados got in the XVI century from Portuguese mariners. The primary thing they saw when they entered the island were palm trees whose crowns helped them to remember their whiskers. Furthermore, this word in Portuguese sounds like “Barbados” (“hairy”).
The west and south of the island is washed by the Caribbean Sea, the eastern shores are the Atlantic Ocean. Be that as it may, swimming is suggested just in the Caribbean. The Atlantic here is eager, with submerged streams. It stays just to appreciate this magnificence. Valid, there is a place on the Atlantic drift – (Oistins), where surfers accumulate far and wide. It’s unsafe to swim there, the rushes of the sea separate on the shore with such power that it’s even unnerving to stand close.
As per Greenpeace reports, Barbados has the cleanest Caribbean Sea. The water is really the most straightforward, however it is exceptionally salty and when coincidentally gets into the eyes, you begin to “get visually impaired”.
My recommendation is to swim with water glasses. Not exceptionally advantageous, particularly since there is no irregular submerged world in Barbados, yet you will spare your eyes. Incidentally, regardless of the extensive measure of salt, the skin does not dry the skin! There is no sentiment of snugness after water methodology. Be that as it may, make certain to deal with the skin from the sun. Sunbathe and consume here in a flash. Cream with a defensive factor SPF25 will be sufficient. The sun on Barbados rises right on time, at five toward the beginning of the day it’s extremely light, however it’s too soon – at six at night it’s night as of now. Neighborhood time lingers behind Moscow for eight hours (previously the move of hours in the winter it falled behind for seven hours, and in the mid year – for eight hours).
Go to the island is prescribed from December to June, at that point until the point when November comes the blustery season. Be that as it may, not fear terrible climate. Rain flies just a couple of minutes a few times per day, dries rapidly, the ocean does not wind up frosty. Along these lines, the state of mind of the climate won’t ruin it precisely, however it will be conceivable to save money on a voucher amid the blustery season (costs for convenience right now are one and a half circumstances lower than in the period from December to June).
It ought to be noticed that the island “Little England” is called not without reason. In excess of three hundred years, until 1966, Barbados was a state of Great Britain. This left the engraving on everything. The capital of Barbados has its Trafalgar Square, a landmark to Admiral Nelson and a little duplicate of the English Big Ben. Genuine, Trafalgar Square in 1999 was renamed Heroes Square, yet the landmark to Lord Nelson and Big Ben has remained. From the English, the occupants of the island likewise got the custom of drinking tea at 5 pm, an energy for cricket and golf, and also the fame of cruising.
Trip to Barbados
There are no non-stop flights from Russia to Barbados. Remote bearers offer flights to the island with a move in London or Frankfurt. On the off chance that you fly British Airways, at that point remember that you are sitting tight for the difference in airplane terminal. From Moscow, the plane will travel to Heathrow airplane terminal, and to Barbados you will get from Gatwick Airport. The street starting with one airplane terminal then onto the next takes 45 minutes. Getting to Gatwick is most straightforward with National Express transports. For two grown-up one way tickets, we paid 49 pounds. Take just pound sterling at the airplane terminal ticket workplaces. In this manner, trade cash ahead of time or have a bank card with you.
I attract your regard for this, since I saw the circumstance when a Korean young lady purchasing a ticket for a transport was cannot, since she needed to pay the euro. She needed to search for a trade office. It’s great in the event that you have time between flights. Be that as it may, envision, on the off chance that you get starting with one airplane terminal then onto the next you require rapidly, since there is brief period between flights.
You can legitimately remain in the UK for 24 hours. An officer at the airplane terminal will put a seal in his travel permit about it. In the event that time licenses, go for a walk around London and even visit a gallery (for instance, Madame Tussaud’s wax figures). Simply remember that the capital of Great Britain is a colossal city. What’s more, to get starting with one end of the city then onto the next requires some serious energy. Subsequently, on the off chance that you design a stroll around London, it is smarter to design your course at home and compute the movement time starting with one sight then onto the next.
