Subj:TRAVELLED TO BARBADOS --(01NOV01)
REPLYING TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED TO MY TRIP TO BARBADOS 01NOV. & (BUDGET LODGING REQUEST).
At the last moment, a colleague became aware of my travels, and personally contacted the owner of the perfect little place for me:
ABBEVILLE (Guesthouse) & BERT'S BAR, on the South Coast (few meters opposite the renown ACCRA BEACH).
OWNER: Mr. Bert (Barbadian-Canadian)
ADDRESS: RockleyBeach, Christ Church, Barbados, W.I.
TEL: (246) 435. 7924
It's a great budget locale for young and elderly.
They have fully functional swimming pool, plenty of open eating-lounging area with sports bar (Happy Hour 1/2 from 1630-1800 Mon-Fri),,,and SLOT MACHINES.
The taxi costs approx $20.00 from the Arpt.
Room Costs: Winter: $45-60.00USD Summer: less
The ISLAND TOUR with L.E. WILLIAMS Tour Operator is approx
$65.00USD (includes Lunch at the Famous Atlantis Hotel at BathSheba, and 2 Rum Punch Breaks).
My tour Guide/Driver was Mr. Dwayne (approx 22 yrs young, courteous, vivacious and informative).
REMINDER: THERE IS NO FOOD SERVED ON FLIGHTS UNDER (4) FOUR HOURS DURATIONS. ENSURE TO TAKE YOUR OWN FOOD. Take into consideration the (1) hour or so journey to any airport, the possible 2-3 hours check-in, possible (1) hour delay of flight, the actual (3-4) hours flying time, then finally the (1) hour delay in Immigration, baggage collection and Customs!
This is something the airline no longer takes into account, besides claiming the cash shortage to provide food, so take charge of your own health and well being (inasmuch as one can).
Many thanks again to all who clamoured to my rescue at the time I
launched my pleas onto the WorldWideWeb. My purpose for going to
BGI for very well accomplished, and hope to be of assistance to anyone ..upon request in the future.