We traveled to Barbados in November. In London it was hotter than in Russia, yet despite everything we didn’t remove the coat. Be that as it may, in Gatwick, each one of the individuals who checked in for the trip to Bridgetown were wearing shorts and slates. We likewise put on something else, which was extremely useful, in light of the fact that the capital of Barbados will meet you with sweltering and radiant climate. What’s more, change garments at Bridgetown air terminal, until the point that you experience the enlistment, there will be no plausibility.
The departure from Moscow to London takes 3.5 hours, London-Bridgetown flight keeps going eight. Incidentally, about the cost. For two grown-up round-trip tickets (economy class flight), we paid 88,000 rubles (cost for 2011).
Convenience and suppers
In Barbados, you can lease an inn room or loft. The second alternative, most likely, will turn out less expensive. We picked the choice with a lodging and a comprehensive framework. Seven day stretch of convenience in Sea Breeze Hotel Beach 4 * cost us $ 2000 for two. The room was sublime, with a patio sitting above the ocean. Furniture, bedding, towels and blankets are made of regular materials (bamboo, rattan). On the region of the inn three eateries – Mermaid, Azul and Beach Prezzo Beach Bar, two swimming pools, tubs, kids’ club, clothing, rec center, SPA zone (compliment from the lodging: amid registration you will be given a back rub testament for one individual in the SPA zone ).
In Barbados, every one of the shorelines are city. That is, you can sunbathe on the shoreline of any lodging that you like. Obviously, it isn’t permitted to utilize sun beds, inn towels, yet to sunbathe, swim – please.
The kitchen at Sea Breeze is European. Breakfasts and snacks – buffet, supper of eatery write (with menu). We inclined toward leafy foods, course, fish dishes. What’s more, at dinner attempted mixed drinks from the renowned Barbados rum. The nearby barkeep knew, most likely, several formulas, however everything was delectable! In the event that you don’t drink liquor, attempt organic product punch. It makes from new organic product with the expansion of different syrups. Essentially like it!
From nearby items and beverages we loved everything aside from coconut water. Offer it in plastic jugs at a cost of $ 15 for every liter. Numerous erroneously trust that coconut water is the same as coconut drain. Yet, this isn’t so. Water is in the focal point of the coconut and it is from it that the organic product is framed. For whatever length of time that the nut is youthful (as we were told on the island, so it is thought to be up to five months), there is a great deal of water in it and it is helpful (contains zinc, press, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, B and C vitamins). To taste something like a serum, just straightforward. We didn’t care for this drink, in spite of the fact that we attempted to enhance our living beings genuinely.
Nearby Mc’donalds – cheap food chain Chafette. The sustenance is very respectable. Attempt dessert and burgers with chicken. Simply remember that the parts are fairly huge. Consequently, for two, one sandwich and a serving of dessert is sufficient.
A neighborhood culinary element is the flying fish. It is filled in as an autonomous dish, and furthermore added to plates of mixed greens and sandwiches. Make certain to attempt “Ku-ku” – a dish of cornmeal and shrimp, “Peperpot” – an intense stew from various sorts of meat, sweetness of “Konkiz” from corn flour, coconut, pumpkin, grapes, sweet potatoes and flavors (this is cooked for a couple in a banana leaf. Exceptionally delectable).
Power in Barbados
The voltage in the system in Barbados is 110-120 V, the recurrence is 50 Hz. US standard attachments and attachments are utilized. To utilize European electrical apparatuses you require a connector. In inns 4 and 5 * it is without given of charge. In the extraordinary case, such a connector can be gotten (you will discover even in trinket shops, the cost is inside $ 10).
In our inn room we found that you can charge the apparatuses in the restroom utilizing a shaver outlet! Genuine, a sign was posted close it, cautioning that the outlet was proposed just for razors. Be that as it may, toothbrushes, cell phones, batteries for the camera discreetly “sustained” its vitality. This is a note.
Journeys and shopping in Barbados.
Barbados has a system of open transport. Hence, it isn’t hard to get starting with one corner of the island then onto the next. Numerous and taxi administrations. In any case, it is most advantageous to get to know Barbados, obviously, via auto. Leasing an auto is simple. Locate a firm help at the lodging. An agent of the organization will drive the auto wherever you inquire. Leave the keys to the auto toward the finish of the rent can be at the front counter of the lodging. No “representativ
